Thanksgiving Ideas to Try Something New from From My Carolina Home

With the holiday coming next week, preparations here are well underway.  Decorating, cooking and sharing time with friends and family is the heart of the holiday.  With over five years of posts, sometimes it is good to revisit past posts with holiday ideas.  In looking back, I realized I’ve not done a post on stuffing/dressing.  I’ll have to get some good photos this year for one on the many variations I like to do. This one was made with sourdough bread, onions, bacon and mushrooms with sage and oregano, a recipe from Bon Appétit from at least ...

Stamping Thanksgiving Cards from From My Carolina Home

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year.  I love the Macy’s parade, the football games, the turkey dinner, and the anticipation of the holiday season ahead.  The fall colors are blazing, and a cold day means a fire in the fireplace too, with any luck.  I’ve been sending Thanksgiving cards to my family for years, and they look forward to getting one every year.  That means starting early, and I got out a selection of papers and card stock to get going.  These looked good together, a mix of light, medium and dark.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving from Clever Chameleon

Happy Thanksgiving table top quilt with turkey at Clever Chameleon

Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful holiday for the coming weekend

Australians as a whole don’t do Thanksgiving, although many traditional churches do have a low-key harvest thanksgiving service in our late summer or early autumn. But I like thankfulness, and since it’s likely impossible to indulge in too much thankfulness, the Chameleon and I are getting on the Canadian bandwagon today. Happy Thanksgiving for the weekend and Monday, Canadian friends and everyone!

It wasn’t until last year that I became aware that Canada has its own Thanksgiving Day, separate from the American occasion. And then ...

Talking Turkey: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

October’s Island Batik Challenge is “Top It Off”

Top it off button for October's Island Batik challenge

My challenge as an Island Batik Ambassador in October is to: create a holiday runner or table topper, any size; must include appliqué. But don’t you think that’s a bit too easy for the Chameleon? He’s a challenge veteran by now!

So, let’s make it a proper challenge then. Purely self-imposed. Hmmm…… How about also: use the Accuquilt Cleopatra’s Fan die supplied in the July ambassador supplies box; make it juvenile; and choose a culturally irrelevant holiday. That should Top it right Off!

Hahaha. Sure! Luckily ...
