FNSI & Happy Thanksgiving!

So I had high hopes for FNSI so I threw together ham and scalloped potatoes for my family.  That's quick and easy right?  So while waiting for dinner to bake I decided that I would work on machine embroidery on some flour sack towels.  I love flour sack towels, reminds me of my grandma and times spent in North Dakota at grandma and grandpa's farm.  I have some fun snowman designs for my Elna, (aka Lucy) from Tattered Threads.  I downloaded them from  It's quick and easy and I can choose what designs I want instead of having to buy a whole 'collection'.  I like to have these towels on hand during the holidays, they make quick and easy gifts.  Pair them with a brownie or cake mix or favorite recipe and it's an awesome gift!  It's a great Secret Santa gift too! 

So as I worked on my towels, I spent the evening thinking about grandma and how much she loved the holidays.  I always miss my grandparents this time of year.  It's hard to believe that it's almost Thanksgiving.  I got a few towels done, but while cutting threads I fell asleep in my comfy chair.  Hope everyone had a great FNSI!
