That's Hot....

Pink, that is.  My daughter-in-law has a pink/black kitchen.  During the holiday season, she has a small, hot pink Christmas tree in her kitchen.  Last week she asked me if I had some fabric (now there's a laugh).  She wanted some pink fabric to wrap around the bottom of her tree to resemble a tree skirt.  I told her if she would give me a few days I would be glad to make her a real tree skirt.  This is the fabric she picked.  The tree skirt is roughly 20 inches in diameter.  I hope she likes her hot pink tree skirt.

Happy Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving dinner for 2010 is now just a memory.  But, those turkey sandwiches are going to taste so good tomorrow.  My niece brought this yummy "turkey" appetizer to the festivities today.  The body of the turkey is actually a dip covered with bacon bits and nuts. 

Today and everyday, my blessings are plentiful.  I try not to take them for granted.  And, I try to remember to share with those less fortunate, because I am so blessed.  My life is a work in progress.

The Big Blue Bear

Jack and I spent part of this week in Denver, CO.  This Blue Bear art statue can be found in downtown Denver.  He appears to be peering into the Denver Convention Center.  The bear is 40 feet high and is made up of 4,000 interlocking triangles.  Now that's one BIG BEAR!

I Am Soooooo Lazy

You're not seeing things.  This is a Valentine's Day pillowcase, actually there is a set of them.  It was on my "to do" list.  I needed to get them done because I have black thread loaded on my serger.  My serger is old, dinosaurish even.  Changing thread on it is challenging, to say the least.  So, there you have it.  I am lazy and won't be changing that thread until all the "to do" projects needing black thread are done.
