Design Wall Monday - November 28, 2022

 Good Morning Quilters!

Thanksgiving week is now behind us, and November is almost over.  On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, we were at our son’s home, and for the first time in many years, I didn’t cook, bake, or prepare anything.  It was very different, but as one friend told me:  You earned it, for all your years of turkey preparation in the past.  It was a wonderful day with family.  We met our new 3 week old Great Grandchild, Bennett, and got to hold him.  He is just perfect, and so tiny.

Yesterday, back at home, I decided to make an apple pie.  I ate a piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgivng, and am now thankful to have a pie here to enjoy all week!   Apple pie is my hubby’s favorite, so I earned points with him too.

The big bag I started last week is now finished, and here is a picture of it,  now holding two crocheting UFOs.   Yes, I have those too.

I like how sturdy the dog food bag lining makes it.  I plan to make more bags.  I plan to sew it together a little differently next time.  But it is nice to recycle the plastic bags.  I did take out my sewing machine needle and saved it to use exclusively for future “bag” projects.  

Here are two pictures of the apple pie.  We each had generous pieces as a treat last night.  Delicious!

What are you working on this week?  I see Bonnie Hunter has started her annual free mystery quilt clues.  I am copying the clues and watching from the sidelines this year.  There are so many UFOs in my quilt room that I want to finish before I do any more BH mystery quilts.  I do enjoy seeing others participating so I hope some of you are joining in.

Please join in the Design Wall Monday Linky Party below, and show us a picture from your quilt room.  Please link back to this blog post from within your post, so people can get here to see the other blogs.  Thanks!  If I could, I would send you all a piece of my apple pie this morning, in gratitude.  I appreciate you.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
