How was your Thanksgiving? We had a really nice time, although both of our kids' significant others weren't able to join us, so it was just the four of us for the day--and I cooked enough food to feed at least eight WITH leftovers. So, ever since Thursday, I've been eating mashed potatoes and gravy for breakfast, turkey sandwiches for lunch, and turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn casserole, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and gravy for dinner. Every day. (We had Chinese takeout the night before Thanksgiving, but Hubby snagged THOSE leftovers for himself, darn him!)
At the suggestion of several of you, I bought Apples to Apples and we played it after Thanksgiving dinner--tons of fun! Thanks for the suggestion. In fact, Soccer Son and his Lovely Wife to be Someday came over today (Sunday) for leftovers, and we played the game again because we enjoyed it so much the first time.
I think this is the longest break I've taken from blogging since I started several years ago. It was nice to not have to stop what I was doing to make time to write--even if what I was doing was getting in bed early with a good book!
Mostly, though, I've been working on getting the house decorated for Christmas, and I'm nearly there! Not quite, though. And I still haven't quite finished the Christmas quilt for my bed--but I'm working on the binding, so I'm getting close. In the next couple of days, I'll share a few photos of my decorations and the quilt--when I complete it. In the meantime, I have a little something for you tonight.
After nearly completing the Christmas quilt and sorting through the leftovers (fabric, not turkey!) to make sure I have what I need to make a few other things for my bedroom, I found I have a panel and some scraps I don't need.
The panel and scraps are from Kate Spain's 2010 Christmas line, the 12 Days of Christmas.
I'd guess there are enough scraps here to make a tabletopper or small wallhanging, plus the panel. Are you interested in adopting my leftovers? (Again, fabric, not turkey!)
I need to limit this giveaway to those of you in the US or with a US mailing address because of the cost of mailing and the amount of time it would take to reach someone outside the US. Also, I'm going to keep this short so I can get it out to the winner quickly, in time to do something with it by Christmas.
What do you need to do? Just tell me what you think you'd do with the panel and scraps if you won. I'll pick a winner Monday night and announce the winner on Tuesday's blog post. Please come back on Tuesday to see if you won, because I'd like to get the winner's mailing address and get the packet mailed before the end of the week.
It's nice to be back in Blogland and visit with you again, and I hope your holiday weekend was the best!
