Warm.. and heavenly

The warm is this flannel Christmas quilt that I made for my parents. It wasn't something I had planned - but I decided I had the time and wanted to make them a quilt for Christmas. I remembered this Jingle Flannel's that I had purchased a while back. It worked perfect.

One thing I learned making my first all flannel quilt - they are heavy. I was working up a sweat while quilting this bad boy.

I went with a simple pattern.. used the charm squares in the middle.. and Fat Quarters all around the outside. The back is all red.. so I didn't take a picture.. kinda boring.

And the binding is a little scrappy - I used some fat quarter scraps and some of the backing fabric too.
Now for the Heavenly.. I received our Christmas box from my parents today. The kids put all the gifts under the tree.. and also inside the box was candy for all of us.
My Mom made sure to put each of our favorite candies inside.. Kit Kats for my husband.. Rolo's and Snickers for the kids. And for me..

Chocolate Chippers!!! OMG.. I forgot how much I loved these lil slices of goodness! They are Chocolate covered potato chips in case you have never had them. These are from a family owned candy store in my home town. And my Mom knows they are my Kryptonite. The chocolate is so smooth and yummy.. and the salty potato chips are Red River Valley grown.. yummmmmm... I will be savoring these thru the holidays! Thank you MOM!!!
