As busy as things have been, I thought I'd miss most
of the fall around here but it is almost December and
the colors are just now starting to dull and blow away.
I'm convinced this has been the prettiest and the most
drawn-out fall we've had in a long time. And at the risk
of being a wee bit mushy, I know that when we're all
sitting around that Thanksgiving dinner table here in
a couple days, the blessings I'll be thinking of will be as
colorful and numerous as all the leaves we've enjoyed
these last months. Many of them have kept us hopping
but I wouldn't change a thing.
I have some basic holiday cleaning done and a simple
but classic menu planned. I haven't done anything
special in the table decor department--yet? Right now,
it doesn't seem to matter much. A cozy and welcoming
home with everyone in it is enough.
Anything else is just a bonus.
(Does anyone else out there need to hear this?)
Before I check out for the rest of the week to enjoy
this holiday, I'm joining the others over at the
to share just one bit of progress:
Hudson Valley Palisades top is finally completed.
It's loaded and ready to be quilted (and it'll probably
stay that way till after the holiday) but I think it
measures something like 71x71?
As for the rest of my list...well, clearly I'm in a
no-pressure kind of mood so it's all showing
up again on next week's list.
*Choose J's quilt fabrics--visit LQS
*Bind and label G's quilt
*Quilt Hudson Valley Palisades
In other news, one son will be home late this evening
and the cadet will be home tomorrow night.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family
and happy thankful, colorful quilting!
