    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Rodney. Are you "over it" yet? Seems like it if you can post such good wishes on this cold and rainy Thanksgiving morning.
    Make every day count for something!

    And a Happy Thanksgiving right back at you and all the others on the QB! Eat, drink, be merry, and enjoy family and friends if you are with them. Tomorrow will be a whole other story!

    Over what? I haven't been on here as much the last several days but that's just because I've had a bunch of other stuff going on. Some of it I was actually sewing, though not quilting. I got it in my melon head that I would make a skirt for Olivia without starting with a pattern. Olivia's 11 and it seems like all the patterns out there are either for teenagers and adults or for little kids. Nothing for the tweens. This was the inspiration: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/a...nkle-by-wenlan
    It will have the pleats up front and a wide waistband but that's where the similarity ends. Olivia wants a full length skirt.
    I've got a muslin made that seems to fit well enough so I will be starting the actual skirt this weekend. It's been a lot of fun figuring out all the little details that need accounting for before it can actually go together.

    Lucky Olivia! Sounds like a fun project. It is good to see you posting. I'll admit I was a little worried.

    Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!

    A very happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm thankful today for my children, who are all happy, healthy and close enough for me to bother them!

    Happy Thanksgiving from South Dakota!

    I cooked up a very large meal for me and DH - and now I'm done cooking for the weekend. We'll have leftovers until we are sick of turkey - then the outside cats will get what is left of the bird.

    I'm giving my White 670 a workout today - sewing about 100 yards of ribbon on the vestments I volunteered to make for the chapel at the school where I work. Four colors, four sizes . . . in my mind that as 16 and very doable. What I missed was the "three of each size" part They are quite fun - ribbon shirts using batik fabric. AND I get to keep all the scraps - cream, green, purple and red. A great addition to stash!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Happy thanksgiving everyone! We are waiting for a flight to visit the grands in puyallup. Happily alaska airlines has a direct flight from new Orleans. A little drive from home but the direct flight is worth it. We will have our thanksgiving meal tomorrow.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all US friends from southern Ontario

    We have a big tradition here at our house every year at this time where all of our male family members plus a few of their friends all come to stay for a few days. They all get up early Thanksgiving Day to go to the Detroit Lions game - I'm the "on call" designated driver & Yes they won today!!!! Go Lions!!

    Well, it's no longer Thanksgiving Day and is now Black Friday. After the big Cajun turkey meal, these two parents/grandparents/great-grands came back home at 3 PM to the quiet (and the football games for DH). I had a long winter's nap of almost 3 hours. So here I sit at 1:35 in the AM. I've done my laundry, etc. I hope all had a great day with family and/or friends. Our complete immediate family was together except for one son (who had visited earlier in the morning).
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Happy Thanksgiving! We had just a small dinner with myself, DH & my father-in-law, which is our normal tradition. Brother-in-law and his new wife will be in town Monday, we'll do a second "Thanksgiving" dinner at a restaurant with them. (We'll travel and visit with my side of the family and DH's Mom & Gran on Christmas Eve.)

    Today I'm working as usual, weird to see so much traffic on the road at 5:30 and so many shops with all their lights on! Usually I pretty much have the whole town to myself at that hour, LOL.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for all my new QB friends.

    Had a nice day yesterday at my daughter's house in Connecticut - two out of three kids' families - one daughter's family lives in Colorado, so we just had the East coast bunch. Here's the gang (that's me in back)!Name:  image.jpg
