So I'm sorry I have been AWOL this month, we have had a ton of things going on. My mother in law has been battling cancer since July. At the beginning of this month she started to take a turn for the worst and last Sunday she went home to be with Jesus. I am very thankful that we had several months of her feeling pretty good and that she didn't suffer for long. It's never easy losing a loved one, but around the Holidays it's even worse. I feel so blessed to have know her for the past 8 years. We love you Nana and you are greatly missed!

Here are a few things that I have been up to.

Here is my beautiful sister in law modeling an apron I made for her.
 This is such a fun apron to make and it comes together so quickly.
I think I will quilt the next one I make.

 I also began my embroidery adventure this month. I am almost finished with my advent calendar (yay) which I will post later. I also started a birthday present for a girlfriend who loves owls. 

We had a great Thanksgiving Holiday and I had a lot to be thankful for! Spent time with family and we had some amazing food. However I am so mad, because I didn't take one picture not one :( 
I have a lot of things I want to do with my kiddos during the Christmas season. We are going to make some tasty treats that only come out during the Holidays: Carmel corn, sausage balls, peanut brittle and I want  us to make a gingerbread house. We will also be making some homemade ornaments that I saw on Martha the other day, hopefully I will remember to take some pictures :) 
So lots to come and I will be posting regularly again. 
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday!! 
One more thing, my husband and I were trying to figure out an issue with my laptop and we ended up doing something wrong. Needless to say we had to take it in to apple and my poor husband had to wait about an hour past our reservation just to see one of the tech guys. It was an easy fix and covered under warranty- Praise God! So my husband leaves to get us dinner. He drives home, we eat and he heads back out to apple. Then what happens, he hits a pot hole which blows out a chunk of the tire and bends the frame a tiny bit. Another praise all that is covered under warranty. I am thankful for warranties!! What a month!! So that is another reason why I didn't post earlier this week!
