Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Friends, I want to take this time to wish you and your family a very Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!

This turkey was from last year. For some reason I ended up with a 19 lb turkey this year. I told my family we will be eating leftover turkey through the entire month of December.

It’s been a busy and crazy year! Nonetheless, I have jotted down the last couple of weeks in my planner to remind myself that God is good, and to make being thankful to Him a lifestyle.

In case you didn’t see, Gwen shared her trinket stitching pumpkins on Aurifil’s blog. You may download the chart there. You may read her post here.


I have been making blocks for my Basketful of Blessings in November. These blocks go really quickly. I like that I am able to incorporate the Ohio Star unit in my blocks. You will get a chuckle if you have attended my How Many Ways to use the Ohio Stars presentation.

This design works well with anything from your stash. 10 FQs + fabrics for background and border. Of if you want yours scrappy, you could use 20 different fabrics for the 20 blocks. Or you can just make 3 or 4 blocks for a table runner.

You may purchase the pattern here:

My house is cleaned. My table is set. I have a few hours still before I have to work on Thanksgiving sidedishes. I am going to sit and just do some handstitching for a couple of hours while listening to my daughter chatter on.

Some of you might have seen QuiltShopGal’s feature on Gwen’s call for sponsorship for Wreaths Across America. If you haven’t, here is the link.

Click HERE if you would like to sponsor any wreaths at Arlington Cemetery this year. We were going to help lay the wreaths this year, but just got news that this year’s laying will not be open to the public.

And with that, I hope you will remember in your thoughts and prayers the gold star families in our country as you gather amongst your loved ones in commemorating Thanksgiving this year.

Love and blessings to you, from my house to yours!

  1. What a thoughtful and generous post this morning. Such beautiful comments of Gwen by SewCalGal. We need more “Gwen’s” in our society. A proud moment for Mom and Dad. A very generous family, indeed. It is a time for all of us to reflect and to be thankful. ❤️❤️❤️
