design wall monday 11-23-09

My design wall this morning shows my current BOM from a local quilt shop, the center panel for a quilt from this book. I know it doesn't look much different, but all the blanket stitching is now finished. Then there is my quilt guilds BOM (which I am so not finishing out the year so I guess these will be orphan blocks now) and a hand stitchery that just needs some more stitching....

This will be a busy week. Here in the states Thursday is Thanksgiving. Like many of you, I have company coming so I have today to clean, tomorrow to get my haircut, grocery shopping and start cooking on Wednesday..

Our menu -

Turkey Breast
Prime Rib
Baked Potatoes (sweet potato for me)
fried corn
some kind of green veggie (any ideas?)
and dessert is coming with company...

And here is an updated photo of hubby's design wall. He is finishing up the drawers, he made the mirror frame yesterday and we bought all the hardware.

Love your center panel. I haven't seen that book before. Look like it's a must-have. Also looks like you are going to have a busy and tastey Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

Nancy, How about a broccoli apple salad. It is very good and has green (broccoli).
broccoli salad
1 head fresh broccoli; use just the head broke up in small pieces
1/2 c chopped pecans
1/2 c raisins
1 chopped red apple
1/2 chopped purple onion
12 slices bacon crumbled
1c mayonnaise
1tablespoon apple cider
1/2 c sugar
mix dressing and refrigerate overnight. Mix salad ingredients except bacon. Pour dressing over top of salad ingredients right before serving top with bacon.

I use the package of real bacon pieces that you can buy at the grocery store. This always goes over well and there are no leftovers.
If you try it I hope you enjoy it.

Yum, prime rib and turkey breast. Who needs anything more ;-) Could you add a salad?

Margie said...

OK Nancy, I may be from a very small town, but just what is fried corn?? I only need to make a salad and bake a couple of pies this year for a change. Don't quite know how to handle not having to cook a full meal, but will miss the left overs. Take Care and have a good Turkey Day!!!

Time that birdie panel became a Quilt don't you think? Forget the cleaning and do some quilting

Miss Nancy said...

Your design wall is a busy place. I can't wait to see that little tweet de bird in it home. Have a great Thanksgiving.
