Last post of 2020 -

Hello everyone 
I sewed a little today and made a mat for our dog’s food and water dishes.  
I used an old white hand towel for the back and a scrap piece of printed fabric for the top. 
I pinned them right sides together and machine stitched all the way around,  leaving an opening for turning,  

I rounded the corners as I machine stitched so I wouldn’t have to fiddle and try to make sharp corners with the thick terry cloth backing,  
Then I just machine quilted the lines between the hearts and sewed all around the edge,

Ducky eats in our living room and I think the mat and white bowl look much nicer than the cake pan on the bare floor he was using.  
It’s cold today and I’m really enjoying our gas fireplace 
Ducky seems to say  his supper tastes better on the pretty mat

We had an easy supper- something I’ve been making ever since our children were toddlers.  
We call them nachos
You need tortilla chips, refried beans (homemade would be great), jalapeños as desired and grated cheese. 
Just spread a single layer of chips on a baking tray- I liked to line the tray with foil and spray with a Pam type spray but those steps just help with serving and cleanup and are not necessary 
Then put a spoonful of beans on each chip, top with a jalapeño and grated cheese. 
Bake until the cheese is melted and beans are hot- maybe 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes 

It’s gonna be cold here for several days and we will be getting either significant ice and snow or just snow tonight and tomorrow.  
I hope it’s just snow ❄️ 

We will be staying cozy and warm at home and I hope y’all are too 
❤️ Rhonda

Except for the jalapenos, those sound delicious. I cannot eat hot peppers or spices.

Love the mat for your dog. Very cute. Now I'm craving nachos.

It's so like you to make Ducky a pretty place to eat. I'll bet his dish slides about a lot less too which he will appreciate a lot!
I'll vote for just snow with you. We're getting loads of rain. I could go paddle in the puddles but it's too cool for that, lol.

Love the mat for Ducky.
However... that is one special dog if he has a Longaberger basket for his toys. I have to share this with my SIL. We both love Longaberger and she will just gasp when she sees this. Love , ,love love...
Thank you for sharing . Enjoy you so much. Wende from Kansas City.
