Thursday Turkey and Huggins Haven

I ran across this blog with the most creative relish tray that I've ever seen. Isn't this cool? I pinned it on my Pinterest to remind myself to get the ingredients next month for Thanksgiving and am sharing the link to the  Princess Pinky Girl blog  for the recipe with the list of ingredients. If this is too large for your family, there is a photo of a smaller one on there too. This would be fun to take to share if you're going to a larger family dinner also.

Our group on Facebook that I mentioned in my last post is doing well and 140 people have joined so far. I 've gotten two orders with more to follow(I hope) and have been busy making up more stitched pieces. This is the most recent card I finished just a day or two ago and I have another I've yet to take a photo of.

Most of us that are crafting in the group are seniors trying to earn a little $ for needed expenses and the holidays that are approaching so you are getting unique items and helping grandparents. So hope you will check out all the cool stuff and know that more is on the way. Huggins Haven... Nancy donates some of her proceeds to dog rescue also. She supports The Grizz Project which was set up by her daughter when she lived in New Mexico. There is a terrible problem with stray dogs on the reservation there and one woman is making a career for herself to help them. Here is the  link to her donation site., The Grizz Project  so if you purchase anything from Nancy, you're helping abandoned and neglected dogs also. So far this month, they've gotten $125 towards helping this fine organization.

Fall Leaf Crafts

I saw this video and thought I'd share it. We don't have maple trees in our area but for those that do..this is so pretty.

Here is another idea for those leaves..makes me want to go out and find something that would work just as well in our neighborhood. The colors that maple  have are so gorgeous!
