Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick note to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. We will have a small group for dinner; 8 or maybe nine of us total. But, I like to cook for 20 because I love the leftovers. It takes the guess work out of "what's for dinner?" through the weekend. I have the dinner table already set, the spinach dip made, and the green bean casserole and the stuffing ready to pop in the over. Tomorrow morning I'll put the bird in, get the sweet potatoes going (this year in the crock pot), and prepare the cranberries and rest of the appetizers. My friend Sue is bringing a fruit salad, pumpkin pie, and wine. We won't go to bed hungry, that's for sure. Oh, and I pulled out my cranberry margarita recipe and have all the ingredients lined up and ready to go. Woo hoo! One sad note, my youngest son remarked that this will be his last Thanksgiving with the family for a long, long time - in August he heads off to the Navy for a six year commitment.

On the quilting front, I now have an 8' x 8' design wall in my Sacramento studio. Very cool. I almost have my bunny hill block-of-the-month pieced together so I'll be ready on December 5th to finish the final block and get it put together. I'm working on a few Christmas gifts so can't say much about those - just in case the recipient may be reading this blog.

Good luck to all of you brave enough to venture out on Black Friday. I think I'll stay home, sew and quilt, and enjoy the leftovers.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Debbie. I'm with you, I would rather stay home and sew. Have a great weekend and don't eat too much!

  2. Happy Leftovers Debbie! You should come by the Fort this afternoon...wanna? Gayle and I will be sewing....we'd love to see you!
