Happy Thanksgiving to All


Things are still crazy at work but I wanted to take a minute to wish my quilting gals and their families a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving. If any of you are traveling this weekend, please be extra careful! There are a lot of TURKEYS out there and I'm not talking about the gobblers we will be eating on Thursday! LOL

All of you have added another dimension to my quilting life with your enthusiasm, expertise, and genuine love for this wonderful handcraft and for that I am thankful!! I also treasure the sharing of our lives, the simple things that happen every day, the ups and downs, the joys and tears. We were brought together by our love for fabric and quilting and have become friends spread out all over this big world. It's pretty amazing!!

On my quilting front, I broke ground on a new quilt which is a challenge quilt with my guild due in December. I have the top done but for the borders and some embellishments. I will be working diligently on it this weekend. It is definitely a design which is outside of the box for me. Once we present them on December 12, I will post pictures. I can't do it sooner since some of the guild members read my blog and it's a super secret challenge. The infamous "Mystery Quilt from Hell" is quilted and just needs be bound. I'll be glad to get that one done!! With the cold weather hitting us this week, I have picked up the knitting needles and started some scarves for quick Christmas gifts.

Lastly, I am headed to my 30th high school class reunion this Saturday. I am meeting with a good HS friend I haven't seen in 10 years though we have been emailing and Christmas carding each other for quite some time. She is coming from Seattle. Reunions are always interesting. I went to the 5th, 10th and 20th reunions and had a great time. I know lots of people don't like reunions but I really enjoyed high school and had a great group of friends. It's always nice to reconnect.

I'll bet you are wondering where the 30 years went, too! I know I wonder where the 40 years went. =) Have a wonderful reunion.

I look forward to seeing your quilt. You'll be revealing it on my birthday!

Happy Thanksgiving...I have a friend who just went to her 30th... She said it was the best. People aren't out "Discovering" who they are. They were grounded and sincere.. Hope you have fun.

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. Have a great time at your reunion -- my 30th will be here before I turn around. How is that possible?

Happy thanksgiving to you as well. Next week, when my life is a little less hectic i am going to have a go at copying those little button dolls that I posted. I'll take step by step photos and we'll see how it goes!
