Almost Time to Say Goodbye to November from Bayou Quilts

I've been behind on almost everything this month.  Too many events packed into too short a time.  To make things even more hectic, about a week before Thanksgiving, I was working in the garden and pulled a muscle in my back.  Somehow this worked torture on the sciatic nerve in my right leg.  

I moaned, groaned, whined and spent about 4 days with Aspercreme, Advil, my trusty heating pad, and my Kindle.  By Thanksgiving it was nothing more than a slight ache.  Whew!  

We had a great get together, starting on Wednesday, with too much food--snacks, gumbo, cornbread sandwiches ...

Thanksgiving 2018 Out Takes from Quilts + Color

Some of the members of my Florida family really enjoy having their picture taken. I'm not so sure Madeline enjoyed the ride as much as her big brother did at the same age.
Not every grandparent has a Merry Go Round on their dining room table for their grandbabies!
Tucker is the only GUY I know who LOVES to have his picture taken and his beautiful sister is enjoying the photo shoot!

Drew arrived late but there was still food for him.


 Greatlookingfamily….and there’s that guy who loves to have his picture taken again! He’ll never ...

The Never-Ending Reindeer Project from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I've been making these little rascals for over 20 years and each year I proclaim that I will no longer make them:


Yet, here I am... once again... knee deep in yarn scraps and wiggly eyes...

Each year I am certain there cannot possibly be anyone who I haven't gifted one and each year I am proven wrong, although this year this herd is headed back with our girl. Ours girl's neighbors and co-workers will hopefully get a kick out of them. Honestly, if I've made a dozen for 24 years that's 288 reindeer.

Thankful from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

I'm thankful for so many things all the time. I thank the Lord every night just for bringing me to this day.

Thankful also doesn't even begin to describe my feelings at this time of year. I love autumn (even if ours was unseasonably warm and wet), and I love being able to have good times with my family (we're really lucky in that department). This year, though, I'm standing on the precipice of changes for myself and the Hubster, and it's making me see things in a new light.

I've apparently made my ...

Thank you! from Kitty and Me Designs

As the Thanksgiving weekend comes to a close, I want to take a moment to say thank you to all the wonderful people I've met online over the years!!

Since 1996, I've met so many wonderful, creative people!  People who love to stitch as much as I do.  Cross stitchers and crazy quilters, art quilters, embroiderers.....I'm always amazed at the creativity I see online every day.

And to everyone who has supported me, Kitty And Me Designs and Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine, a huge thank you goes out to all of you. 

I wish everyone a ...

the weekend of thanksgiving . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

This is going to be a culmination post ... covering the long weekend which isn't really over, because we get Monday, too -- but that will be for another day's post.

Wednesday was pie and prep day. I love pie and prep day! This year's was particularly good because I found the *best* pecan pie recipe. Pecan Pie is Todd's favorite, and for years I've struggled to find a recipe that felt no-fail and tasted delicious.  
This year, thanks to Genius Kitchen and PCrocker, my search is over. I admit that I made a few changes right ...

good fortune from Making A Lather

We spent a Thanksgiving without family this year. It was hard for me. I must have telegraphed that to a friend, who invited hubby and I for an evening meal with their family. It was fun catching up with her children and grandchildren. We hadn't seen them in a few years. I am always surprised when other's children grow up so fast. The food was sooo good. I think she served every Thanksgiving food wish I could have had. All to often, I think, we keep to our families at Thanksgiving. Maybe, I am at an age where ...

Turkey..Pie..Nap…Oh MY! from Lisa H Calle's Blog


The sun is shining brightly in Hilton Head where I prepare to tee off for a round of golf; my second love in life. But before I venture into the rolling, green hills composed of 19 holes I wanted to wish all my fellow followers a Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope your plans include eating WAY too much turkey, indulging in a few holiday drinks and slumbering peacefully as Mr. Tryptophan slips you into nappy land.  Those are my intentions for the next 24 hours!

