Crazy Week

It has been been completely crazy around here this week! My week started off with me hitting a deer with my car. The bright side is no injuries to me but the down side is there are injuries to my car. That little glitch put in my plans as I was going to do my turkey shopping on Monday but instead I had to do it this morning. Since the kids are out for Thanksgiving Break they ended up coming with me shopping. *sigh* You guessed it...I forgot about half of what I needed. So I ended up making a last minute run back to the grocery store at 4 PM and let me say the store was a complete mess of shoppers!
However, in between grocery runs I did manage to finish Mac's box off today. It isn't one of my finest finishes as I was being rushed by a 9 year old but it made me him happy.
After that it was back to the kitchen for me. I managed to get a cheesecake baked, a pumpkin pie baked and 5 dozen peanut butter cookies baked. Tomorrow the good stuff gets to be made! :)
With the past few days being so crazy I haven't had a chance to read any blogs or answer some of the questions so here goes:
Stitchermommy-The name of the pattern is called Colorful Critters Tree Frog by Funk and Weber Designs.
Becky K- Yes, the fabric is hand dyed by me. I hand dye about 75 percent of the colored fabrics I use.
I hope every one has a great day tomorrow and to all my friends celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow.....Happy Thanksgiving!!!

The box looks great and the fabric you choose is perfect for it. Have fun with the cooking but don't stress to much. Glad everyone was ok after the deer accident. Definitely something to be thankful for.

Oh no! Don't feel too bad about hitting a deer - I just nailed my first one a few weeks ago. Years of living in and around woods loaded with them and I never hit one. I guess we were both a little unlucky this year. Glad to hear you weren't hurt - cars can always be fixed.
