Thanksgiving and on to Christmas. . . . . .

I am happy to report a wonderful Thanksgiving. My Dear Daughter and her 3 children, as well as my friend of 32 years, her daughter and son-in-law and 17 mo. old granddaughter all joined us for a yummy potluck dinner. Delicious! And so easy. [Everyone had left and the dishwasher was running by 5:30pm]

I started with some cleaning in the sewing room. Look at that - you can see the table top. Meanwhile I have been putting needle to fabric, in a variety of ways. Finished attaching a label to the Christmas quilt and to the baby quilt. Did some outline quilting on a flannel Christmas 'cheater' for my daughter's house. My LQG has an annual raffle quilt and I took a turn at selling tickets at a fairly new quilt store. (Lovely fabrics)

We follow Women's Basketball at the University of Washington. They held their annual Thanksgiving week-end tournament and I'm happy to report that UW won. Yeah team! Today was the Seattle Marathon and I was recruited by a friend and competitor to be a Course Monitor. So I clapped and cheered and encouraged the walkers and runners on to the final mile. It was cold (low 40's) but sunny which helped everyone's mood. Tomorrow it's back to Stone Soup Quilts. Life is good.
