We naturally take stock in the year and try to tie up loose ends… entering 2022 with a clean and organized home is important to us to cleaning and organizing is included! lol
While cleaning and organizing my sewing room for Thanksgiving guests coming and just because … I opened the box including this quilt center measuring 64 x 86″ made by my bestie Connie and gifted to me to finish…. This has been the impetus for all the different sewing projects I have done… THIS quilt top will be next on the quilt frame too!
Our Thanksgiving Day feast was delicious… my honey cooked the turkey…
I took the group selfie and made deviled eggs 😀
Ruthie… my honey’s sister … did all the rest of the cooking and it was fabulous! Dressing, gravy, potato salad, plus a coconut custard pie that took my Mrs Calander’s heated pecan pie out of the race completely!
Not only can my honey cook a juicy turkey … he can carve and debone one too!
I cleaned my sewing room and straightened it all up ….
I had some fabric I was trying out on the ironing board…. Connie challenged me in a way to come up with a way to use this fabric just wider than the widest part of the ironing board…..
I cut the fabric subsequently about 2″ away from the board itself which also has layers of batting between the cover and the metal board….
I love it…. oh I did also make some scrubbing rags for my kids to match their decor and made the wallet for my daughter but it has some issues! So I will remake the wallet with my daughter in an upcoming visit 🙂
Molly is festive for Thanksgiving with her new bandana on 🙂
Our fave neighbor Jack and his wife Theresa brought us the wreath… it immediately found a home to welcome all who enter ❤
Here is a close up of the wreath!
I finished the hand quilting and then the machine done binding the day before Thanksgiving!!! I was sooo excited!
with that done… I was able to cross hatch all the way across…
