It's Sunday afternoon, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it is time to think about Christmas. I am sitting here on the sofa wrapped in my Christmas blanket, Geeps is building me a nice fire, the rain is falling, and so are the temps. I am watching a recorded Christmas movie while I post.
Our Thanksgiving was small, and relaxing. We have ordered our Thanksgiving meal from Marie Callender's and Polly's the past couple of years. This year, we decided to try Stater Brothers, as we heard it was
very good. We ordered both a turkey meal, and a ham meal. They were both fabulous!! We all thought everything was delicious. I also made a big tray of cornbread dressing. We had to have that! My daughter brought appetizers, and my brother and sister in law brought pies, and Drew's girlfriend brought dessert too. We were sure to eat well. I kept it very simple...and even used paper plates, which I NEVER do!
This morning, I began to gather up all of our Fall decor and prepare to box it up until next year.
I spent all day yesterday putting the borders onto my Christmas quilt. I am thrilled to my toes with how this turned out. This morning, before the skies turned to grey, I put it out on the clothes line to photograph it.
I love every block, but I do have a few favorites. The basket block was fun to do. The original pattern called for an applique heart in the basket. But instead, I put two candy canes, a piece of candy and a heart. I used the blanket stitch on my new machine to stitch them down.
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving! We sure did!
See you soon!
