Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

yooo whooo I'm back

Been a crazy couple of weeks. Had a night trip to Chicago and then home a night to leave again for a week working in Switzerland. Came home to a week of Thanksgiving goodness. I've been busy so to speak.

I made the full turkey dinner from scratch (minus some rolls outta a box) with all the trimmings.

Then I went into full craft mode. Just before I left, I made this armrest pin cushion. It has become my most favorite sewing tool. I do a lot of hand finishing and stitching at night while watching TV and many of morning woke up to an armrest peppered with pens. Now they are in the pin cushion! It handy little pockets to stow my snips in or a pattern.

I've also made 4 Christmas stockings, 4 ornaments, 20 gift tags for a swap I'm doing with Karen and Regena! ( plus Carolyn and Mark). Plus a few kitchen towels and 2 sets of pot holders.

Now I need to sew up 6 aprons before Christmas and my sewing is all done!
