Thanksgiving Day at our house. Story goes that my mom's mom got her finger caught in the blender while making mashed potatoes one evening. Its still attached but we always tease whenever we get the mixers out. My dad is the official turkey carver of the family. Mom was quick enough to put the apron on him while he was elbow deep in turkey. It was all delicious and lovely.
We took a trip this weekend to see our dear friends in Pasadena to celebrate the birth of their daughter, baby A. She is precious and looks a lot like her brother did when he was born. Sebastian followed J around the apt. and watched his every move. J was nice enough to share his toys and his snacks. I had forgotten how delicate and miniature newborn babes are and just kept looking at her tiny fingers and little button nose while she slept. We had a great time catching up and comparing delivery stories, discussing movies and eating good food together. It was the kind of visit that goes by too quickly and leaves you wanting to do it again very soon.
The need to make quilts has been overwhelming this week. Its that same desperate feeling I got when I was prego with Sebastian and needed to nest. I've been collecting and organizing fabrics for a few specific quilts and another large project involving beautiful curtains that need an equally beautiful lining. These curtains have been the project that is always on my mind but never in the works because it was never completely right in my imagination. I've finally got it figured out and hope to finish most of them by the end of the week. You'll have to visit another blog to see the finished product but all is under wraps for now.
He's a big fan of helping.
So, back to work. The December kit is up for pre-order and I just received our add-ons in the mail today. They are custom made for RVKC and perfectly lovely. Those won't be available until Dec. 1st so check back. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend.
