O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Psalm 107:1

When I went to bed around midnight last night, I looked out the window and the grass was all W-H-I-T-E!!! Yikes! I know it's late November, but I am just NOT ready for that yet. Thankfully, it has all melted by this morning. Now it's just raining.

We always get together for Thanksgiving dinner at my oldest sister's house with as many siblings and their families that can make it. She lives just a half hour away for me, but others come from greater distances. It's really a great time and everyone contributes to the meal, sharing in the preparation and making the work lighter. My contribution is normally cheesecake and green bean casserole. I made the cheesecake last night and will do the other this morning, wrap it up to keep it warm and join everyone for the noon meal.

After the big meal is all cleared away and cleaned up, we settle in for some crafting. We're making apple cider this year and after that, I haven't figured out what to take along to work on. I went digging last night, hoping to find some quilting that was small enough to work on. I haven't worked on any quilting in such a long time, and with tapering off my stamping class schedule to just a couple a month, I've been hoping to be able to spend more time getting my hands on my fabric. So as I was digging and searching, I came across a quilt top that I'd forgotten about (one I made when I was teaching quilting - 4 years ago). But that wasn't all --- I found another which is all layered and spray-basted that I had completely forgotten I'd even made! If I didn't need a lot of room to spread out for that one, I'd take it along. Or maybe I should take it and get help tying it. Ha!

Well, enough rambling. I just wanted to come post a Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I am thankful for each one of you. Have a blessed, safe and wonder-filled day.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Melody!! What a great idea to craft after the meal!! I don't think anyone will join me in that endevor, but I might try and dig up something to do while everyone else battles over the Wii!
