Susan’s So Thankful Give-Away #11: Six Fat Quarters

This is my new kitten, Wicked, with a collection of six pretty fat quarters in shades of yellow, peach, pink and blue. They look to me like they are from a collection of 1930s fabrics, but I don’t have any more information about them! (If you know the designer or fabric company that makes them, please leave a comment and let me know, so I can share it.) They came in the goodie bag given to teachers at International Quilt Festival.

Here’s your chance to win! Leave a comment after this post and tell me a bit about your pet, if you have one. I’ll pull a name at random at 9 p.m. on Thursday Dec. 8, and send you the fabrics. (But not the kitten. She’s mine!) THE WINNER IS: Rhonda G!

Chocolate Ginger Crinkles


Let the holiday baking begin! These are one of my favorite cookies; they are highly spiced, and require at least one big glass of milk as an accompaniment. They are slightly chewy, not crisp – as long as you don’t cook them too long – and are best served warm. (You can heat the cooled cookies up in the microwave by heating them for just a few seconds.)
