12 points for Poinsettia!

If you're playing Words with Friends, that is.  Scrabble if you're old school.  Unless you're counting the point on each petal, then it's 15.  Don't worry, I won't tell anyone you cheated.

I got my sewing machine back (which, if you didn't know, is how Stella really got her groove back, if you ask me) and I am back in business. Except I'm not selling anything.

I did however, make this poinsettia pillow that I found on Pinterest - originally from Pottery Barn - which is no longer available apparently.  The original is a mere 12 inches, but I like 'em big (tmi? Ha! They're pillows people, get your mind out of the gutter!...MOM) so this baby is a gargantuan 20 inches.

I have a confession to make.  I chose the word gargantuan because I wanted to see if I could spell it right on a whim.  I totally can.  I then looked it up because then I thought my spell checker didn't catch it because maybe it thought I was typing gibberish and just completely gave up on me.  Needless to say, we're still friends.

This poinsettia pillow is being gifted to my grandma-in-law, who LOVES poinsettias more than her own children.  Seriously.  Just kidding.  Confused yet?  My mother- and grandma-in law (who live in the same house as one another) love decorating for the holidays.  And when I say holidays, I mean every. single. one.  I'm sure there's a box somewhere with all their shower curtains they buy.  Not that there's anything wrong with being festive I say, so I figured a poinsettia pillow would help feed their addiction and get one Christmas gift out of the way.

I won't be around for the rest of the week, I'll be enjoying the feast tomorrow and hanging with family for the rest of the weekend.  I'm sure you'll all be doing the same, so Happy Thanksgiving!  Eat lots of food and get fat and happy!
