It's Thanksgiving here in Canada and it's one of my favourite holidays. Other than making the turkey dinner, there's not much else to prepare; no heavy decorating to do, no gifts to buy and wrap. Not that I mind any of these things, but with three kids and hosting duties, the other holidays get kind of noisy and crazy around my house. Thanksgiving, for me, is a quieter time to spend with family and friends and be thankful for all the blessings we have. Like many families, we have a tradition whereby we go around the table during Thanksgiving dinner and share what we are thankful for.
This year, my sister and brother-in-law are hosting so we're in Burlington, Ontario (about an hour-ish southwest of Toronto). Road trip, yay! We've had a wonderful time and I am more stuffed than the turkey! Thank goodness for stretchy pants. ;)
For a little quilty tidbit, this is a wallhanging, called Charlotte's in the Pumpkin Patch, that I finished this past spring in honour of the fall season. This was my second foray into thread painting -- pretty happy with the results, but I still have a lot to learn!
