Happy Thanksgiving.....

This is the frost I woke up to yesterday morning.... it was cooolllld.... but today it has warmed up to above freezing, so Magpie and I can have our daily walk. We did walk yesterday in the afternoon, but the wind was biting. This view is out my front door..... As it is Thanksgiving weekend end Canada, I want to wish all my friends a happy "turkey" day... I am thankful for my wonderful family and friends, and the new life I have found.

I made another pumpkin wallhanging when I taught this class earlier in the week. I like to "quilt" along with my students.... sometimes I end up with a few of the same things! I like this darker colorway... and I added a crow on the pumpkin...

While I was working away on this little wallhanging... I decided I needed a little "Autumn" jacket of some kind... so I used my applique pieces and made a jacket out a sweatshirt. I really enjoyed making this... took an afternoon....

Thought for The Day
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
How cool that it is a month earlier.
I wonder why?
The wall hanging and the jacket are very nice. You are always creating interesting things.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Weekend Debbie.
I really love that wall hanging and the jacket with the pumpkins on. You will need the jacket with all that frost and snow you get there!
Next time you visit my blog there is an award there for you.
