Thanksgiving day came and our assignment was rolls, but dinner was not until 3:00 pm.  Plenty of time to go to the Momma's friend Debbie's house to make rolls together!  Four batches ought to do it!

The rolls were great!  So was the rest of the feast!

Meanwhile, at a buffet in Reno, Nevada on their way to Lake Tahoe....

Howdy, Jojo & Kari!

And a few thousand miles away on an island in the middle of the ocean, gathering with friends...

Aloha, Lali & Ry!

Food, Family, Friends and Feasting!  We may not be together, but we are together in our Thanks-giving!

New Apron

It was a "Meat Night" get-together. 
No frills.
No "sides".
No ladies.
Just the guys.  And meat. And prizes.

The Dad had been experimenting...

7-Up/Soy/Horseradish marinade.  Not as good as he remembered.
Barbecue.  Nope, nothing unusual there.
Back to the old standard:  Bernstein's Cheese & Garlic Italian Dressing.
Marinate the chicken breasts for a few hours, then throw it on the grill.  That's it.
Well, add a new apron made by the Momma a few minutes beforehand. 

The result?  2nd Prize Winner!!  Must have been the apron!

Look at that smile.  Now, what's for dinner?  Maybe some grilled corn on the cob?
I know a guy.

Makers Gotta Make....

After a couple of sewing/quilting sessions with La-li, here is what her little pile of creations looked like. 

Clockwise from left to right:  Naugahyde tulip bag, Sleeve bag, Embroidery, pencil bag, OMQG nametag,
 customized notebook, hand stitched coin purse, fabric billfold purse.
Sunset was coming on, but she was Über excited to "Sew-n-Tell"!
A big, yellow Tulip Bag for Cissy!

Complete with grommets and hardware!

Assorted baggage & ebroidery:

The green zipper bag is made from the sleeves of a cute old shirt she wore in High School; found at the Thrift store, likely from the 70s.  The second is a quilted pencil bag from cute scraps lying around the sewing room, and the embroidery is her own needlework.

Re-do of a quilted nametag for the Oahu Modern Quilt Guild:

Lali removed elements from a nametag she didn't like and repositioned in a new setting.  Momma quilted and bound it with crochet-edged bias trim, then added a ribbon lanyard.  The little sewing machine is based on a pattern HERE. <<
New wallet!!

Perfect fabrics for a summer purse in Japan!

Ohmigosh, so cute - both the girl and her collection!

Come back for another sewing day, soon!
