Busy busy busy time of year........

 Hello Friends! I'm back and with some finished projects.......that's right some of my crafts that I mentioned in my last post are now complete. Here are some of them. As you can see I'm now into doing some embroidery. That seems to be really relaxing for me and also something I can do while watching tv at night. I don't fall asleep that way.

And this little pillow is done as well but realized that I have not taken a picture of the finished one....oh well, you get the drift.

Today I hosted the Ladies Lunch.....we haven't gotten together in a while so we were overdue. We decided that salad and sandwiches would be just fine. A few apps as well and p-l-e-n-t-y of wine. Of course knowing that I would blog soon I decided to take pictures for you. Here we go..........

 My table setting. And my version of the Carol Shilber Designs. carolshilberdesign.com. She makes the most beautiful napkin cuffs and place mats. Mine are no way as beautiful as hers but I'm pretty happy with them.
 My centerpiece was a grouping of glass candle sticks with handpainted glass xmas balls (by Moi of course) and plain silver ones. I can't take the credit for the idea as I think I found it on Pinterest.
My salad was a mixture of greens as well as purple onions, chopped apples, cucumbers, small tomatoes, grated carrots, craisins, candied pecans, goat cheese and a few herbed croutons. The dressing was Good Seasons mixed per directions with apple cider vinegar a tablespoon of brown sugar, a couple dashes of Soy sauce and a few drops of toasted sesame oil. mmmmm!

Chicken Salad made on focaccia bread and contains raisins, celery, curry powder, rosemary and mayo. I spread the bread with Stonewall Kitchen's Cranberry Horseradish sauce and place on lettuce.
That was it.. but we had some great deserts also
Thank you Ladies--Donna, Joyce, Jayne-Dottie-Helen & Cheryl for sharing the day with me and enjoying my food.Great company and better friends.

That's it for now and hope that I can get into the "spirit" to get some shopping done tomorrow.

                 Bon Soire and till the next time.....Be safe.....and enjoy each day.
