AFTER THE FEAST

Does your family boast an incredibly tacky 50's kind of platter?  The one that makes its debut but once a year?  Ours does, and it was handed down to me.  Woo-hoo.  Notice the crack in the upper left corner?  You can't destroy these things!
I hope that you all had a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving day.  This guy became a "lap dog" when the turkey aroma finally transformed his good manners -
It's to his credit that he rarely begs.  In his defense, there were some substantial items being passed around that were worth begging for!  We had a beautiful meal and a quiet afternoon.  Sometime during the night I was nailed by the latest viral something - translating into a horrific head cold.  Snot City.  Sorry.


But the good news is that the Briar Rose fiber came - the skein that Chris dyed for me so that I could finish my Hilflowers shawl.  Chris is a magician - there is no way to separate the new from the old fiber.  How does she do that?
The shawl is calling to me from the couch.  Turner Classics, here I come.

Sorry you have a cold. Get better soon!

LOVE that platter, especially the expression on the turkey's face.

DH fed our dog some turkey on Thursday and we are now dealing with the "aftermath." Ahem.

Love the turkey platter. I don't think it's tacky--it's turkey platter art.

No tacky platters around here. So glad you have the yarn to finish your shawl.
