Frugal Friday With Marsha --Hope You Had a Nice Thanksgiving

I do hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and got to spend the day with loved ones and friends.
I feel very blessed that we were able to work around work schedules and get everyone there.  Well, everyone but 3 of the grandchildren. 

My middle daughter and her husband work at a smoke house, so they have taken care of the turkey and ham the past few years.  She also made the pies as well as homemade rolls.
I do feel bad that they provided so much of the food as well as hosting at their house.

Her step-son made the green bean casserole.  My husband and I provided the potatoes and gravy.   My middle daughter provided the cranberry sauce and stuffing.  My son and his fiance provided the candied yams.  And, my mom made her "famous" applesauce jello. 

I took a few pictures.  They aren't the best, but I am sharing them with you this week anyway.

Lots to be Thankful for each and every day.  This is something that we all need to remember every day, not just on Thanksgiving Day.

Blessings to all!

WIP Wednesday -- A Start

I have a nice start to the covered composition notebooks that I am making for Christmas gifts.  9 out of 35 done.  I don't think that I need 35 for Christmas, but what I don't use for Christmas I will donate to my quilt guild to put in our boutique at the 2018 quilt show in Wichita.

In my process of cleaning up around my desk I've been bagging up projects.  I got most of them into a box and into my sewing room, but rug strips didn't make it into a bag.  They were calling my name sitting in a pile on my desk.  I just couldn't help myself but to start a new toothbrush rug.

Of course the rug is put to the side for now in a project box.  I may or may not work on it again for awhile.  I need to finish the notebook covers.  I made 2 more of the double towel scarves with Christmas towels and a lady has already bought those and wants 2 more for Christmas.  Plus, I have 2 orders of the crocheted netting dish scrubbies to get made as well.  Busy busy crafting and sewing is what I need to be.

I link up with the following blogs:
