On to Christmas

I had a great Thanksgiving. Late that night it stopped raining and started snowing... We woke up to less than 1/2 inch snow on the ground.  Now onto Christmas. It will be here and gone in no time at all I am sure.  Here is a project I finished. Many more projects on my to do list.

Yardsale treasure..

I found this yardsale find at my friends yardsale... Well of course it is a great find because it is a snowman box. I am putting sewing things in it. Here is a pic of the top of it.
Here is some dishrags that I have been knitting.

Mid November already....

This year is flying by.. Wintercraft was yesterday at our local elementary school. Seems like I just attended the one last year, only yesterday..  I love to see and buy new crafts. I bough some creamsicle fudge. It is "wonderfully delicious". If you remember and like the old time "dream sicle" ice cream bars then you would like this.                                                         
Orange Creamsicle Fudge
3/4 cup margarine (1 1/2 stick of margarine)
                                                                         3 cups sugar
7oz. jar of marshmallow cream
2/3 cup of evaporated milk (5oz)
10 oz. of vanilla chips (white chocolate)
3 tsp. orange flavoring
9 drops of red food coloring
12 drops of yellow food coloring

Mix sugar, milk and margarine in heavy saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat while stirring. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla chips and marshmellow cream. Stir until chips are completely melted. Remove about 2/3 cup of mixture and set aside. Add flavoring and coloring to remaining mixture left in the pan. Mix well and pour into a 9x13 greased baking dish. Stir in the cup of remaining mix using a butter knife and making swirling motions. Refrigerate until completely cool. Cut into squares. Enjoy!!!!
P. S. Don't forget to take out the calories!!LOL
