Quilting away...

I am quilting a Christmas row quilt for my son Michael and his wife Daniela. It may not be ready for them to take it home when they return to California after Thanksgiving, but I will try. Thinking of decorating for Christmas, the image of tangled up lights came to mind and I could not resist transferring it to the fabric... My son will definitely be able to relate to it.

Thanksgiving Day came much too quickly this year. I have an infinite number of blessings to be thankful for and, although I am aware of each one every day, Thanksgiving Day provides the ideal setting for acknowledging them. Our small family will gather around the table, my first grandchild will be ready to eat his pureed squash, and my boys will be rowdy. I am thankful for it all, even the heartbreaks, if this makes any sense...
 
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
