We got so much accomplished in a very short time. We cut, ironed and sewed bunches of parts, mostly half square triangles for a proposed 2 for 1 quilt idea, that is barely fleshed out in my mind, but it may happen. See it here when it does.
Lots of fabrics to work through and not a very clear idea of what we'll need until more of the blocks are made.
We also figured out what we are going to make for our First Family Thankgiving Dinner Together. All caps, you'll notice. We come from a not very close family and are trying to remedy that, even if it only half of us that will attend.
The menu? We decided not to do a big turkey because we are cooking in Brooke's apartment kitchen this year, so we came up with this brainstorm: Turkey Lasagna.
It's not what you think.
WE don't have a recipe but are not letting that stop us. We think: Turkey Cutlets layered with dressing, layered with more cutlets, and dressing and baked. What do you think? Sounds easy and quick and make ahead, kinda.
And after we had lunch on the patio (72 degrees in November!) I had Brooke show me some crochet stuff that I needed to learn.
Picot edging for my knits, and using crochet to start a knit hat. Isn't that cute, so far? The hole lets out the steam, methinks.
I learned to crochet from our dad who learned how to in the TB sanatorium after WWII, imagine that. He taught me all the stuff but not the names of things, so I have not been able to follow a pattern because I didn't know what anything was called. Brooke does and will be giving me a book explaining all. She crochets, doesn't like knitting. O well. To each her own.
Pssst! There's a giveaway on Candy's new website here.
