Early Thanksgiving

The turkeys are so inexpensive at the grocery store that I decided they were too good to pass up.  We got our turkey for Thanksgiving, but our freezer is too small for more than one so we had turkey today.  I made sweet potatoes with Lipton onion soup mix, Stove Top stuffing, broccoli and cauliflower, and gravy .. now I'm cooking the bones in a pot to have soup later this week.  I'm feeling very domestic.

I finally decided what to do for the boy baby quilt I'm making.  Here's the first block.  I'm using the same fabric for another boy quilt I made a year ago.

I'm excited to have a plan.  This is the first nine patch I've made.

I'm also going to make a girl baby quilt and for that I'm making a stacked coin quilt.

Your 9 patch looks perfectly brilliant.

What is your sweet potato and onion soup recipe?

You have been really busy with cooking AND sewing.
