Happy Thanksgiving to all...

Good Day???
Every day is a good day!!!
Today, I have choosen to change how I will shop this year.... as I am not supporting shopping on Thanksgiving!!!   I choose family over materialism!

I am thankful for all my Heros that are working on this day as they help protect us and help many people in need.  My heros are Paramedics, Firemen, Nurses, Hospital staff members, Doctors and the Police too!
Our family did Thanksgiving last Saturday and it was alot of fun... A beautiful dinner with so many.... Now the best part is Thanksgiving is more than just a family day....
I think it is a great day to invite everyone over.... and that's just what my daughter did!!!   

My Kona cotton has been calling and almost at times with me.
Sooo..... next Monday is the big day to start creating...

Don't forget to check on your neighbors too... they may say, "NO" but if they are alone....they may be so happy to just have a plate of food too...  I believe it is a day that we are truly all  just one big happy family on earth...

Sew we quilt

I really love Kona Cottons...I love how many colors they have too! This is going to be a sweet bloghop! Oh, and I will be able to use my stash, Circuit, pillow forms and a little of this and that when needed!
 I was able to find my Kona stash in the mix of my stash in a short period of time. I had envisioned days of searching and only finding it after I had ordered what I but not this time!!!!
Here is a picture of the quilt top I made from a swap years gone by.... and also a picture of my stash...

 Then to make it that more special Lorene is sending me a squishy with some of her Kona to add to my creations...  This is just going to be a great adventure!!!  An added bonus will be  my granddaughter  helping to co-creator  a few of these when can I (we) begin? Is all I can think about but I still have one Halloween project to finish.... so maybe by Friday....    Hugs

Pincushion Swap

Today is a ready, set go, kinda day!!!  Today is 11/12/13...  yeap 1, 2, 3!!!
Recently I signed up for a pin cushions swap... I will be doing this next month too!  I had Bea for the first month and she loves Red, Black and White... Oh my oh me is what I thought. But I was so thankful to have Pinterest to search and see what folks have created with wool, felt, and fleece!
I took zebra fleece and put cute little red flowers and used ground walnuts for the filling. I also saw the cutest Ninja and thought Bea needs a Ninja Quilter to help her when machine quilting. His head has a magnet inside so he can stick to the bars on the quilting machine and cheer Bea on.... It was fun stepping out of my blues, greens, and purples.  I hope they are well used and loved.....

This month Turid had my name....and she made the sweetest pin cushion... it even has sweet hearts right in the center....this sure brightened my day and will be sweet to have in my sewing room.
I also have added the link....just incase you want to two months there will be more openings too.
