November FMQ Challenge

November's practice.  I personally don't see any improvement except that I'm not as stiff in the shoulders....giggle.
This just ain't my bag, but I will persevere.  It looked better before I took a picture of it.  I'm sure it's not me just distortion from the camera.
I like that story and I'm sticking to it!

Thanksgiving at Our House!

Big Mickie's plate.
You know how he likes to take pictures of his food......grin
My daughter Shelley cooking the sides.
Me??  I prepped for the dressing the night before, cooked the cornbread, and made the gravy.  Then I did the most important thing.  I took it easy and ate all the good food.
Big Mick made the turkey and dressing.
We had a lovely visit with my daughter, my niece Charlene and her family, and Mom.  Mom looked so pretty in her new jogging suit.
Hopefully more pictures to come later from my daughter camera.
The only sad note was my Son Brett's kids were all sick, and they had to cancel....:((((
We missed the hot sauce eating contest between Mick and Charlotte.  Each pretending it's not hot until Big Mick gets the hiccups....giggle. 
Isla missing her cousins.  Yep she's face timing them.
Lucky (grand dog) making up with Big Mickie.....too sweet.

It was a clean off to see who could do the better job.  Mick used Windex and Shelley used Mr. Clean Eraser......giggle. 
Each claimed to be the winner, but I declared it a tie!

And last but not least my daughter made me a Christmas Tree!
Sooo cute!

How Far Will You Go QAL??

Block 9
Only 9 more blocks to go.....giggle.  I'm a little behind.
I was going to take a small break, but then my knee decided it didn't like me anymore.  I was being very kind to it, but it was still hurting.  I decided to sew anyway.
I think I actually got all the fabrics in the correct place this time, and I'm pleased with my block.
