A belated Happy Thanksgiving and TUSAL

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is enjoying the long weekend. For the international crowd, I hope you all are enjoying this weekend as well. Been very busy baking for the holidays as you can see by my seasonal shot of my Ort glass. Within those cookie tins and jars behind my ort glass (as well as a couple more tins and jars that didn't make the picture lies 80 dozen cookies. Actually less that since I have handed out several cookie trays this weekend. Baking cookies is probably my favorite holiday tradition. I can remember all of my life my Mom baking for days and how wonderful the house smelled from all the goodies. I have taken on that tradition and use many of her recipes and have added several new ones along the way. It appears that all my family and friends love the tradition as well - LOL!

So, my ort jar looks very much the same as last month's because I haven't given myself much time to stitch. What little has been added is from the Peaceable Kingdom BAP which will be put away this week in order for me to stitch some annual Christmas ornaments . I have two ornaments that HAVE to be done, and several more that I would love to get done - wish me luck!!

I have signed up for the WIPocalypse on Measie's Musings blog. If you have not seen it here is a short summary. Sometime between now and the beginning of next year you make a list of your WIP's and even those items you know you want to stitch, and post a picture of those WIP's. On the full of each month you post a picture of your progress. You can add things along the way, and take those finished things off your list. This is a SAL with a giveaway at the end, not a contest, so there is no real pressure. So all that is to say that sometime after next weekend's giveaway announcement, I will be posting my WIP's. And of course, Peaceable Kingdom will be on top of that list!!

Thank you for visiting my little blog, and don't forget to sign up on my giveaway post if you are interested in winning the prize.

Until next week, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!

80 dozen cookies!! That is amazing, Beth--sure wish I lived next door--I'll bet the aroma of freshly baked goodies is wonderful :)

Yummmmm on those cookies! What a lot of fun.

I joined the WIPocalypse, too. Didn't know about taking pics of them as is, though--but that makes sense! I need to go back and read the directions again so I'm clear on everything before the ball drops on 12/31!
