WIPs With Friends

I hope all my friends had a great Thanksgiving weekend.  
Ours was pretty low key but nice. 
 I made a new recipe using brussel sprouts and butternut squash in a Maple-Soy glaze that 
turned out great!

What special recipes do you and your family make for Thanksgiving?

I managed to get quite a bit of stitching done this weekend, 
but much of it I can't share at this time as it is for gifts, sad I know.

My daughter in NC sent this photo of her and her boyfriend and their dog, Max.


Cole seems to disappear in the lap of my oldest daughter.


I took a couple of photos of my son and Finny and isn't this amazing? 
 I love how this picture came out.


I made a chenille blanket.  
This is what it looked like after cutting it but prior to washing and drying it.


Once in the washer and dryer the magic happens!  
If you want more info on making a chenille blanket go to the tutorial section in my header.


Look how big Cole is getting!!  That is a 24" mat.


Also, he and I play "fetch the ball" every day. 
 He was jumping up on my sewing table all weekend and dropping his ball for me to throw.  
I store batting behind my door so it doesn't open very far.  
I have to "thread the needle" through the space to throw it for him to go fetch. 
 I finally managed to get a good video of him doing it.  
Enjoy

That was a great pic you took! I would like to share it with my son if they is OK with you. He is a photographer. (robinsbusiness@hotmail.com)

Is Cole part dog? I have never seen a cat play fetch with a ball before, he is so cute. Lovely pics of the rest of the family too. Hugs, Susie x

A ball fetching cat? Now I have seen everything! Love the photograph of your son and cat!

The lighting on that photo is really neat! It sounds like it was a great Thanksgiving. Your ball playing with your kitty is better than mine with our new puppy. He still wants to take it elsewhere when he gets it.
