A Quick Finish

 Made for a friend of mine . . . aren't these the most delicious fall colours?  

I am loving the way they turned out.

mmm . . . they match my new kitchen

This certainly has been a productive weekend. 

Guess I better go and clean my house now!

Still Swooning

Finished Block #3 for my Swoon quilt

Hard to decide which one is my favourite.

The weather has been nice this weekend.
It was a different story this past week though, 
 we got our first snowfall!!!

Enjoy your weekend!

As we express our gratitude, 
we must never forget that 
the highest appreciation is not to utter words, 
but to live by them. 

- John F Kennedy

What a wonderful day thanksgiving is! 
It allows us to take a look at the past year and add up all of the many blessings we have. 

What are you thankful for?

Although this year has been hard in many ways,

I have my health,
a wealth of friends,
a wonderful family,
two wonderful grown children,
plenty of food for each day,
a great job,
and a place to lay my head at night.

The greatest and most significant thing that I am grateful for is the love that the Lord has for us.  

It is unconditional, vast and wide.  

Yummy turkey dinner that mom cooked.  Can you tell that I like gravy?


Good old standby - pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
No dieting on this day!

I have been admiring the Swoon Block for a long time now.  

Today I decided to tackle putting one together and I am in love.  

Can hardly wait to make another.

Happy thanksgiving all!
