Puzzles and Pie

I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is already over...and December is staring us right in the face!

We had a very low-key and relaxing holiday with lots of time for stitching, knitting and reading. We didn't do too much food and just had a couple of favorite dishes. 

I did make a pumpkin pie, though. I love pumpkin pie...always have. I remember in my twenties, whenever we would eat at a cafe or restaurant that had pies for dessert (hello, Marie Callender's) I would always order pumpkin pie. No matter what month it was. I just loved it.

The other thing we enjoyed over the weekend was putting together a puzzle!

I'm not sure how many years it's been since we did a puzzle, but it has to be at least 8-10 years. Happily, our puzzle skills were still in shape and we had it finished in two days. Minus one piece that seems to be missing.

I can see more puzzles in our holiday future :)

Your stitchwork is beautiful, as always. And I love the puzzle! (Is it a Wysocki?? My husband and I have worked about 50 of them over the last few years, and can’t get enough.) Also I love hearing about a more quiet Thanksgiving. That’s our favorite kind – intimate, with a few choice dishes to recapture the nostalgic feelings of warmth and togetherness.
