A happy weekend


 A busy, happy, family weekend around here. We've been having an great time with my husband's family in town from Maryland.  My mother-in-law made 9 pies! YUM. And my husband's brined turkey was a home run. Oh my goodness. I am officially declaring him responsible for Thanksgiving turkey for the rest of his life.
I've also been working on my project. I'll have it ready to share on Monday.

Also, many thanks to We All Sew for their DofaQuilter shoutout this week. Have you visited WeAllSew.com? A great sewing resource sponsored by Bernina. My machine is a 30+ year-old Bernina and I LOVE it. Totally no-frills, but a heavy-duty work horse. We're a good pair.

  5. 9 PIES!!! That is phenomenal! They look fantastic too. My hips and thighs would not have liked it too much though.

  8. Even though I am stuffed I am drooling....drooling for the pies and drooling for your felty project!:)

    Got the fabric...you are too generous!! I want to start on it now but alas I had to put it all away so I couldn't see the fabric staring at me!!!

    So...how much snow did you get?

  12. I made 5 pies but mine didn't look like hers. And I'm not a great pie maker. But this time mine were better than the past. I wish my MIL could cook!
