Happy Thanksgiving

This is an update on Give Thanks after 34 hours of stitching on it. It should be done Monday if not before.

Tomorrow being Thanksgiving here in USA I really was hoping to have this done but oh well. We are having a family dinner at my brothers. Well at least of those who can be there which won't be very many as most are out of state. Do you have favorite memories of past Thanksgivings? Years ago we use to go to our Grandparents and Grandma had cooked for days ahead of time. Of course us kids use to eat her candy, they got smart and hid the candy until after the meal. Then after the meal we would have a family skit it either had to be Thanksgiving related or Bible related. Either our cousin, Judy, or my sister, or I would play the piano, one of the boys would lead the singing, another would do the sermon, and we all of course had roles in the skit. Then afterwards we would draw names for Christmas. I'll talk about Christmas when that day comes. A lot of good memories from those days. Even though there won't be too many there tomorrow we will still have a good time.

Do you hit the Friday sales? My sister will be spending Thurs. night and possibly Friday at our parents. I'm going to see if Jo Ann's or Hobby Lobby are having a good sale and try to get her to take me out there. But otherwise I'm staying away from the stores on Friday even if they do have good sales.

Well Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow and until next time Happy Stitching!

Looking good! You stitch so fast:) We're making the rounds to see family tomorrow and if the sales are good enough I may hit a few shops Friday morning. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, Barb! And, Give Thanks is looking fantastic. Let us know what bargains you get if you hit the Friday sales. I'm not brave enough to attempt them. :-)
