See that green ribbon around her neck? Well, a few years back she, my sister Delynn, and I went to Las Vegas. It was Brenda's first time in Vegas and within an hour she won a $500 jackpot and they gave her that ribbon. I tried the whole week to win a jackpot worthy of a ribbon, but I never won one. Even though I ended up winning more than Brenda, I just could never get the coveted ribbon. It has been a big joke between the two of us ever since. Almost every Christmas Brenda shows up with her ribbon around her neck. Last year the three of us went to a casino for the weekend of my birthday and darned if Brenda didn't show up with that ribbon! She has such a good sense of humor.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
