Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

This month has been such a busy time for me.  My poor blog has been neglected once again because of life.

I’ve had 2 craft shows; one was a big flop while the other was  a touch better.

#1 craft show

 

So I’ve been sewing when I get the chance.

We had Thanksgiving with all family members in attendance. This was our table setting .  The picture was taken by our eldest daughter

This year our son’s birthday fell on Thanksgiving day and our son-in-law’s birthday was the week before.

The following day my hubby and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary.

50th anniversary

Wow, I still have a problem accepting that fact.

I started this post in November and I am finishing it in December, because I just had another craft show over the weekend  and am happy to report it was a success!

Whether they work in brick yards(my dad), or as a utility troubleshooter (hubby), law enforcement(my brother), or a tradesman welder(other brother) and whether you are a man or woman, you all deserve to be honored for working and providing for your families.

May you always be appreciated for all your hard work.♥♥♥♥

This is one of my treasures that I received for Christmas.  Her name is Rosalinda. She plays music. My daughter said the song she plays is very stereotypical, but that’s ok. La Cucaracha is a very familiar song to a lot of us and the song became popular during the Mexican Revolution, so it has relevance.

These guys are ready to go back into hibernation till next year.

My garden looks very sad.  The frost did a good job of damaging my plants. The only ones left standing are my pansies.  They’re bright and cheerful, which gives me hope.

And then, there are all the leaves that need to be raked, but we’ll save them for another day.

So much to do, I don’t know where to begin.

A few years ago I decided to start buying the Target Christmas dinnerware; little did I know that they were going to discontinue the pattern. So all  that I was able to get was 4 salad plates and 4 saucers,  not even 1 cup could I find at any of the Target stores.  Each year I procrastinated about purchasing the pieces until it was too late.  My husband always scolds me when I say, “Oh, I’ll get it later.”, because later becomes never. How many of you have done that?

Well now I have to put them together with my depression glass, which looks ok, but I can’t really use them at Christmas time because there won’t be enough for the 12 of us.  Another lesson learned!

I posted about an apron a while back made with kitchen towels and I’m happy to say I finished sewing it.  I promised myself that I would wear aprons in the kitchen from now on because I have ruined many  of my tops with grease stains. One of my lovely daughters agreed to model the apron.  She looks ready to do my chores.

I had just picked some oranges and lemons, that have been out in this frosty weather, that we’ve had for 5 days.  So hopefully they’re still good enough to enjoy.
