What I am working on....

I am very lucky; all my Christmas Projects are finished!!


What did I do?

I started a new one!

But, this one will be for next year.
Even though you could easily finish it this year, I am in no hurry.

It is the new pattern
Sparkle Party by Stephanie from Loft Creations.

I love the black and bright version, but I am stealimg, coping, using, making mine in the Christmas Colors she has posted on her blog.

I love polka dots and this just makes me so happy!!

MMM....So Good!!!!

A fairly new tradition has begun in our family. Thanks to one of my son-in-laws we have discovered the wonderful taste of Zabar's, Babka, and Rugelach!!He introduced us to these amazing tastes a few years ago.

Hence a tradition was born!!

We live in Illinois and Zabar's is in New York (thank Heavens or I would weigh a ton).

So, Once a year around the Holiday's I order Babka and Rugelach for everyone!!

Chocolate, because as said on the Seinfeld show "Cinnamon is the inferior Babka".( Not true also yummy). This year I also got the  good old black and white cookie, yes, also delicious!

So, time for me to go as my coffee is getting cold!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
