Thanksgiving leftovers

are all gone!! Two days of leftovers that were still yummy (and my favorite meal of the year) have been gobbled up (duh!) and are now just sweet memories...until Christmas day--yeah! It seemed strange not to have any of the kids or grandkids home this year, but we still had seven for dinner. Everyone left with a full stomach and still had leftovers to take home for the next day, so we were all happy. Katie and Patsy Cline both had a few pieces of turkey, so they were satisfied, too.

I haven't been keeping up with the blog much since Patsy came to stay with us. I had to feed her from an eye dropper when she first came, then she graduated to a syringe, and finally to a doll's baby bottle. It was a long process and very time consuming, but so worth-while. She weighed in at .5 ounces a week after Hubby brought her home,
and now is up to 2 pounds.
She eats anything in sight--whether it's good for her or not! Now that she's learned how to climb up on the kitchen stools, her favorite play consists of climbing up on the island and batting the wrapped hard candy out of the candy dish. So far, we've found candy pieces in the bathroom, our bedroom, and even down cellar! Hubby has started calling her "Crazy" after her namesakes' best song.

The Quilt Club Gals have been busy lately working on seasonal and Christmas gifts. Here are a few of their projects.

I am so lucky to have such a talented group to sew with--they are all so inspiring.

Next time I'll show you pictures from Aunt Pitty Pat's 2 Halloween Swaps that I participated in. Until then...

Happy Quilting from Sharon and the TWO Marmalade Cats, Katie and Patsy

LOL, at least the kitties like each other well enough to share the bed :)

Great projects from the sewing group!

I just love a good animal rescue story! God bless you for taking Patsy in. She's so darn cute! I have 7 myself and can't imagine someone leaving any animal out to die like that! anyway...all the quilts are just gorgeous! You and your friends do great work!
