A Little Stitchin' and a Little Dinner

 Gentle Friends, I took off Wednesday and Monday for the Thanksgiving weekend... in between cooking and getting the house ready I've been able to get a little more done on MCEV... here's a snap...

... I just took this quick snap with it still in the Qsnaps... I'm thinking about changing up the roofline, but I still have some time... and here's a snap of us as we sat down to Thanksgiving...

.. our dining room is too small for all of us so I popped up a card table, slapped on a linen cloth et voila enough room...Rico whipped up a lovely centerpiece and I scaled back the menu a bit... turkey breast, crock-pot stuffing ( the real winner and I'll never make it any other way!!), steamed green beans, mashed white potatoes, sweet potato souffle with pecan topping,  roasted Brussell sprouts, homemade cranberry sauce, apple butter our friend Rob put up this Fall for my buttermilk biscuits and a dish of watermelon rind pickle.  We started off the afternoon with Kir Royale for everyone... at dinner, we popped both a red and white wine ... AND we sat down at 2:05 pm... only 5 minutes past when I said we would.  Usually, I'm so backed up I'm lucky if we sit down by 3.....  but I had prepped the hell out of everything so it was probably the smoothest and least stressed Thanksgiving ever...!  My sister and brother-in-law came down from Vancouver WA and brought a delicious Marion Berry Pie, and I had made a spiced dark chocolate cake for Mike's birthday.  There was very little leftover so I am very happy about that and everyone had a super time!!  Now on to Christmas Dinner.... we're thinking Brisket this year.......

A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends,  stitching away on MCEV and getting ready for Thanksgiving.... here's a shot...


... I wasn't sure about the non-traditional Christmas colors, but as I get more into the piece I'm really liking the color choices and it's one of the reasons I love the Blackbird Designs.

A Little Boost and a Rib

 Gentle Friends, we headed out to get our Covid Booster Shots this morning.  I had made appointments for us at the same place we had gotten our first 2 shots ... in the Mission at 24th and Capp Streets.  Since they are just around the corner from the Mission McDonlads' we headed over there after we got shots for a reward...


... I had to get the McRib and Rico got a Quater Pounder meal.  As usual, it was delicious and I totally enjoyed every bite!  I'm really happy to have gotten the Booster shot,  now we need to get the flu shot for this year and we're covered ... hopefully!

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I stitched up as much of Fruits as I can until the last section shows up...  here's a snap...


... I also got the border done on MCEV...  here's that snap...


... both shots are on the dark side, but you get the idea.  That stick thing in the vase is going to be some sort of tree...

A Little Blue Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I picked up on November's section of Fruits...here's a snap...


.. I also made a start on the December section.  Since the dark-blue outline mirrors Octobers it was an easy jump...I'll get in the last bottom triangle and the corner piece before I start in on the lite blue areas...
