Happy Day After Thanksgiving..well yesterday went off without a hitch..although I was in the kitchen for about 5 hours cooking..it was worth the wait..although before I started all this..I hit the treadmill for a 40 minute workout cause I knew I would gain because of this yummy dinner..and I did a pound..so hitting it again today or taking Tucky for a walk..so far the weather is looking decent today..it has rained nonstop for 3 days straight with tiny little breaks in between..it is just so damp here..getting tired of the rain I must say..as you can see we tried Granny trace scraps and squares..it looked so good we just had to try it..) and I will tell you this is a keeper..I think this will be apart of our thanksgiving every year..the bacon is soooo good on it.I haven't had real bacon since January..we only buy turkey bacon..but you need the real stuff for this recipe..hubby and our friend who came said it was the moistest turkey ever..and so was the white meat.;)Thank you Trace for this wonderful recipe.;)
that was my plate..big turkey wing and the bum (I love the bum) roasted veggies, cranberry (crazins) turkey stuffing using real toasted bread, my sweet potato casserole our friend loved this as much as I do..its like eating dessert..I tell you your family will love this one, and garlic parmesan smashed potatoes..it was a delicious tasty dinner...sent the friend home with leftovers..and we still have plenty of our own..so tonight we are having turkey salads..(its low carb day)..and I will put crazins on the salad versus raisins..should be tasty..;) I hope you all had a great thanksgiving..we had pumpkin pie for dessert and watched the charlie brown thanksgiving..it just wouldn't be thanksgiving without it.;)
my little christmas tree in a firkin..I read that someone had put their tree in on and the light bulb went on..so I grabbed one of Linda's wonderful firkins that she swapped with me and look how wonderful it looks on my counter.;)
love the twinkly lights..adds a nice glow in the kitchen at night..I will be doing my christmas decorating after my show next friday -sunday..so the week of the 5th is when I will decorate..right now cramming for my show and I have a long doctors appt on monday..so gotta take lots of handstitching to keep me occupied..and gonna be sewing all day and when I can squeeze it in as thursday next week I set up my booth..
this was our first frost on the 18th..so that wheelbarrow and the wagons have been put away for the winter..I had my mums in there when it frosted over..
last tuesday after my blood draw I went to Joanns and got more fleece for my scarves that I am making..I love the light turquoise and that green..you will see below what the scarves will look like..I am so making me one and you will see it as well..
got some buttons..stars and gingerbread men..for projects I am hoping to get done..
tissue paper for my show..along with safety pins for the price tags and pins cause I am running out with all the projects I have in the works..I need an extra set of hands..
then I stopped by JC Penneys for fur covered boots..they were regularly 89.00 on sale for 62.00 and then I got 15.00 more off..they are so cute on with a pair of jeans..
you've all heard of the honeymooners...well these little stinkers are the "honeyspooners"..little brother loves to spoon his sissy..couldn't resist this pic..
this was taken last night on the couch..they were all snuggled on their sheepskin..and little Stewie was doing the lick/bite on his sissy lucy..
finally all settled in for a long winters nap..;) precious aren't they..we certainly think so..
I made this coffee cozy for a gal that purchased one of my dolls..she and her mom love kittys..so it was fitting that she have one..
these are done with the exception of the velcro to keep them closed..I have about 21 more to make..I love the little simple coffee designs..these were a nice little seller at my shows..make great stocking stuffers...
and I am making snowmen, pies, snowflakes, santas, stockings gingerbread men..using my sizzix..I love this thing..I am almost done with the snowman..have to put the pom poms on two of them..I love my sizzix..
here are the scarves I told you about..need to do all of these..the one on the left the blue one is mine..I love the colors..again using my sizzix..
almost forgot this one..
almost finished with this mantel/shelf scarf..gotta finish "a snowman" and do the blanket stitch around the edging then its done..
last but not least..making Santa and Elmer doll..the two other reindeer will be extras to purchase seperately..then onto another doll..I got my work cut out for me..between now and thursday..I hope you all have a great weekend..I know alot of you all did your "black friday" shopping..never been and never will..don't like the crowds and they get mean..I may not be around much this upcoming week due to my show..I may post after I set up to say hi..take care everyone.;)
