Christmas Tradition . . .

What would Christmas be without lots of sweet stuff?DSC04678  

These peanut butter squares became a bit of a tradition and created many good memories for my brothers and myself.DSC04682 

The rule was that I would make batches of this for each of them and fill special Christmas containers and give it to them each year.


If they brought the containers back to me (clean!) then I would make them a new batch the following year.

DSC04688 Unfortunately they are now living in different Provinces than me and it’s become difficult to maintain this tradition.DSC04690

This year I have created a “Smilebox” slideshow showing these photos and teasing them with how good this really would be if they could only be home.DSC04704

I hope that their families can all get together and make a batch of this easy sweet treat and create some new memories around this easy recipe.DSC04713

I hope that the instructions are clear enough for anyone who wants to make a batch for their dessert tray – let me know if you need more details!

And, speaking of Christmas memories . . .

 Rural Jardin Fat Quarter Bundle by French General for Moda

Cotton Charm Quilts is having a Christmas Memories Giveaway and I’ve added these lovely items to my Dear Santa wish list.  I know the Rural Jardin line is not available just yet, but I’d sure like my name attached to one of these new bundles as soon as it arrives.

Whimsy Jelly Roll by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda

Same goes for this lovely jelly roll by Fig Tree . . . it looks sooooooooooo pretty!

Bennington Schnibbles Pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

And next on my Christmas wish list is a BIG package of Schnibbles patterns.  I’ve been seeing some of these lovelies made up across blogland and I think they are very, very nice.  A large package of these would fit nicely under my tree this year.

Wishing is a wonderful past time – don’t you think?!?!?!


‘til next time,
