Snowflakes & Blueberry Martini's

What a combo-Right?
This time of year we I seem to be 
all over the place. 
Here is a few things to share!

This my quilt for our guilds retreat Challenge this year. We where to make a limited size piece that was a Christmas song title, we were not to use any letters or numbers. So "Let It Snow".


Recently while in Florida we had gone to Stonewood Grill & Tavern. I had one of the best drinks ever! So over Thanksgiving while my family was home we had to make these. And it would not be right if I didn't share this deliciousness with you. One of the most light and fresh drinks I ever had.

Blueberry Martini

8 fresh blueberries
1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces Van Gogh blueberry vodka
Splash lemonade
* Place seven blueberries and the simple syrup in a shaker and muddle them.
* Add Ice, the vodka and lemonade and shake vigorously.
* Strain into a chilled martini glass.
* Garnish with a fresh blueberry on the rim.

Till We Quilt Again,


  1. I love these snowflakes, all different sizes on the blue background. I am so drawn to snowflakes and would be happy to have this wallhanging in my home. Anything with blueberries sounds good to me!

  2. That block is so cute! I don't quilt much but sure enjoy it when I do :0)

  3. What beautiful little piece! Isn't batting (and shadow trapunto) perfect for winter theme quilts?

  4. Beautiful piece! I love snowflakes!

  5. Beautiful snowflakes and that Martini sounds good!


Thank You for stopping by and leaving a few words. I will answer questions for all to read or you can email me privately for a private response. Either way I will answer you soon. Till We Quilt Again, Helen
