On Wednesday, we got our local newspaper, filled with ads for shopping on Black Friday. I couldn’t believe that our local J.C. Penny store was open at 4am, filled with shopping specials. 4am, are they crazy?? The only time I will get up that early is for a 6am flight!
Now I like to shop as much as the next person, but no thank you. Not at 4am.
My plans for Black Friday?? Decorating the house for Christmas
oh yes, and maybe shopping for just a few things on my Christmas list. . .
From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
On this Thanksgving Day, we pause to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. You certainly have been a blessing to me.
I want to thank everyone of visiting my blog. It has been wonderful to share a bit of my life as a traveling quilter with everyone and I look forward to many, many more posts in the future.
I’ve found the coolest quilting tool! June Taylor Quilter’s Tote. What a great tote to take to class!
This has it all! The tote is a good size, 20″ x 28″ and has room for a medium sized mat, 6″ x 24″ ruler, lots of transparent pockets on the inside and two large pockets on the outside.
The best part?? It has a built-in ironing station with a 1″ grid. No need to bring a separate ironing station, it is here!
I love this tote! It makes packing for class a breeze and I will always have an ironing station with me. It comes in several different colors, a navy and a beautiful teal print.
Looks like a great Christmas gift!
CHRISTMAS CHICKADEE by David Taylor
The detail on this quilt was incredible.
There were over 400 pine needles and the light bulb alone had 5 different red fabrics.

This quilt was so realistic that I wanted to step right through the doorway!

BLUSHING TRIANGLES4 by Gloria Hansen
Gloria married her love of digital design with her love of quiltmaking in this amazing quilt.
One of the most moving exhibits was BAND OF HANDS. This exhibit of touchable quilts made in wartime Iraq features outlines of Soldier’s hands. Catherine Robers began the “band of hands” quilt project to honor the unit service members and to help her stay connected with her Solider son. Quilters across the nation donated batik fabric squares. Ms. Roberts asked the Soldiers to make imprint of their hands using the fabric and a paint color of their choice. Along with their hand prints, Soldiers penned their names. Many even wrote comments about their experiences in Iraq. A black ribbon notes Soldiers killed in battle.
While I was looking at the exhibit, a group of Marines approached the quilt exhibit. They were shown the quilts and it was very moving to see them looking at the “Band of Hands” quilts.
Recently, I discovered the pavement art of Julian Beever. His drawings are incredible! I can’t believe these images are drawn, they look too real.
