Brrrrrrrrr.....Baby it's Cold Outside

But that didn't keep us away.  As we pulled up to the snow covered Church I realized how pretty this scene was and how lucky I am to be part of this group.  The guild trickled in and we turned on the heat, started the coffee and got settled in to a day of hooking, eating (and eating and eating and eating) and talking (and talking and talking and talking).  What fun and how relaxing. We saw old faces and met some new ones.  We admired each other's projects and picked up new tips and tricks and shared some of our own.  We had great door prizes and some beautiful wool for sale - oh the colors - who can buy just one quarter????    I hope to see you again in February!!

Sue sent some pictures from the day - I will post more as I get them.....

Did I mention food?

I made kielbasa and sauerkraut in the crockpot and had a lot of requests for the recipe. Here it is:

2 kielbasas cut into 1/4 inch slices
2 bags of sauerkraut (32 oz each)
1 cup of apple cider
approx 2 TBS of sugar to sprinkle on top before cooking

Put it all in the crockpot and cook on low for at least 8 hours.

With all of this snow, has anyone tried the old method of cleaning your hooked rugs in fresh snow?

Love those stacks of wool. Wonderful day with wonderful food and wonderful friends. I'm looking forward to February.
