Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night I attended the monthly meeting for my local chapter of EGA. It was my night to bring treats and my mom agreed to bake for me (she's a terrific baker!) We had lemon bars, pumpkin bars and date bars. They were all delicious!

I'm happy to report that our chapter made a whole shoebox full of bookmarks! I'll know the exact number next month, but there were lots of them! Many different techniques were used to create these bookmarks including, cross stitch, blackwork, hardanger, pattern darning, etc. It feels so good knowing that these bookmarks are going to make someone feel really good!

I've been stitching ornaments, but have no new pictures to post. Many of them you have seen before. Once I have them finished (completely finished!) I'll post a picture.

It's Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. We will celebrate the traditional way with turkey, stuffing, wild rice, sweet potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie. Since both Thursday and Friday are holidays for me, it makes for a nice long weekend! Unfortunately, most of it will be spent cleaning and decorating for Christmas, but that's okay.

Best wishes to everyone this week and "thanks" for visiting my blog!

My stomach is growling from reading your Thanksgiving menu - if I help clean, can I stay to eat? LOL

Delighted to hear your members came thru with a nice selection of bookmarks! Job well done to your EGA chapter.

Looking forward to seeing your 'finished' ornaments. I've post-poned everything to clean-clean-clean. Today, I'm so stiff, can barely move & may have to curl up with a book ; )

Your chapter did such a wonderful thing to make all those bookmarks. I'm sure they will be appreciated! Have a great holiday weekend!
