Looking back through the pictures of delicious food causes me to consider how fortunate I am. I have a wonderful family, a warm home, good food, a wii to play on with my grandma! and so much more. There is so much to be thankful for, even if the economy isn't what we hope for. My favorite thanksgiving memories are making a new bacon/apple stuffing, eating Wanda's amazing cranberry salad, spedning time in the kitchen with my mom, cow racing against my grandma on the Wii, making fresh air-popped popcorn to watch elf with Kara, Kelson and Patty, and drinking lattes with Dave and Pam. What a wonderful holiday to spend with family!

Sunday is designated dress making day. My mom and I are the official dressmakers. I picked out the pattern and fabric and she is lending her sewing expertise...translating the sewing terminology, sewing the difficult seams, and double checking all my work. good would probably be a disaster without her, or it would never get done!

The dress is for a project runway party. A friend invited me to join a group of women who like to sew and want to try something new. The deal is you are supposed to make a dress...making your own pattern and using material you don't usually use. Well, since I am new to sewing (I just received my first machine last Christmas) and haven't made an actual article of clothing before, I figured I could bend the rules.

So, I recruited the help of Vogue (by using one a pattern) and my mother. Hopefully, with the two of them, I'll make it work.
