Odds and Ends

I love Fridays! Don't you? What are your plans this weekend? I hope to get some more outside work done this weekend. Maybe some hooking. Lots of cooking. I am having such fun cooking right now.

I thought I would share that big old Give Ye Thanks rug. I worked on it off and on this week. My goal was to have it finished by Thanksgiving, I don't know if I will make it though.

Pattern by NotForgotton Farms-Spruce Ridge
I liked the bird.
I just need to get with it. It is so big it is going to take me a bit to get it bound. I have so many other things that I would like to do some more things. I got a Christmas pattern, so I need to finish up my fall rugs.

Pattern from Old Tattered Flag
It looks like a fun pattern to hook. I hope you have a lovely weekend. I have a whole bunch of things I want to bake today, so I am going to be playing in the kitchen.

Thank you so much for stopping by today,

“But housekeeping is fun. It is one job where you enjoy the results right along as you work. You may work all day washing and ironing, but at night you have the delicious feeling of sunny clean sheets and airy pillows to lie on. If you clean, you sit down at nightfall with the house shining and faintly smelling of wax, all yours to enjoy right then and there. And if you cook—that creation you lift from the oven goes right to the table.”
― Gladys Taber

Your Give Ye Thanks rug is looking great and you're almost finished. How big is this rug anyway? The Santa looks like an easy pattern and you should have that done in no time.

I used to love to be in the kitchen but I'm getting too lazy to cook. Everything that taste good is not good for us. sigh...

Enjoy your time in the kitchen.

Your rug is beautiful and I bet you'll get it done by Thanksgiving....Sounds like you've been a busy bee in the kitchen...Wishing you'd come to my house and stir up a few pots...Have a great weekend...

I saved money out of my grocery budget specially to buy a quart of local organic cream. I'm going to make Meg's chocolate mousse pie with it, and it will be to die for. :-) (The local cream doesn't hurt my stomach like the cheap stuff does.) Ryan wants buffalo chicken strips for dinner, so we'll need pie to cool the burn.

You will have that rug finished this weekend. I have faith in your speed. Plus I want to see that Santa rug. It's sweet

Beautiful rug, if the weather cooperates I will work outside, going to a quilt show with a friend and I enjoy household chores

The colours in the Give Thanks rug are so lovely Kim!
Enjoy your day in the kitchen and outside this weekend!

Give Ye Thanks is wonderful! I love the colors.
Santa will be fun to see too.

I'm wondering what you're cooking and baking? I need to bake since we'll be having bull customers coming this weekend. Maybe some cinnamon buns!

I so enjoy GT's words.

I love these close-ups of your rugs. Also like to go to your shop and see the gallery of ones available *and* some that have sold and have reviews. Some day you will demonstrate rug-hooking for me in person. :-)

Yes, please do tell what you've been cooking!

I do like the colours in the rug and the last quote from Gladys Taber is just perfect.

Enjoy your weekend - I think in my part of the UK we are in for some heavy rain ...

All the best Jan

I love Fridays ... even though we're both retired so technically every day is Friday, there's still something about a Friday. I love your Give Ye Thanks rug ... and I can't wait to see the Santa rug come together.
