Last year I was the lucky winner of a pattern giveaway from Acorn Hollow. Cathy already had the Cushing pattern and was the recipient of a second one as a gift exchange from her guild. Since I put my Woolly Santa away thought it worthy of displaying the hooked piece today. Thanks Cathy, I loved hooking it.
Can't believe a new calendar will be in effect just 5 days from now. It will probably take me a week to remember to print 2021 when writing a check.
Made sure to purchase a bag of black-eyed peas last week because one year I was too late and couldn't find black-eyed peas at Walmart anywhere, not in the freezer section or canned goods. Same bad luck at another grocery store. Decided to take a chance at Roses discount store and saw someone re-stocking canned black eyed peas so grabbed a can. Not as good as fresh cooked but if it gave me just a 'little' good luck for the new year that would be good enough. A little luck is better than no luck 😄 .
Although I do have some Germanic DNA I never grew up eating sauerkraut and pork on New Years eve (Sylvester). My mother always had the traditional southern meal of black-eyed peas and I carried on that tradition albeit just for me.
