    Since I had my Thanksgiving dinner Saturday I had the whole day to sew-yes all day. I made four table runners and got two of them quilted. I cut these out by hand. Every square, triangle and strip. I wish I could do pictures but I am not able to right now. I am on a borrowed computer and do not have things all hooked up. I am telling you I made one up in my go-as you-cut style and made it for my daughter. It is in greens and a yellow/orange Afternoon Tea print and it is beautiful. If they were my colors she would never know I made it for her.

    I used to sew and quilt, but I have had two real bad head injuries from falls in the past 5 years and things are slowly coming back to me. I knew when I started quilting that I had done it before. I just knew how to handle the material and all too easily. It was so much fun.

    Good to hear you are able to go back to your quilting. When I had chemo. it damaged some of my nerves. I really think that quilting has been good physical therapy for the nerve damage. I still drop things but I have been having an easier time of sewing. It definitely is good to keep using what we have a good chance of improving what has been damaged.

    Oh wow! It must have been nice to sew all day. I started having withdrawals being away from home today. I was wishing I had taken some things with me to work on.

    We had our Thanksgiving yesterday (Wed.) and I had all day to sew too...but I didn't. Watched football and messed around on the computer. A REAL day off for me.

    I too was able to sew today as my daughter was doing the turkey dinner at her house for us in the evening...Great day in all, except when we got ready to leave her house my car was covered in a dusting of wet snow, bummer!! I moved from MI to TN to get away from the white stuff. Happy Thanksgiving to all

    Yay Donna! Doesn't it feel good to do something so beautiful and have a whole day to do it? I envy you just cutting and sewing--I'm too anal-I have to have some direction. Glad your sewing memory is back and hope all will be. Today is my day to sew all day-machine this am and then hand sewing in front of the tv with football on later. Anxious to see pics when you get a chance.

    Donna, so happy to hear that things are coming back to you! I am green with envy with the thought of a whole day to yourself to sew.

    Took my quilting with me to DD's house for Thanksgiving. Got a little bit done on it, not much. Did get a chance to show a friend who was also there how to use my sewing machine that's at DD's house, which was a treat. She's going to borrow it next week for a project she's working on.

    That's great TN Donna about your skills coming back to you. When/if you are able, if you ever get things hooked up, I would love to see pics of your stuff. I know I would never be able to post pics if my husband didn't transfer the pics from the camera to the computer.
