Why do I sew?

I just saw  this photo in my files and I had to post.
I had 3 projects that I wanted done today before I did my to do list for Thanksgiving.  I have it this year and I am thankful.

I was sewing for about 60 inches and I didn't realize the bobbin was empty.  Oh well

I enjoy doing hexies, I did not do this quilt but it is hand stitched.

The backing of the top quilt was too short so I had to add some fabric and just got frustrated.  I am proud of myself "got it done" and it looks great.

I needed to get 2 ornaments finished for my feather tree and 'got it done'.

 I am off to church to thank God for all of our blessings.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving, I know your kitchen will smell wonderful.

Lauritzen Botanical Gardens

A few weeks ago I took a day off and went to our gardens in Omaha, NE.  What a joy.

Such a beautiful place to visit.

Have a great week.

Veteran's Day

Thank you for your service in Vietnam dear husband.  I know it wasn't easy, love you.

Remembrance Day - World War !

Thanks Cheshire Quilter for letting me use this photo.

Remembrance Day
Last year Tower of London was decorated with thousands upon thousands of clay poppies.
You tube has a story on it.  My computer is acting weird cannot load it up.

Have a great weekend.
November 11 is Veteran's Day.

Getting Caught Up...

I have been away from my regular routine for the past 3 weeks and now I am back.  I was going to stay in my pajamas all day Monday and sew but that didn't happen but today is the day.
Getting caught up on my reading, will also view the film with Helen Mirren.  Love books about history.
Made homemade apple sauce today, so good.  I received apples from a friend's tree.
I did go out to get my last bag of veggies from CSA - got cabbage, sweet potatoes, beets and squash.
I might not get to use all the beets and squash but have no fear I can give it to the food bank.

Hope you are having a good day, I am.
