Thanksgiving Reprised and Sunday Stash Report

Do you ever have days like this?

I frequently slip my shoes off under the dinner table, under the computer desk, at the kitchen bar, under the edge of the bed.  I'm constantly looking for my shoes.  I'd rather go barefooted, but the tile in the basement gets quite cold this time of year.   One day recently, around 3 p.m., I looked down at my feet.....  You'd think I would have noticed!

I finally got the camera and the computer in the same room so I can reprise our Thanksgiving with Son-2, et al.  First, the brined bird got a good rinse and a pat down.

  The final result -- delicious!

Followed by a family walk in the nature preserve -- invigorating!

Then a friendly competitive game of Ticket to Ride -- I lost .....

Stash Report - Dec 7

I forgot to update my numbers after my shop-local-Saturday trip to Hancock Fabrics and Hobby Lobby.  There were a lot of bolt ends with thirds and such; in all I think it totaled about 16 yards.

     In recently:                    16.0 yards
     Out this Week:                0.0 yards
     In year to Date:            258.5 yards
     Out Year-to-Date:        195.75 yards
     Net Used 2014            -62.75 yards

I'll be going to the S'mores retreat this week where I will finish a couple of things so I hope my final numbers for the year will be slightly better.  I am taking two dinosaur projects with me -- both pink and brown (remember when that was the hot combo?), one top that just needs borders and a back, and the BH mystery -- yes, I caved......

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.

Hope y'all have a great week!


  1. In the past the sale fabric at Hobby Lobby was better priced. They have some really great fabric.

    Enjoy your retreat.

    1. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be consistent across all stores. Ours here have cut back considerably. Nevertheless, I did get some nice stuff at HL in Conway, AR. Hope you have a great week, too. How soon till the move?

  2. i have gone some where and got back and huibby say do your socks match? and they don't

  3. Have fun at retreat. Hope you get caught up on BH mystery. I didn't cave in this time. But I miss starting something new.

  4. I know the days where clothing gets mixed up. A couple of years back I looked at my feet, about 2 hours into the work day, and noticed that I was wearing a different sandal on each foot. The weird thing is they didn't feel any different while I was walking?!
    A week ago I wore a knit dress inside out to work. Thank goodness it is knit and you can't tell the difference, unless you look closely at the seams!
