I Am Thankful . . . . .



I've been enjoying this quilt the whole month of November.

I made this quilt for the back of my red couch, but it hangs over the bannister instead. Once I finished this quilt I realized it didn't look good on the red couch, too much red, the one quilt I actually made for that couch and it didn't match. Oh well, almost all of my other quilts do look good on that couch.

I figured I better share it now, in a few days this quilt will be packed up until Fall of 2012!

This is lifetime quilt number 51 that I named "Eat More Pie"

Because of this panel on the back.

I plan to be eating some pie tomorrow, I'll be celebrating a little holiday here in the states we call Thanksgiving. If it's not Thanksgiving where you live, I suggest eating some pie anyway, any day is better with pie.

I would like to let you know, as I reflect on my many blessings, you, my blogging friends, add so much to my life. Thank you for making my small life so much fuller.


I'm taking the rest of the week off, my baby girl is home and I plan to enjoy every minute of our time together.



I'll be back on Monday!

Best wishes for a safe and happy week, to you and your family, wherever you may be!

  5. Thelma, Thanks for sharing your beautiful "Eat More Pie", I love it! I do believe I will take your advice...I am making some pies today and certainly plan to eat a little bit of it tomorrow. My hubby and I have been trying hard to maintain a 'heart healthy' lifestyle since his heart attack (at just 58 yrs old) two years ago. He has lost 40 lbs and I have lost 30... But the Holidays are a time when we try to be careful about portion size, but we do go ahead and enjoy all the great foods and treats. Pie is at the top of my hubby's list, potatoes and gravy are at the top of mine! (we cut out potatoes completely for over a year, now they are a real treat). I'm so glad to hear your daughter is there to share in your Thanksgiving festivities. We are cooking this year too and my youngest daughter and her two sons (22 yrs and 17 yrs) will be sharing our day. We are looking forward to the family time. I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful and I also want to thank you for all the enjoyment you have given me by sharing your beautiful projects and treasures with us through the year. I'm pretty much a hermit so my blogland quilting friends are a true blessing to me. Hugs...

  14. I really like your quilt but, why will it not come out in the Fall of 2011? It really is too pretty to stay packed up for 2 whole years. Have a great time with your child.

  15. Have a wonderful week with your girl, your DH, Cooper and the "village". :)

    I have to tell you that I'm kind of jealous of your sign. That's the coolest! I'm trying to figure out what it says under the pink flower. If I had a door on my workroom, I would have to steal this idea. Not the sign though... it would be easier to just get my own sign than scratch your name off this one. :)

    See you when you get back!
