January 25 2012 Appalachia Newsletter


Greetings to all folks near and far.

The season to be jolly will never end if we keep our jolly going strong. I hope you winter is giving you the time to be with family and dear friends.

I am working on finishing up some quilts to have them ready for Christmas presents. Quilting takes a lot of time and love. My quilts are handmade and sewn. One is a Victorian Crazy quilt, one is a Log Cabin pattern, and one is an Applique flower pattern. Quilting is one of those hobbies I do in winter months and it makes me feel warm and productive.

Beading is also another passion of mine. I love Native American style beading and apply that to my cloth doll clothing, medicine bags, bracelets and anklets.

What are your winter hobbies? I would love to hear about it in my forum.

Here is my latest article from the Appalachia site at BellaOnline.com.

Turkey Soup Recipe
Winter is the best time for homemade soups and a good old fashioned turkey soup will warm up the kitchen and put smiles on faces.

A hearty homemade soup that has taken a lot of time and love is good for the soul.

Some of the earliest settlers in Appalachian regions were German. The Pennsylvania Dutch (Doetch) are still strong in their communities and traditions.

An old German folk saying:

Auf gut Wetter vertrau', beginnt der Tag nebelgrau.
Count on a good weather day if it starts out foggy gray.

Till next time, may your home be filled with laughter and may it ring from floor to rafter.

Blessings and may you walk in peace and harmony.
