She's done it again. The Thanksgiving Pickle Nosed Lady

We had a lovely Thanksgiving this year. Sharon set the alarm for 6 am so she could get up to make bread pudding.....Don't ask me why she got up at the crack of dawn to throw together a dish that was done by 8 am. Maybe she was just REALLY excited to make the Whiskey sauce. We went to Don and Norma's and ate a wonderful meal of NW Salmon, NW stuffing (hazelnuts make it NW), yummy brussels with gorgonzola cheese, and a devine apple pie with fresh ginger. I won't take any credit for the gorgeous pie. Norma came through with her centerpiece lady of squash, peppers, pickles, mushrooms, and parsley. I later added the booby squash.
Here is also a photo of the apron I made for Norma. My first attempt at embroidering (done on a manic impulse with no embroidery ring).

After stuffing ourselves, we came home and the kids actually let Sharon and I lay down for a nap. A REAL NAP! Then, off to Meredith's mom's house. It is a huge old Victorian starting on the way up Mt. Tabor. Sam loved running up and down the huge staircase. Makes me miss my old house in Denver.
Black Friday was spent far away from the malls. I picked out colors for the guest room and we prepared for painting. I will post the "final pics" after the color is on!

You have to admit, Ms. Pickle Nose has charm . . . personality . . . whatever.