     What would Thanksgiving be without including Black Friday and Cyber Monday? So let’s whoop it ...

Happy Thanksgiving!! from From My Carolina Home

Thanksgiving Day is here, and for me it is the best day of the year.  Today is a day of fun, watching the Macy’s parade on TV in my jammies, while a Breakfast Casserole bakes in the oven filling the air with a savory aroma of sausage, cheese, onions and eggs.  I do wish that the CBS would go back to showing their Thanksgiving across America parade show that would cover the Chicago parade, the Disney parade, and the one in Hawaii.  I liked seeing all the variety.

But, the Macy’s parade is the giant for the day ...

Thanksgiving Giveaway! from Tea Rose Home

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last updated my blog. I posted a few things on Instagram in the last few weeks, because it is much easier to shoot a picture and post it with my phone, but the truth is that I wasn't in much of a mood to do any social media after the surgery. I wonder if I was going through a mini depression of sorts. The first couple of weeks after I came home, I stayed in bed most of my time and either slept, read, or watched TV ...

Monday, Wash Day! from From the Strawberry Patch...

You remember the old chore for each day-of-the-week philosophy adhered to by our grandmothers? It was so popular it was even stitched onto dishtowels. Monday is Wash Day. Well, maybe not here. Not today. Last week, also on Monday, our trusty washer konked out. Mr. Goodneedle quickly attended to the problem. Armed with tools to disassemble the machine and a volt-meter in hand to test electrical

holiday and hexie prep . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

So, after all the Pick a Pumpkin posts, this was a relatively downright quiet week! At least on the blog.  Nothing doing in real life!

Thursday I spent the day with the girls. It was snowing (?!?!?) when I left the camp, and still flurrying forty minutes later when I arrived at their house, on the other side of the county. And very cold.  So much so that Jason turned on the fireplace! The older girls had asked me to bring three things:  gum, watermelon, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  So like any obliging, decent, loving grandmother, I did. Of ...

Thanksgiving Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

I love Thanksgiving, it is my favorite day of the year!  We usually don’t have company on the day, but we enjoy extending the holiday through the weekend before getting to the December frenzy.  On Saturday, we are having a small dinner party of six, so of course that means a pretty table.  I set it up early so I can enjoy it all week.

Place settings begin with the autumn color placemats I use frequently this time of year.  I still love the gold flatware with autumn colors so those are used again too.  I decided not to ...

Scrap Control Update from Baby Boomer Quilting Bee

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I'm sharing my little turkey (still needs feet).  A tiny dent in the scraps.

A "Quilt for Kids" start - rainbow colors of 6 1/2" squares.  A couple of borders and then done.

Another "Quilts for Kids"  using blocks left over from a Family Quilt made in 2015 -- just enough for a small quilt and reduction of orphan blocks.  My goal for "Quilts for Kids" (Baton Rouge Chapter) is almost done - most are quilted, bound and ready for delivery.  Pictures as soon as the last binding goes on.  

Next goal .... Our guild was introduced ...

Thanksgiving Projects and Ideas from From My Carolina Home

Every year at this time, I go through the some past posts that have relevance to the season.  There are so many fun things to do for Thanksgiving and the Autumn season, that I have not run out of ideas yet.  But, new readers may not have seen these ideas from past years, so here is a round up of some ideas.  First up, in 2014 I told a bunch of Thanksgiving stories from years gone by in Thanksgiving 101.  I love reading your stories too!

Treat Bags for Safelight from From My Carolina Home

I am at it again, LOL!!  I have too much fun with stamping and making up bags of goodies, so once again Safelight will get some fun treats, Autumn Jubilee style.  I have a bunch of white lunch size bags, so easy to decorate!  I got out stamps and stickers for some creative playing.

Treat Bags at

This time, I started with my roller and a jack-o-lantern wheel, putting a row on the left side in orange.  Using the roller guide keeps the lines straight.

I lined them up to dry while I finished rolling the rest of the bags.
