|Pheasant is pleasant|
We enjoyed two Thanksgiving dinners. The first was on Thursday with our friends Erika and Nick (and their daughter, sister, and brother-in-law). My contribution to the feast was Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish . It is as an auditory as well as a culinary tradition as I listen to the recipe presented on NPR's Morning Edition the Friday before Thanksgiving. The second was on Saturday with my sister Valerie, brother-in-law Rod, and niece Amelia. They served roast pheasant (which V&R hunted). I brought curried parsnips, an easy and delicious recipe from the Joy of Cooking. (Parsnips, onion, curry, milk, sour cream.)
AAUW colors, which is how she and I met.
Victoria at Park Hill Farm wrote that she was making plaid blocks for Beth at Love Laugh Quilt . Plaids? I have some of those! The dozen blocks I made for Beth used just over a yard. Now I want to make a whole bunch for myself. I do love those homespuns.
Last week I was undecided about joining the crowd for Grand Illusion. I made up my mind -- I'm in! I decided to start with half the number of blocks. (Bonnie said that's okay.) Here is the result.
|I did get this cleaned up|
And the November wrap-up:
Fabric acquired in November: NONE!
Fabric used in November: 58-3/4 yards!
I'm linking up with other quiltmakers at Judy's Patchwork Times and Quiltville's Mystery Monday .
P.S. I reached an automotive milestone on Saturday and managed to photograph it. The CRV is still running well after 11 years and 11 months.
