Homemade potstickers

I tried making these last night. Total pain. But they tasted pretty
yummy. Next time I'll either find a pasta roller to use, or buy
premade wrappers cuz the dough was a little thick and became kinda
gummy at times.

I posted another post right before this, since I can only post 1
picture per post ;)

Quilt for Clara

It's a dark picture, and Mollie wouldy move from the bed, but here it
is. She's getting it for Christmas and think it's going to Grammy ;).
It's a lapquilt, but perfect for Clara

The Nutcracker

Here's my little snowball for the second year in a row. I love the
performances twice a year, but I'm exhausted from today and yesterday!

Gift bags

I'm making a few of these little drawstring origami bags for Christmas
presents. Fill with goodies or a small present and I'll be set.

I finally decided to attempt soft pretzels. I got this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It was pretty easy to follow, and over all took a couple of hours, but most of that was proofing time for the dough. They turned out yummy and salty and warm--so good!

Some new sites I've been enjoying are: Smitten Kitchen, Color Chic, and Sew Mama Sew. I don't know how many recipes and tutorials I've printed out. Now to actually make some of this stuff!

Baseball and talent show

Wrong hat, she was upset, but still willing to smile.

Hard to tell, but Clara was doing the bunny hop while standing on 2nd base. Notice her feet are off the ground.
