Turkey report

Hello again! I'm back. I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. Has everyone had enough turkey and pie? I sure have! It's really hard to maintain a good diet through the Holidays. They only come around once a year and I usually make these goodies, once a year. So the temptation is avoided till now.
Our family had a wonderful meal and the best part was the time spent together. Bridgette and Maximus came to spend the weekend. Yes she only lives 30 minutes away, but that's another story. William and his girlfriend spent most of Wednesday and Thursday with us. In fact, those two helped with the pies. It was a first for Amanda, she had never made a pie crust or even a pie. I made a batch of Cook's Illustrated " vodka pie crust". I think it is one of the best and easiest crusts out there. (Google it, since I can't seem to make my link work.)
I did manage to get my hexy table runner done, just in time to set up before the fixin's got to the table. I had so much fun with these, that I bought another package, this time smaller ones at 1/2 inch. Maybe I'll make a Christmas pillow or again, something small. It's a great way to use up scraps.
I'm going to leave you now, but I'll be back tomorrow.
Everyone take care,

Welcome back, Brandie. Love the tablerunner, I'd love to try the hexies but the thought of a whole quilt is just too daunting. Great job!

Sounds like a fun time Brandie....I knew you would get that table runner finished! Looks to me that it's handquilted and I LOVE it!

Seriously, is it HAND QUILTED?!?? Just gorgeous, I just LOVE it! Glad you had a great holiday - we did, too! It was so nice to see our DIL who is due in January. I have never seen anyone with more of a "glow of pregnancy" than she has!
