I had a nice weekend.My hubby started working on our bathroom and trying to finish up our deck.He is working so hard.Hope to have pictures of that soon!For all his hard work I made a big dinner Sunday.I was able to get some squash and mustard greens out of our garden to cook for dinner.I made baked chicken,greens, onion and squash, mac and cheese and peach cobbler.The family enjoyed that meal.


My first Christmas gift done.I made this scarf and hat for my girlfriend dd who will be going to the North Park University Chicago for nursing.Her favorite color is red,so I used red sprinkles wool ease worsted weight.The scarf is 3" wide and 66" long.I hope she will like it.




This weekend I cut out a McCall's 5310 for my dd.She picked out the fabric for this outfit herself.She can't wait for me to finish it.



Hope everyone have aWebfetti.com

great and lovely day!!!

Nothing like fresh vegetables grown from the garden. I had my first taste of home grown Squash recently and I use to hate Squash but not anymore.

The hat and scarf look really nice, I love the color.

That dinner sounds delicious! I am in the South, and my mom cooks just like that! When they had a garden, everything was so fresh and delicious!

I thought I had a big back yard but yours is huge...what I would give to have a vegetable garden...that would be fantastic...I might have to think about this! Seriously!
