Baby Quilt

This quilt, that I had pieced quite a while ago, is finally quilted, finished, and gifted. Thank you Betsy for doing the quilting. I added the binding and gave it to the Sudame family for their new baby.

We received these potholders made by Betsy for Christmas. Thank you! We are now using them; we were low. They are appreciated.

Quilt for Me

Betsy made me a quilt with a lot of Japanese fabrics! Isn't it pretty? It took me so long to post our Christmas presents because Andreas was daunted by the size for photos. I love it. Thank you.

Gift From Albert

I had given Albert some leftover enchiladas I had made because he wanted to try real Mexican food. He liked them and thanked me with these yummy cookies from Belarus, his home country. They're especially good with tea.

Andreas gave me pens for Christmas in my stocking. He knows my weakness.


Parental Snacks

Mike and Betsy sent us some snacks right around the new year. Andreas ate all the crackers within a week. Leonora's been enjoying all the jam, too, since I wasn't able to make any last year and we were low.

Thank You Njomza!

Njomza brought these wonderful truffles from Germany when she visited. Thank you Njomza, we appreciate them and it was great to see you, even if it was so short.
