Thanksgiving Week ...

Hi Friends!

Another cold day here in the Finger Lakes, but the glorious sun is visiting and the crows are plentiful and cawing their little hearts out... 


COTTONS ~ fondled these this morn, wish I had learned how to quilt ~ sigh...


NEW START... anyone else been itchin to start on some late-ish seasonal stitchin? 
Not traditional Christmas colors for sure, the background cotton reminds me of Scandinavian motifs, the Zweigart 32 ct. Dirty is a nice compliment.
Seems like maybe it needs some red, or not ~ I'll see where this takes me today...


 OUR WEEKEND... wanted to share a couple pics of a typical Fall weekend around our house ~ plz meet Mr. Sweet!
He's never been an *office* kind of guy ~ he's most happy at times like this, which makes me happy for him...

A warm and heartfelt welcome to a couple new followers, glad to have you here!

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving and a lovely holiday week.
Hope we all find a few moments for a some sweet family love, a tasty turkey sammy or two, an extra slice of pie and a few blissful stitches!

Tootles, Sue 


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too Sue!! Enjoy fingering those fabrics!! I love the colors!!

  2. Wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. Oooh can't wait to see what you do with those fabulous fabrics. Yummy!! You and your family have the best of Thanksgivings Sue and don't forget to take a nap after eating....it's a requirement.

  4. I wish I had learned to quilt, too, Sue, but, at this point, I'll sit back and admire others' quilts :)

    Hmmm...what design will adorn your pretty fabric?

    Wishing you a delightful Thanksgiving--please keep that sunshine out for me. We'll be up for a big family dinner on Wed. and Thursday :)

  5. Very nice fabrics - I especially love the top two. And I'll take the pie, everyone else can have the turkey. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
    p.s. you made my day - thank you

  6. There are days when I wish I could quilt and knit! My husband's wallet is probably glad I don't! I do love to admire the works of others though! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Remember my home is still open Friday, for a stitch in.

  8. Lovely fabrics! I can't resist buying a little fabric every now and again. Doll sized quilts are about the only ones I've made so far. :) I'm all for an extra slice of pie. :) Wishing you and your family a happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Mr. Sweet is a handsome guy! :) Love the goodies--hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
