Yes, I'm very glad I started this thread!  It's so much fun to hear about all the projects being worked on.  I hope everyone will continue to post frequently.

6 large blocks.  The center section is all sewn together now, I just need to applique the corner stones for the outside edges, then sew them and the outside sashing to the center - getting close!.  I won't be able to use my sewing machine much this weekend as my sewing room is also the guest room.  So I will have some time while visiting to do hand work.  The my cousin who is coming is also a sewer and we sit and visit and sew.  Maybe I'll be posting an updated  picture in few days.

my son once asked me who was coming to visit as I was vacuuming.  I was very offended, I don't only vacuum before company, I do it other times too!

boneless, cooked turkey breast at Costco

I really love those! I even brought them to the big get-togethers we used to have at my Sis's..so much easier than actually COOKING a full turkey and DH and I really only like the breast meat anyway!

One is residing in my fridge for Turkey Day...probably will be very subdued this year..nobody has a place big enough to host the large (and getting larger) crowd anymore..

Yes!  Those roasts are tender and delicious and soooo much easier than cooking a whole turkey.  The only drawback is that there's no carcass for soup.

Sorry to hear that your cold will interfere with your Thanksgiving celebration.  Glad you can have turkey anyway.  We will be at our son's.  They always do Thanksgiving and I do Christmas.  It will be smaller this year because my DMIL can't come out of her assisted living.  She is in hospice care.  Also my DSIL has moved back to Michigan.

At my house walways joke that we need a four legged turkey. We are invited to someone's house this year and I need to bring a side dish. I am making ratatouille. I have made it twice now. It is beautiful and everyone seems to like it.

Christmas we will be going to New Mexico.

The charity quilt is quilted and trimmed.  I found a fabric I like for the binding but need to make sure there's enough.  It will be finished tomorrow!

Cathy, Ellen and Lynne, thanks for the nice comments.  Now that my carpets are clean and dry,  I'll be able to get into my sewing/dining room today.

The charity quilt is finished.  I just have to wait for DH to help with the photo.  In the meantime, here is a photo of some burp cloths I made for my future DGS.  They are machine embroidered with fabric edging.  I want to give them to DD and DSIL when they come to visit in two weeks.
