turkey squares
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday are over.  All the family has gone home.  No more leftovers, thank goodness.  What have I been doing?  Nothing much since I had some stomach problems for a few days, but I’ve managed to get the Hurricane Sandy charity quilt tied and ready for binding.

Since this is a flannel quilt, both top and bottom, and it clings to the wool carpet in my den, I did not do a traditional pin baste.  I used heavy books to hold the sandwich in place and it seemed to work out perfectly.  It’s a little hard on my neck and back, but I need to stretch.  Lots!!!!!
Right now I’m cooking a pot of pinto beans and a pan of Mexican Cornbread using my mother-in-law's recipe.  You know it’s an old one if it calls for a No. 303 can of creamed corn.  I had to look that up on the Internet to see what that is in today’s can sizes.  I hope all the other ingredients work alright.  We will have to just wait and see.
