My own lovely Goodie Bag!
It has been kind of quiet around the blog this week since it was Thanksgiving, but trust me, we were plenty busy in real life.
We had about 10 people over for dinner on Thursday including some lovely out-of-town guests (one from as far away as California! Aren't we lucky?!). We had a lovely meal with too much food as normal but we've been making short work of the leftovers (pie for breakfast? Absolutely!).
Almost no Black Friday shopping for me except for a quick stop by the fabric shop - what can I say, they had great coupons! The other thing going on at our house right now is teething, great big back molars, so we have a very sad/grumpy two year old and staying home seems like the best plan. So that's what we've mostly been doing.
I did get some VERY fun mail yesterday - my Goodie Bag came!! Corrie in NC was my partner and she used some of my favorite fabric (those viewfinder reels from Melody Miller) with a pattern I absolutely love and keep planning in my head with various fabrics (the Go Anywhere Bag Pattern from Anna over at Noodlehead). She included great scraps, a cute notebook and some yummy hot chocolate sticks (which said 2 year old promptly tried to claim as her own!). It was a great package! She did an awesome job on the bag and now that I've seen it made up I feel compelled to go make one (or two or three or...) more! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend after getting to relax and enjoy some time with family and/or friends this week. See you next week!
