Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day was fun. We followed tradition... mom made the turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pies and I made side dishes - Mac & Cheese, Corn Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, and Cheesy Spinach Casserole. The first three are holiday standards and HAVE to be made every Thanksgiving and Christmas, but the Spinach was a new one this year. Mom and I liked it, but I don't think anyone else even tried it. Oh well - I'll have to find another one to try for Christmas. Guess I'll be flipping through old issues of the Southern Living Christmas books in the next couple of weeks.

Here are pictures of Megan's outfit completed and on her:


I really liked the way the pattern came out! I'll have to make it again. I wasn't thrilled with the way the applique came out though. I loved the test stitch I did, but ran out of my prefered stablizer before I got to the actual top. I know I'm the only one that noticed the little imperfections, but it was still a little dissappointing. And I had my camera on the wrong setting, so the pictures don't show the true colors.

And here's a picture of the whole family together:
