Happy Thanksgiving!

It's a crazy week for us here - two and a half days of work and then hitting the road to go see my Honey's sister and my great aunt over the holiday, and hopefully coming home early enough to do some holiday decorating.  I finished with binding and label on the Prayer Flag quilt that I'm giving to my great aunt last night and will try to get a photo today to amend this post with.  But I don't want to hold things up.

I brought home four sewing machines from Mom's sewing room this past weekend - I didn't realize she had a Bernina Activa 140 as well.  I posted on Craigslist (local to Dad) for the free fabric stash.  I hope I get a taker.  Nothing so far.  Selling the machines will take more organizing than I can do right now.

I don't really post much about giveaways and sales, but here are a few worth mentioning.  First, the giveaway from Lily Pad Quilting includes a tutorial for a star block she named after my own little town and our star.  You could win a Go Baby or precuts from Green Fairy Quilts.  It's open until Monday so you have a little time.  Second, SewCalGal made a great post about Black Friday quilt sales.  If you're in the market for some goodies, or want to drop a hint to someone who is(!), check it out!  Burgundy Buttons has Terrain on sale through tomorrow and I've already forwarded that tidbit to my Honey since it's on the list I sent him!

I hope that it's a safe and happy holiday for you and your family if you're somewhere that celebrates American Thanksgiving.


  1. What sewing machines are you selling? You didn't want to keep any of them? I get a bit nervous about if something happened to me...what would happen to all my LUVED sewing things? I have 7 sewing machine. Maybe I should "will" them to people?

    Thanks for the info on the giveaways...


  2. Hi Annie, and thanks for visiting! I already have two machines I love - and a third for my stepdaughters if they want to sew - so these extra four are really unnecessary temptations. I don't need a serger and don't want to be sidetracked into learning the embroidery machine. If my mom had willed them like she had thought about, maybe we wouldn't be in this predicament!!
