It's been quiet on the blog the last few days, but it hasn't been quiet around here. We celebrated our thanksgiving on Sunday, which always involves a lot of preparation, but it is so very worth it. The last few years, we've started doing the main part of the cooking the day before, so we cooked up our turkey on Saturday, as well as doing up the pies for dessert that day, as well. This time of year is one of the many times I'm so grateful for our living arrangements. Doing the turkey and the pies on the same day was only possible, because we live in a home with two fully functioning kitchens. And then on Sunday, again it was fabulous to have the second kitchen available when there weren't enough burners available on just one stove. We all five of us worked together, and had a great time doing it. I love having four out of five family members all under the same roof. And Noel is close enough now, that he can easily come and visit. Bad blogger that I am, I took no pictures. In between cooking and during visiting, I did get some hand stitching done, though. I'm continuing to work on my Patchwork of the Crosses pieces. One is now finished,
Yesterday was spent putting the binding and hanging sleeve on my Camp Out quilt. I can't get a decent picture of it, since it is pouring down rain outside, and there isn't enough space in here to spread it out. It will be hanging at the quilt show, so maybe I can get a picture of it hanging there. Then the rest of yesterday was spent knitting and finishing watching the Harry Potter marathon that was on all weekend.
Today, I've loaded on a quilt of Charlene's that's been in my studio, waiting for months, literally. She didn't need it for the quilt show, so it got set aside to age a while longer. Plus, it took me a while to figure out what I was going to do with it. Now that it's loaded, it's talking to me.
