........Jeff gave me a nearly 20 pound turkey to roast, and I made all the fixin's to go along with it, dressing, peas, real mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, gravy, pies (chocolate and chess), rolls, cranberry sauce (from a can). Jeff brought deviled eggs and a peach cobbler. He came in time to eat with hubby and myself. Then his daughter Mandy came with her boyfriend, and her son and daughter.......she brought baked apple slices. Then, surprise-surprise, my brother, Jim, called and said that he was in town and wanted directions to my place ! So he came over and Jjeff came back and we visited and he ate too.
I got up first thing this morning searching for Black Friday internet sales, specifically Connecting Threads. I ordered a collection of fat-quarters called Rivera II, (it's sold out, but it's the fabrics used in this wallhanging)and checked out. Then I went back and found something else and by the time I called to see if they could add it to the first order, the second thing I picked out was GONE ! I wish I had atleast copied a picture of the quilt in the kit so that I could buy the individual fabrics to make it without the kit ! Oh well, it gave me an idea for a quilt out of some fabric I ordered 2 years ago on Cyber Monday !
Enjoy the rest of this weekend, and be safe if you're on the highway ! Be blessed !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
