I've not had much time for blogging the last few days and the little bit of sewing I have done is top secret, so I can't share it just yet...but I thought I'd pop in and share the fabrics I'm using for Bonnie Hunter's upcoming mystery! I'm switching up the colors from her choices, but I vowed to use fabrics from my stash and surprise, surprise, look at what I picked! Those that know me well won't be surprised. LOL
I love them! Actually, I could use a few more blues and reds thrown in there, so I might splurge and pick up a few more as the weeks go on. Now to decide which colors to switch out with Bonnie's colors, you know? I wish I knew which, if any, of her colors will be more dominate...but I guess that's why they call it a mystery! :)
We've been busy with Thanksgiving festivities on base, I made a turkey last week that was delish! I had a bit leftover, so I made a turkey gumbo that was even better! :) This week, I put out all our Christmas decorations. It's a bit early, but with our son coming home for Thanksgiving and then holiday parties starting the next week, including a large open house we're hosting, now was the best time to get it done and out of the way. Thanksgiving falls a little later this year, so really there is less time before Christmas arrives! I hate to feel the pressure of all the preparations, so I'm happy to have that out of the way and hopefully it's one small step towards less stress!! So, since these signs are so popular...I found this one extra special. :)
I'm so thankful for my family and friends...including my blogging friends. I get so much inspiration from all of you and look forward to "seeing" what's happening in your lives and what you're working on. My wish for you is a very Happy Thanksgiving spent with friends and loved ones!
