No Bake Chocolate Protein Balls
· 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons peanut butter
· 1/4 cup maple syrup
· 2 teaspoons water
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· 2/3 cup almond flour
· 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
· 6 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
Mix well and roll into small balls. Can refrigerate or freeze
You can add flax seed to make it healthier. I also added slivered almonds that I had toasted.
Use Almond Butter in place of Peanut Butter if dealing with peanut allergies.

Larry Reed stopped by, looking for a flannel coordinate. He brought these quilt tops to show. Larry said he likes to keep busy when the cold air keeps him inside.
|Larry created this lay out to make a heart in the center. Focus on the green squares to see the heart. This is for grandchild #9!|
|As you may notice, he has quite a collection of tractor and barn fabrics.|
Thanks for sharing, Larry!

Introducing a new series of "Littles". These 12" quilts can hang from a 12" counter stand or occupy a small space on a wall or door. Great for decorating cubicles or nursing home rooms. All are available in kit, of course.

Quilt Circle Holiday Party was this week. We always wait until January to avoid the conflicts of the busy season in December. This group knows how to party!
Of course we started with a great potluck.
Then we gathered in our circle.
Show and Tell at this gathering focused in part on our Get Er Done projects and our License Plate Challenge projects.
Get Er Done is a project we do every year. It's a commitment from members to finish at least one quilt in their line up of projects.
A few months ago, I gave everyone in group a cloth license plate and challenged them to create something with it.
|Here's Kathy's challenge project, made with pet screen.|
|And her Get Er Done quilt.|
|Kathy also shared the first in a series of table runners she is making as thank-you gifts.|
|Nancy H is holding these little bags made by Jackie O. The fuzzy pic is my fault but wanted to share anyway. These are candy packages, reinforced with fusible vinyl, quilted and then stitched with a zipper closure.|
|Trish's Get Er Done.|
|Deb's donation quilt.|
|Stack of Kathy's donation quilts and crib sheets. Donation quilts an crib sheets are going to the Mercy PICU.|
|Celia's challenge project.|
|Jackie O's challenge project, a glasses case.|
|Marti's Get Er Done Quilt. 1,996 half square triangle units. Or as Celia said, "I'd round that up!"|
|This is Marti's challenge quilt from the Des Moines Guild. The challenge was to use at least a dozen eggs in the design.|
|Margaret's Get Er Done Quilt.|
|Bonnie made this beauty for her grandsons friend.|
|And this is Bonnie's challenge project.|

Then we closed with what I believe to be our favorite part of the evening, the sock exchange.
|My favorite was the pair Joyce received, Chicken Leg Socks.|
|And here they all are. Another fun, fun evening with my Quilt Circle of Friends.|
