The Wine Tote from Let's Do Lunch has always been a wonderful hostess gift, so I decided to add a little something extra to mine this year! This Santa-themed wine tote is sure to be a hit, especially if it's filled with wine!
Elsa, Anna, and Olaf are having a slumber party and will need some snacks! I've found two delicious recipes: lemon bar buddies and microwave kettle corn!
Microwave Kettle Corn is sweet and savory - the perfect combination! Just stir butter, sugars, and oil together, mix in popcorn kernels, and microwave (I use an offset dinner plate to let steam escape). Salt when finished for a fast, easy, delicious treat!
Lemon Bar Buddies are fun to make with kids - just stir white chocolate chips, lemon curd, and butter together and pour over rice chex. Shake 'em up with powdered sugar for a yummy no-bake treat.
Whenever I need a quick quilt for a gift, I make Morning, Noon, and Night because it is so fast and simple to put together. It's one of my favorites for that reason!
No matter which quilt I make, I like to finish the binding by machine because it is quick and durable. Here's how:
Finger press the binding away from the center. Fold the binding around to the back and stitch “in the ditch”, catching the binding underneath.
Right before you reach the corner, look underneath and fold the edges exactly as shown. You may wish to place a pin to hold it. The side part must fold on top so it stays in place as it goes toward the needle.
Stop with the needle down at the corner to turn.
Terry’s Tip: I like to fold each corner when I get there because if I try to pin them ahead of time it doesn’t work as well for me.
