Happy Thanksgiving

Yesterday was warm and beautiful, we got the leaves all taken care of and yard was looking great, So snow if you must!

We are tuck safely inside watching football (yes I like it)
It was a weekend we were not committed to going anywhere or doing anything. It was heaven! I hit a church sale and breakfast out with my sweet friend ahhhh...

This is a very bad picture of my front door. Yesterday was so nice
I hit the woods for some mixed greens and filled my 1.00 basket from last year.
I saved the bow, frosty twigs, and red berries from last year so free!

My sweet friend and I also got to hit the thrift this week.
I found four more on at dusk and off at dawn window candles.
I now have enough for the house.  I Love them and four for 2.00 is a deal. Last year I found them for 1.00 a piece! I think they sell for 10.00 a piece.

This week was the gathering of my women's group.
It was our annual Thanksgiving. The host cooks the turkey and the rest of us bring the fixings. It is such a wonderful group of women.
When David was so sick they all descended on my house cutting back gardens, raking, and stacking wood. My daughter was here when they came, she was so amazed at how wonderful they were. 
We have been meeting 13 years. We try monthly but it doesn't always happen. We celebrate each other which is such a joy.
Each time we meet we put a few bucks in the thankful basket and tell what we are thankful for. At the end of the year the money is donated to a worthy cause.
I think there were 5 of us missing so a large group.
I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful!
Ours is very quiet, we treat ourselves to Lobster.
We are expecting company for the weekend though so it will all be a blur from here to Christmas.

I've Been busy..

I have been working on a tree skirt for my daughter.
I decided to do it in my hand writing and just go for it.
The pattern is just for a table piece. Now for all the stitching.

A girl I know from town dropped off some wool from her mother.
This beautiful blanket was in it, it's from April Cornell. I have washed it and now it resides on my chair for the chilly nights to nice to cut up.
My cousin's daughter got married over the weekend. It was very fun to go to Maine and see most of my family. And Dance and dance!
So I would like you to guess which one is the Maine Game Warden, and which one is the Maine State Trooper. Their vows included helping to shine each others boots :)

I got to shop a little on the way there, I got a cute vintage santa for cheap and the best smelling candle I have ever had.
Rum Raisin.
I need help! I just had my computer fixed and google chrome was put on I can not seem to figure how to post on blogger from my computer any help out there for me?

Oh To Sleep...

I  have not been sleeping well at all lately. It is an issue I have had off  and on
For awhile. I have done everything I have read about. I walk every day,
I have lost weight,no chocolate or caffeine after noon. I drink sleepy tea, read before bed,etc etc
Friday night I was up watching Christmas movies
Unil 4 am!

So I have gotten a lot done. I am making a tree skirt 
For my daughter.

Here is the pattern I am adapting. I do not like hand stitching and I am not good at it  I love seeing  other people's work .

I have hooked a little between lamb toungs.

And this is sweet B's school picture. 
I asked her who the beautiful girl in the picture was She said it's me see we have the same glasses.
Love that sweet girl.
Have a  great week

If The Witch's Shoe Fits...

Not to bad for 1.00 shoes, some spray paint and some black glitter.

So if it fits wear it!

And this would be the rest of the gang.
my son in law is Elvis but I think he has it on sideways.
My daughter is medusa, the hungry caterpillar, and husband
in nose and glasses with a cane to swing. Very cold but lots of candy. 

I found a hook at the thrift for 1.00 I don't find them much anymore.

And tis the season to start hooking for Christmas!

Most of the foliage is gone but still very pretty. We are going back into the warm weather for a couple of days. I will take all I can get.
Have a great week.
