WOYWW 234--Turkey Time!

I love holiday vacations...family time, a little crafty time, and planning and cooking for Thanksgiving. Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday!
There's my coffee, pearl cotton embroidery thread, little tags cut out in felt, and grommet making goodies.

I've been catching up on my tag-making, while making lists for my Thanksgiving cooking. Wednesday is when I make the cranberry sauce, black forest pie, spoon cornbread, and put together the stuffing. Thursday is everything else--a 20-lb. roast turkey, mashed potatoes, bubble buns, a special green bean dish, broccoli cheese and rice casserole, and something new: crockpot pumpkin pie. You see I wanted to use fresh pumpkin from my garden, but I wanted to do something new, so we'll see how it goes! I have lots of recipe testers around to try it. Have a wonderful week!


  1. What a pretty little stitched tag, Sandy! It looks antique! Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Your menu sounds pretty close to mine, except I've never heard of crock pot pumpkin pie!! Hugs, Darnell #17

  2. Enjoy your Thanks Giving. Love your fabric tag. I am a paper tag girl. #31

  3. Your embroidered tag is very charming, and your Thanksgiving day menu sounds delicious. Happy WOYWW and Blessings!

  4. I love that pretty stitched tag. To a UK lady like me those recipes/dishes sound so exotic and unimaginable (I thought they were something only you cooked up!) then I see Darnell is having a similar menu! Wow! Thanksgiving must be amazing! It sounds like you're going to have a fabulous time. I wish you every joy! Julie Ann xx #55

  5. Beautiful stitched tag - how clever :-) I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving :-)

  6. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your nearest and dearest! Is your mum coming, if so give her a hug from me :-)
    Actually, do you have space? I'm coming over..your food sounds so delicious. I'd forgotten about your bubble buns until you mentioned them, I remember you talking about the recipe last year!! The Pumpkin pie sounds interesting too, :-P
    Hope you're keeping well and happy! I'm full of cold at the moment but am taking lots of ginger to fight the bugs.
    Hugs, LLJ 25 xx

  13. Sounds like whats going on at my house, except for the crock pot pumpin pie...gonna have to google that! I am at work, on break...last night I made my crusts, put them in the tins and threw them in the freezer. tonight, getting the potatoes peeled and cut for Mashed potatoes, putting the dressing together, brining the turkey for tomorrow, I know I have forgotten something....oh and to make matters more fun, I have a Dr appointment at 7:00 PM.....not a good time for that, but will fit it in. Can't wait for the family to come over tomorrow for the cooking together, playing, giggling and most of all to be Thankful for all.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones,

    Hugs, Robin #87
