Happy Thanksgiving, may you all have blessings too numerous to list!
I tried dressing Oliver as a Pilgrim, or a turkey, or even holding a pumpkin pie, but he was truly not interested. His big passion now is crouching by the windows and front glass door and squeaking at the Juncos in the bushes outdoors. We are counting our blessing of Oliver, our new cat, in our life. He brought back sunshine to us.
I've been piecing a small quilt, discovering the pleasure of working with fabrics, arranging color and designs to form something I like. It's very relaxing to sew small pieces together, press and starch, play on the design wall. I hear my music playing softly, the leaves are still blowing past my windows, or the fog is rolling in. Soon winter will arrive, but this is a great way to begin the season, when lights go on at 4:30 p.m., and wonderful scents come from the kitchen.
Try quilting on pumpkin fabric, it's far less fattening than pie.....although today I am shopping for ingredients for homemade pumpkin pie, my mother's recipe, including the pie crust. It's my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner.
Keep quilting, your work gets better every day!
