We spent Thanksgiving Day at my sister's and had a nice time. I only managed to snap a photo or two early on and then put my camera back in my purse and forgot about it.
I liked her display on top of the quilt rack, some vintage kitchen items she picked up at the flea market we went to in September. Looks like there's even some room for future finds.
Have you seen the Handmade with Love holiday tutorial contest at Pink Chalk Fabrics? There are a lot of fun projects being linked. I explored several of them the other day and decided to make one as a Christmas gift. I worked on it Wednesday night while I listened to the rest of the Water for Elephants audiobook. Hours passed as I sewed contently along. Norm was running the soundboard for my brother's band at a local gig, so it was just blissful me time.
I finished that little project today but can't post a photo here because it is a gift. However, I did upload it to a Flickr group for the person whose tutorial I used, so you can see it HERE. I've asked the recipient not to peek—and if she does, I don't want to know!
Last weekend, we saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn, and I loved it. I wished it could have been different in some parts, but overall I was happy with it. But it puzzles me (disturbs may be a better word) when people bring their very young children (5, 6, 7-year-olds) to a PG-13 movie such as this. Several groups with young children filed in. Seriously? Was Happy Feet sold out?
Friends, you may be relieved to know that I had a brand new Twilight New Moon board game in my hands today at Goodwill, but I put it back. See? I can control my obsession. It was tough, though. I walked around cradling it for about 15 minutes before I set it back down. I hope the lucky person who buys it appreciates my sacrifice.
This, however, made me laugh uncontrollably. We got the holiday ThinkGeek catalog in the mail today. Be sure to read the item description...er, instructions.
It had me in hysterics, I tell ya!
There's a lot of fun stuff in that catalog. Like this T-shirt:
