We had a Happy Thanksgiving

My Thanksgiving started yesterday when I pulled the turkey out of the refrigerator and started the dinner making process. And today, as we neared the end of the cooking/preparation process, here came our daughter to consume the holiday feast.

I did get a little help. Here you see DH having cut the cranberry sauce and SIL slicing the turkey.

Look how good this all looks.

And this is what two full people look like.

And now we sit, football running, unable to move.

I had thought I would be able to get some quilting done this evening but that does not seem to be happening. So I will show you what I completed yesterday.

The front will show up on this blog after Christmas. I still need to make the label and then bind it but I am very pleased with how it has turned out.

Tomorrow I plan to quilt two rag quilts and complete labels for three finished quilts. Then, on Saturday, I plan to do nothing: it will be my birthday. I have always thought that it was the best holiday of each year.

Have a great weekend everybody!

I love the white quilt! It's so different from what you normally do! It's really beautiful! Todd and I are making another turkey this Friday because we missed not having leftovers when we were in AZ. Two Thanksgivings for us!
