Happy Thanksgiving

Dinner

Ode to Thanksgiving

May your stuffing be tasty

May your turkey plump,

May your potatoes and gravy

Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious

And your pies take the prize,

And may your Thanksgiving dinner

Stay off your thighs!



Have you ever left them in the turkey

Quilt Tips

Quilt Storage:  When you make a quilt for family or friends, present it in a pillowcase with a  leftover block sewn on it. A king-size pillowcase is large enough to store linens and shams along with the quilt.

Do you have any tips that help you as you quilt or organize, etc. to share with others on this blog?  We would love to hear from you. (By WE, I mean everyone who reads this blog!  Come on, let’s make this a fun place to visit where you’ll always wonder what is new from the readers!!)
