Gobble Gobble!

It's almost T day, time for turkey and family! What is your favorite Thanksgiving Day food? I love it all but I would have to say I adore stuffing.. and gravy!!! I so can't wait! Pictured artwork is from my Grandson Aiden, several years ago, don't you just love it!
My how this past week has flown. Saturday was really special for me. My daughter-in-law to be invited me to her bridal salon appointment to view her search for the perfect dress. How sweet of a moment is this that only happens once, to witness her excitement and the look on her face as she modeled each dress. She looked beautiful in every dress she tried on, but that one, the one magical dress that makes everyone tear up, well you just know that's it and she said yes to her dress! I am thankful for being a part of that day. 

This Thanksgiving we will be spending the afternoon with our new family to be, how nice of them to welcome us to their gathering and feast. I am off the hook with all that cooking, although I know hubby is going to miss those leftovers! I am making an apple pumpkin bundt cake with caramel and pecan icing to take. 
I wish you all safe travels if you are on the road or in the air, and a wonderful Thanksgiving Day...gobble gobble!

Falling leaves

Good morning from Kansas! It is hard to believe here we are 1/2 way through November and enjoying such beautiful weather still. The leaves are mostly gone, as a matter of fact we had a large wind storm last week and it blew most of them away. Here and there a few beauties remain in my neighborhood and I have to sometimes stop and try to capture their magnificent coloring. 

Speaking of color change, my kitchen is finally nearly finished, just in time for the Holidays! We had new counter tops installed, and then Hubby refinished all of the cabinets. No excuses, I guess it is back to cooking for me.

Hubby is glad to be finished, Daisy however is disappointed, she enjoyed helping and found having the cabinet doors off quite fun!

Speaking of Daisy, I released a new cute stitchery pattern called "Naughty Or Nice". With Christmas decorating fast approaching I'm sure you will not need much further information on who inspired this design! Now available on my website and in my Etsy shop.

All my current sewing is on hold for now while I work on a special project with a 
deadline to meet. More down the road on that! Enjoy a wonderful new week!
