Happy Thanksgiving...

The rolls are baked

The apple pie is ready... 

The stuffing is made, the green beans cleaned...all that I'll have to do tomorrow is bake some cranberry bread, make mashed potatoes and gravy, and, oh yeah...roast that turkey!  We're staying home this year...the kids are looking forward to a quiet day filled with football and feasting.  We have another reason to stay home this year...

Daisy was spayed on Monday and she needs rest and relaxation so she can heal. Poor puppy, she does NOT like that collar around her head! But every time I take it off, she starts licking her incision, so on it stays.

I wish for you, my friends, a blessed Thanksgiving, filled with family, friends and all good things. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday Andrew!

Today is Andrew's 23rd birthday...I can't believe he's that old. Seems like yesterday that he was just a little guy, toddling around the house with his stuffed giraffe.  As you can tell from the picture, he might have grown up, but he's still a little kid inside!  He and his girlfriend Dayna dressed as Ash and Misty from Pokemon for Halloween.  Andrew, I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

It's the small things...

That make me happy! Today a customer stopped by with a copy of a just published book for me...Vivacious Curvy Quilts by Dianne S. Hire.

Inside was her quilt "Life on the Technicolor Highway", which I had quilted for her.  Here it is, on page 19...and not only mentions Jane as the creator, but me as the quilter! This is my first appearance in a book, although I did have a mention in McCall's quilting years ago, when I quilted a quilt for Michelle Scott.

But I guess it's always a thrill to see your name in print!!!
