I had some leftover material and made my Mom a couple of hot-pads to include in her box. Cheap gift, I know, but I would love to have some (I NEED some) and I couldn't stand to waste the materials.
I have put the machine away!!! Yea!! I need a break! I fixed Thanksgiving dinner and wish we would have put the forks down long enough to take photos! We had a 20# turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, broccoli casserole, cranberry salad, yeast rolls with butter, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, fresh apple cake with vanilla sauce and my DD brought a Tiramisu! WHEW! Was a wonderful dinner. My son and DIL stopped by later with the grandkids, as it was their year to have dinner with my DIL's parents.
Now we are working on getting the house decorated for Christmas. THEN we can take a deep breath and start enjoying the Christmas season! Busy, busy this year (every year)!
Wonderful things this week: *Quilt is finished!
*Joe Joe's cookies from our new Trader Joe's (OMGOODNESS!!)
* Encouraging Urologist appt. for DH (prostate cancer)
*Found some great deals for Christmas gifts at after Thanksgiving
