Oh How I've Missed You

Something happened, I just lost a few weeks and it's barely December. It all started with a stomach virus (my husband and daughter) right after Thanksgiving and then just one thing after another. I tell you about this not as an excuse but just that I really miss blogging when I get pulled away! It's funny that sharing on my little blog is such a part of my life now that I feel sad when I don't get to. It's not just writing but also keeping up with what everyone else is doing that I miss. So hello everyone I'm back for some holiday sewing and blogging. There are swaps, teacher gifts, charity quilts, and all the other holiday activities to enjoy. I almost missed Giveaway Day so that's later today!


Just to get the ball rolling I have to go back in time to Thanksgiving. I won turkey and it was not from a new line of fabric. A local Portland blogger, Sara from the blog Go Gingham Stylishly Frugal Living gave away a Heritage Breed turkey sponsored by Whole Foods. 

We had a little side by side comparison with my Dad's turkey and they were both good (my husband thought mine was better) but I noticed the Heritage turkey had a nice gamey flavor that I liked. 


So now on to December! 
Happy Holidays Everyone
