Day 26 of AEDM

Click on the picture above for additional Day 26 creative goodness.

I want to wish everyone who celebrates the holiday, a Happy Thanksgiving!  This will be the most unusual Thanksgiving holiday for the record books.  It’s just the household celebrating together today, me, The Hubs & The Bun.  We saw The Son Unit & his girlfriend briefly yesterday.  We all wore masks during their quick stop to drop off a turkey for the freezer & to pick up some frozen stuffs I gave them.

Please excuse the photos.  I took them with the phone’s camera.

This morning I made from scratch waffles in an attempt to add some holiday cheer.  They were delicious!

My brother-in-law stopped by to deliver some Yak steaks & Yak burger & to yak a bit to The Hubs.  They stayed outside while The Bun & I waved through the window.

This is the first Thanksgiving where I had/made time to do creative work besides the dinner.

I made new patterns for the arms/flippers & legs for the Gourd Trouble doll.
“After turning them right-side-out, the foot was too big, but fixable.  I turned them inside-out once again, used a chalk pencil to outline where I needed to stitch, cut off the excess & Wa-La… perfect sized feet!  Oh, yes I did.  I waved my arms around like a spastic frog named Kermit.  That didn’t help the crick in my neck one bit.

Next, I made armatures & wrapped them in cheesecloth.

Now we have a pair of sexy legs ready to stuff & attach!

This picture gives you an idea of how they’ll look on the doll.

The house is starting to fill with delicious holiday smells. The Hubs & I are waiting for The Bun to finish some homework & then we’ll start a movie marathon of all The Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen.

Big hugs for the hard, stay safe & I’ll be back tomorrow with more creative hooey fresh from The Flatlands of NW Ohio.

  4. I’m not sure why I didn’t link until now today. I certainly linked at Rain’s. DUH.

    Wow, your waffle looks wonderful. I bought some whipping cream and didn’t have a way to use it because I didn’t have any pumpkin in my cupboard. Yours looks delicious and now I’m really hungry.
