I have the turkey out defrosting, my Mom is baking apple and pumpkin pies and I should do some rolls too. Not sure who will show up for Thanksgiving dinner, our life is kinda up in the air a bit as my second granddaughter is in the hospital again with pneumonia. She has asthma and this contributes to this tendency; I had a dream last night that they had a wonderful new medicine for her. Wishful thinking so in addition to dreams, I am a firm believer in prayers.
Back to cooking. Lila at Indigopears posted about a crazy pumpkin bread that you actually bake and can in jars at the same time. Have you ever heard of such a thing? It sounds wonderful to me as I have two pumpkins just sitting around getting in the way. Wouldn't it be nice to just open a jar of bread!? I will have to try this soon.

The border and sash fabrics are bandana fabrics. I'm in the process of a kitty quilt, a Thomas the Train quilt and a princess quilt for the oldest princess.
A customer stopped by yesterday and we got to talking about Christmas and I told her how our guild does a really nice Christmas challenge each year. If you do the challenge, you end up with a really neat wallhanging for the holiday every year!
This is one of my favorites that I did. It started with a movie and the saying, "don't look a gift horse in the mouth" and then I was doodling and a horse showed up and a snowman and it just continued on.
I always thought the horse would give the snowman his present and then snatch his carrot nose!
Our guild has a Christmas party each year where our challenge quilts are displayed as decoration and then voted on. It makes for a nice addition to our party. This year is different, they are each making a star block and then one winner will be randomly drawn. Just not the same really. I always looked forward to seeing what everyone came up with in their designs plus it was fun to sit amongst all the cheery quilts. I hope this is a onetime thing.
Deer season is upon us in Northern Wisconsin. The orange horde has descended and I have to make sure my dog doesn't leave the yard or even get to close to the woods which is our own but that doesn't seem to make any difference. We live in town by the way so I don't know why hunters come this close. I am not anti-hunting by any means, just too many hunters here thats all.
I have a customer quilt to finish today plus maybe get a little more Christmas presents worked upon, do laundry, scrub a floor, clean the bathroom and vacuum much labrador hair. This is Sunday isn't it?
