Turkey soup

You know Thanksgiving is over when you make turkey soup which is what I did today. We had a wonderful holiday. We had dinner with my aunt and her family. Isn't her table beautiful? I love a beautiful table. I think Thanksgiving may be my favorite holiday. There is not the pressure of Christmas and you almost always are with your family. If you don't want to cook you can even order a whole meal from the grocery store! I have done that before and it isn't bad.

The greatest thing for me is that the members of my family are also my friends.

This is what the turkey looked like when my cousin finished carving. My other cousin's sweet potato biscuits were to die for. We had so much food and it was all so good.

My aunt and I visited our favorite quilt shop on Friday and I found some great fabrics. I actually followed a lady around to grab the piece on the right.

These are for my black and white snails trail.

My aunt is giving some of her stash away and I got these two great prints. Aren't they darling?

We got home on Saturday and I got some time to sew on Sunday. I have put together my snails trail but I have no idea where to go from here. I want to add a border but that may have to wait until after Christmas.

I hope to do a couple of Christmas placemats. And I do need to do some shopping!! I can't decorate until they finish with my house. Oh well!!

I boiled my turken bones and have frozen the broth but don't know how to make turkey soup: got a good recipe?

I would put a narrow dark blue (from the blocks) around your snails trail and then a print border on the outside.
