New Book "Simply Triangles"

Here is a sneak preview of my new book "Simply Triangles"  The release date is in January.  I got the first copy in the mail this morning.  So excited. 

Close up of "Bursting Forth"

Find the triangles in "My Flower Garden".  To order go to Delightful Piecing.

 Every year before Christmas us four ladies go shopping.  I got home and crawled into bed at 3:38am.  We end our day with eating out and setting around a table for about 2 hours.  It is a blast and a day I always look forward to.

                          For those of you who don't know these are my sister-in-laws and my mother-in-law.

 Going to Dairy Queen after the Christmas program. Mom and Dad joined us for the evening.

My all time favorite is a caramel Sunday with wet nuts.

 There were three tables so everyone could set down at one time.
