Today you meet my super good friends Barb (above) and Mary of Me & My Sister. They are an amazing design team.. and yes.. they ARE sisters! I had the great pleasure of traveling to South Africa with them to teach, it was an awesome time. They are Moda fabric designers and this is their booth in October. Since their fabric line didn't have any fall colors, they decorated with ful size mummies and black accents... totally fun! Which really speaks to their personality!
They blog HERE and they are VERY funny... you need to follow them!
I asked them a few questions so you get to know them a bit better...
Favorite holiday food …
My Mom used to make these for us as far back as I can remember. We always called them “gobs” but today they are known as whoopie pies. She always made a double batch of the yummy butter cream filling and stuffed them twice as full. This is a very time consuming dessert to make and since she has gotten older, she does not bake as much as she used to … so the tradition has been picked up and carried on by Mary. I sure hope I get my holiday supply in the mail soon! (That’s a BIG hint Mary!)
(see they REALLY DID say Whoopie Pies!)
Favorite holiday drink
I like to make it with real whole milk and Hershey’s chocolate syrup. I also do a really strange thing with my hot chocolate. I love to dip buttered bread (has to be white bread) into the chocolatey bliss. If you have the correct proportion of butter it actually melts in the milk when you dip and makes tiny butter bubbles that float on the top. Heavenly comfort food!

That’s me on the far left. Our sister Terry is on the far right and Mary is sitting on Santa’s lap sticking out her tongue. We all have on the same coat and hats. I still remember those old wool coats with the matching scarves. Who could have guessed from this picture that we would all end up quilters!
