I hope everyone's Thanksgiving Day was sweet and good and filled with family, friends and food. We are so blessed living in this land. I have lived in other countries and this one by far is my favorite for it's opportunities, it's people, and the freedoms here. We are STILL waiting for the turkey to hit 165 F and I am HUNGRY!! It smells so good. Guess we are eating European style tonight.
I read so much of hatred of this country, and of the President and of no socialized medicine (believe been there done that one in England and you do NOT want it!) ... well complaints about so many things, you name 'em. I happen to love it here. I know my family is supposed to be here. There is much to be hopeful about in this country and I am thankful our family was brought here back in the 70's.
Having said that I will move on to the slippers I am working on for Red Cliffs in St George, Utah. I have 2 pairs done now.
One was just a crocheted rectangle and that folded in half and stitched into a slipper.
The 2nd pair however, I decided to create a new pattern modeled after a pair of slippers someone once made me. They don't look exactly the same, but they turned out nice and cozy. I am still working on writing up the pattern, but here are the slippers. And they work up pretty quickly too and I was thinking I could add pompoms too for fun! I will post more photos as I get more colors done.
I hope to get the pattern posted on here before too long too. It won't go on my website likely as I was thinking of saving it exclusively for here and for my book but I have not heard from back from my co-author recently about the publisher...
I am going to check the turkey one more time.
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!
