I'm a lazy cook, and don't really ever want to go to a lot of trouble to make complicated side dishes, even for our Thanksgiving meal. But I had a bunch of carrots, and when I found this recipe for Roasted Carrots at Food network, I knew we would like it. And, sure enough, they were delicious with our turkey and potatoes!
We had the chance to go see "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," last week, and I really enjoyed it!
It's an interesting combination of the story of Fred Rogers and the story of a journalist whose life was changed when he got an assignment to interview Mr. Rogers for a magazine article.
I've been getting out my Christmas decorations, starting with the quilty things which are always my favorites. I love this tree mini made of hexies!
I blogged about it HERE if you're curious to know more.
It was a fun new-to-me technique that I tried in 2015.

I've been working on a tablerunner for a gift to give at my quilt group's Christmas party next week. I'm not going to show the whole thing until after the party, but I love the serpentine/scallop stitch on my Pfaff that I'm using for quilting! Had to show a close-up.
I've been slowly stitching away on this sweet little design from Gail Pan. I really love the variegated blue thread.
I have to laugh at myself these days because I really love embroidering these sweet designs with really no plans for how I will finish them off! I might just be a bit addicted to the stitching part... :)
And finally, a big thank you to our friend, Michele, of the 3P &N blog! On her other blog, Pennsylvania Piecemaker, she is doing a yearlong series on the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. It has been really interesting and I learn a lot from each of her posts. I asked her for a book recommendation for my book club for next year, and she sent me this title -
It was available from the library, so I am pre-reading it, and will suggest it to my book group next week when we meet for our December discussion.
I'm joining in with "I Like Thursday" at Not Afraid of Color.
