I hope those of you that celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our turkey was done an hour and a half early causing a bit of stress while trying to get everything else ready and on the table. I don't know why I was surprised as it seems to have become a tradition for it to be done significantly earlier than the recipes all call for. I have had the same problem in three different ovens, so it's not the oven. I have used different roasting charts, so it's not the directions. I have even called the turkey hotline and used their directions - still early. Of course, as soon as I factor in the time difference, it will take two hours longer.
I took last week off, except for Friday, and had a very relaxing time. I even had a good time at work yesterday as it was VERY quiet and I got a lot done.
I did some stitching last week - one I can't show right now and one I can.
Here's my progress on Chatelaine's Japanese Octagonal Box:
Hmmm, not a lot of progress but every stitch counts. I haven't looked at my cards to see what will be on the stand this coming week, but as the day is fast coming to a close, I suppose I should take a look.
I am still mulling my 2013 project list. Nicola at Stitching By a Cornish Seashore is hosting a Scarlet Letter Challenge next year. While I love Scarlet Letter charts, I do not have any in my stash and I am on a stash diet so won't be buying any, but I will definitely be watching every one's progress.
