UGH, Jan and I are not applique fans either!!! I think I'll do mine with machine applique on the DJ, if I do DJ!
Got my list out for Thanksgiving Dinner. I make it easier on myself by baking the turkey the day before! I slice it up and put it in a large pyrex baking dish with juices from the turkey to keep it moist. I only have to reheat it on Thanksgiving day. I have done this for the past few years, and it really helps with all the other dishes that need to be cooked. I also do my potatoes in the crock pot!
Likewise QuiltE, so glad our friends here were safe from the Tornadoes!
