Merry Christmas!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!  I had about 15 people over for dinner and made prime rib.  Yum.  I turned some of the leftovers into a soup base, using the rib bones for some yummy flavor.  Any of you use a pressure cooker?  It makes soups so easy!  After dinner, I took the ends of the roast that were well done, some onion and celery and other spices, the bones, and the juice left in the pan, putting it all in my pressure cooker while we all opened presents.  Not much more than 30 minutes later, it was done and full of flavor!  I also have some great cuts of prime rib left to make some yummy sammies this week!  Today, my family (13 of us) went to an Aquarium and had a good time.  Now?  Laundry, cleaning, and getting the house together.

Over the last few days I have been working on assembling the Charlotte's baskets.  I have one row done and am working on row 2.  These seem to go together slowly because of the need for so many seams to line up.  I pin, pin, pin.

I also made some new ornaments with my sister!  She is a skilled knitter.  Perhaps I can send her over to the dark side, lol!  Nah...I doubt it.  There are three of these ornaments done now.  Perhaps I will get a few more done before I lose interest until next year!

Hopefully in a day or two I will have the Tiny Turning 20 done.  I literally am down to the last hour or two.  I just need a good movie!

  1. Oh, I LOVE being the first commenter. Your ornament colors are so cool!! Very nice job. The sashing for the baskets really sets them off.

    Good movie...hmmm...I guess it depends on your taste, but I love RED: Retired--Extremely Dangerous. Not MY usual style, but so stinkin' funny, in a drama/adventure/romance kinda way.
