Happy Thanksgiving.. to all my American friends

We celebrated our family Thanksgiving last Sunday, so today has just been Bill and me relaxing at home. He's been reading a book all day and I've been quilting - what else?! We'll be doing the last of the leftovers (except turkey- we still have plenty) for dinner tonight.
I have a tablerunner and a candle mat ready for quilting and the basketweave scrap top partially together. The tablerunner is a project from the new Stashbusters group, "Quilted Table", whose goal is simply to make a tablerunner/wallhanging, small project each month of the year. I used to make a lot of tablerunners, but since I've gotten the longarm, I make larger quilts instead. I decided to join the group and make smaller projects for gifts as needed. So today, I busted some stash and made a couple of gifts. I hope to get them quilted by next week because one I want to send to my niece for Christmas.

I'm grateful for family and friends; good health and happiness; the luxury of having a home and plenty of food on the table; and the real luxury of being able to shop my stash and spend days at a time piecing and quilting.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Sounds like you had a wonderful day! And a great way to get ahead on the homemade gift stash! (I need one of those -- I've been organizing my "for Christmas" projects today -- I think I need a sanity check!).
