I know it is February and no one wants to think about Christmas. I made quite a few Christmas ornaments from October through December last year. Here are a few pictures. Some are personalized for customers.

Badge Reels and A Memory Quilt
A friend of mine who's a nurse suggested that I start making badge reels and selling them. There is Velcro glued on the back of the design so that they can be changed according to the season. Back in October I made about twelve badge reels and she took them to work. She sold all but one badge reel that evening. Well that definitely got the ball rolling. I have been stitching badge reels like crazy since then. I know I have over 50 different designs in my Etsy shop.
I made one Memory quilt last year. A sweet lady asked me to make this quilt for her daughter for Christmas. It is out of her younger sister's clothes. She had passed away a few years ago.
Here is a cute picture of Tim and I right before Christmas. We were doing last minute shopping and stopped at the park to look at Christmas trees that local businesses had decorated. Right when we were about to finish it started raining.

DIY Easy Spaghetti Sauce Recipe
1/2 of a Large Yellow Onion, chopped
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tbsp of Garlic, minced
2 28 oz cans of Crushed Tomatoes
2 tsp of dried Basil
1 lb of mild Italian Sausage
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the mild Italian sausage in a skillet on medium high heat. Brown it until there is no pink meat. Drain off the fat. Set off to the side. Heat up the extra virgin olive oil in a stock pot on medium heat. Saute the onions, garlic and basil for about 5 minutes or longer depending on how cooked you want them. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir well. Finally add the Italian sausage to the sauce. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
You can omit the meat if you want a meatless sauce. You could also cook other vegetables with the onion and garlic. We ate this over spaghetti squash. It would be great over zucchini noodles as well.

Inspirational Vinyl Shirt
I made this shirt for myself not too long ago. It is red and I definitely stand out when I where it. The gold heat transfer vinyl really pops off of the red shirt. I have gotten a lot of compliments about this top. Love yourself. You are beautiful and exactly the way God made you.

Alabama Quilt Sneak Peak
I have been meeting with my friend Brenda from church almost every Monday evening after work to help her make an Alabama themed quilt. The are some machine appliqued blocks in the quilt. 24 to be exact. We have spent many hours on them. I told her last night that if anyone asked how much it cost to make them one to tell them $500. 😁 We started sewing the sashing to the quilt blocks last night. This is a sneak peak.

Pinterest Recipe Success
|Ham and Cheese Party Roll Ups|
I was searching my Pinterest board of recipes for something easy to make. With a house full of boys it is hard to find something everyone will like. I'd give this a 3 out of 5 star rating because 3 of us loved it and 2 didn't. I loved it and think most of my friends would as well. It is definitely a ladies brunch or church gathering dish.
The recipe called for Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. I had neither. I used yellow mustard and 1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar instead. It turned out great. They could of cooked for 2 to three minutes longer.
