Of course, the end of November also means the start of the newest Quiltville Mystery. I made myself promise to finish last year's On Ringo Lake before I started the newest one. Quilting and binding were all that remained.
I decided to do the piped binding so I could finish it quickly on the machine and I am pleased with the way it turned out.
So...on to this year's Good Fortune. As you can see, I am switching up the colors a bit, but they are done and ready for tomorrow's clue.
The last few weeks have been busy with Thanksgiving and enjoying the grandchildren home from college. We always celebrate our Thanksgiving on the Saturday afterwards so the kids can go to in-laws or do their own Thanksgiving on Thursday. Why is the timing of cooking a turkey always such am unknown? DH smokes turkey breasts outside (as that is the favorite here) while I do one turkey in the oven inside. Seems like the inside turkey is always done too early or too late. Anyway, the food and the company were both great. The house was wall to wall tables. I wish I had photographed it, but the day got away from me. We did manage to get most of us in for a drone photo, compliments of our grandson.
This is the time of the year when I'm ready to get back in the kitchen for some serious baking. The smell of homemade bread is intoxicating. My grandmother's egg bread is my favorite, hands down.
I also tried a new recipe from the Cooking Light magazine. It was incredible and I am sure there are very few calories since it came from Cooking Light. It has always been one of my favorite magazines, and unfortunately, it is stopping production.
It's time to add my final month marker to my Temperature Quilt. I will post a picture of it on my next post as the day has been too dark to get a decent picture.
We have another large dinner party next week so it is back to cooking and decorating this week.
