Happy Friday!

The morning after...yes, we enjoyed our Thanksgiving feast yesterday - turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, carrots, wild rice, gravy, pumpkin pie....my mother cooked a delicious meal and for that we are all thankful!

I'm thankful too for all the great stitching friends I have made online since I started this blog a little more than two years ago!

Today I'm at home, enjoying a day off of work. I have lots to do - I have a newsletter to put together for EGA, a couple more exchanges to finish, well, and then there's always the laundry and other housework (it never ends!) It's still good to be at home!

Goldie sent me a note yesterday advising that she had received the Eye of the Needle exchange piece that I had stitched for her. I really liked the piece but was at a loss for how I wanted to finish it. I ended up finishing it as a pillow. Goldie also received some charts from her wishlist.

The pillow came out great. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving and thanks for the info on the Fair and Square projects. I love the idea of a quilt. Enjoy your time off.
