the colors are a bit wonky here, but this is my latest rug weaving project. I took a "refresher" course at one of my favorite places, Alewives in Damriscotta Mills. In between orders for custom holiday cards, working on handmade Christmas presents, and making our own Christmas cards I am weaving a row or two of this rug....very relaxing! Was thinking about making 1 or 2 for gifts but I'm out of time on that so I'll start them as gifts for birthdays and such.

(ok, I'm a bad scrapper...didn't even bring my camera for Thanksgiving, so no photos. I made the apple pie above after being inspired by one on "Martha Stewart"...)
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving...here's a quick re-cap of my holiday weekend.....
*my sister in law, Cami arrived early from Oklahoma, and we all went to see "New Moon". LOVED IT!!! I know I'm the minority (at least in my family) but I am so Team Jacob...hello, did you not see him shirtless through the entire movie?! Of course, I haven't read "Breaking Dawn" yet (holding out b/c then once I read it it will be over for awhile..I know I'm weird), and I hear that I will not love Jacob any longer. Bummer.
*Thanksgiving was held at my mother in law's. I was responsible for appetizer (made yummy cheese ball from Stonewall Kitchen recipe) & mashed potatoes (of which I made a ton...we are now eating Shepherd's Pie with leftovers). A fun day of playing with kids, hanging out with family, tasty wine, and lots of food.
*went shopping with sis in law, Sunithi, on Black Friday. Wasn't totally crazy & we left at 8am. I was impressed with how organized the stores were with lines & check out. We scored some crazy good deals and were home by 11am.
hope you all had a great weekend too!
