Wednesday Update

Well, I am preparing to cook a large meal tomorrow for Thanksgiving.  There will only be 9 of us but it seems like the same amount of work no matter how many there are at the table. I am hoping to post a Thanksgiving story. It is a true tale of when my son was in Denmark for a year celebrating Thanksgiving. It is always one we retell year after year.

I do admit to getting a bit itchy to decorate for Christmas. December 1st and the first Advent is Sunday! The spare bed is holding the quilts ready for me to make the change from fall to winter.

There were a few things I need to get rid of that have been in a pile since we carpeted my room. 
I bought this hooked rug kit years ago. The burlap made a mess, but it is obvious by looking at the primitive angel's face I didn't quite get the hang of it. Leave a comment if you want it and I'll send it to you. The bag has all the strings needed to complete the angel rug.

This box is full of cowboy scraps. (GONE!) You readers generously shared with me and now I'm done with them.

This isn't a drawing, first person to give me a shout out, gets them.

If you are a no reply commenter I will not try to track you down. Go to this post and make the changes necessary to contact you.

PS, Wendy, P2P you are a no-reply commenter.

  8. I'm making dinner for a few more than 9 but most of them are children. There will only be 13 of my 32 member family at my house. I'm waiting until after Monday to start decorating for Christmas. I almost have enough Christmas Quilts to cover every bed. I'm leaning toward doing the New Bonnie Hunter Mystery in Christmas fabrics. Are you playing along?

  21. Happy Thanksgiving!
    A couple ? for you, a blog expert. Am I a no-reply? I recently did the Tuesday link-up with Freemotion by the River. Since then an anonymous person has left comments all over my blog posts. They appear fine within my blog, yet when I read the comments on my email account they are full of Toronto spam?? What do you do with anonymous replies? Thanks!!
