Gentle friends, our Thanksgiving was very quiet with just the family. Our usually large gathering was greatly reduced as most folks just wanted to hunker down and stay home and safe. But, that doesn't mean I was going to set a nice table and Rico was sure to make a super centerpiece... here's a snap...

A little Stitchin and a Little Thanks
... I made a much-reduced menu... roasted turkey breast, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy ( I was really happy that I found my turkey gravy boat guy), sauteed green beans w/almonds, sweet potato souffle, mashed potatoes, herbed sausage stuffing, and poppyseed crescent rolls. For dessert, we had marionberry and pumpkin pies. It was a relaxed dinner and a lovely quiet afternoon. Since the shutdown here in SF I've lost the store that carried the 15" white tapers I like on the table. I found some no-drip ones online and was able to have 18" tapers... I couldn't have been happier!! I got some red ones for Christmas!!
I also got a bit stitched on Christmastide... here's a snap...
... as you can see I've added a cornice just at the roofline. It is charted without one and just didn't look right to me, and architecturally there would have been one...there will only be a little adjusting to a snowflake or two but well worth the effort.
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again. Stay safe!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
