Early Thanksgiving and One-Flower Wednesday

Encouraging Words of the Day

Thanksgiving is almost here. It's one of my all time favorite holidays. I love sharing a meal that I've prepared with my loved ones and just being together is a big plus. My daughter and family are with us this year. Each year, we have too much food left over at the end of their visit so this year, we prepared the "big meal" on Wednesday so we have more days left to finish leftovers. So from today through Sunday, its turkey and all the trimmings every day for every meal. We all love it that way. No more cooking and lots of good eating.

Yesterday we drove to Del Rio, Texas, the closest bigger town, and picked up a few things. It's a 2-hour round trip so I was able to sew two hexie flowers to show you for "One-Flower Wednesday." These flowers will be for my November partner in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." She asked for a fussy cut stripe so I hope she will like these.


We've had no luck hunting so we're off to try again.

Wishing all of you a "Happy Thanksgiving" full of love and happiness.

That is all.
