How Thankdsgiving went from 2 to 7

the food

The kids in Greg's man cave watching the football game.

This year was going to be our first major holiday alone. Happily it wasn't. We received a call Wednesday night from Greg's son (S)that he, his older brother(J), their nephew (I) and a friend (P) were coming for dinner. So the kids came and joined us for dinner and some games of cards.

#7 was/is our neighbor the bachelor whom we take a dinner plate over for every holiday.

We wwere thankful for the food and for the company.

Blessings, Laura

Joann's shopping fun

This past Sunday between church and work, Patti and I stopped at Joann Fabriv for a quick trip during their sale.
This piece of fabric is intended for the backside of the potholders I am making as Christmas gifts. Fittingly so its name is Stars and Strips.

These two pieces will be a tank top for next summer (the green flower print) and Snoopy will be a sleep shirt.

The patterns wee a very special find. I went over just to look at one for the amount of fabric that I would need, pull it out of the drawer, make my notes and was about to return it to the drawer. Then I saw it, the sign Simplicity patterns (with some exclusions) were 5 for $5. So these two patterns valued at $15.95 each cost me $2.

Very happy shopper who make return before the sale ends for more patterns.

Thank you for reading and blessings, Laura
