Back in 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians celebrated the first Thanksgiving meal which, unlike the typical Thanksgiving meal, more than likely was not made up of mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey, and pumpkin pie. How amazing is it that some 388 years later we still sit down with family and friends and keep the meal of Thanksgiving tradition alive.
We all have so much to be grateful for!! In the past few months, we have been reminded of the smallest of things that we take for granted each and every day.
For our family that stand by us and support us. We are thankful fora roof over our heads. For the gift of eyesighteven though some days our eyes feel like the one in the picture, it's a blessing to be able to see the beautiful and crazy world we live in. We are thankful for the ability to hearthe world around us. For the foodthat will be put on our tables, and those that produce it. For companionsbe them animals or people (like our family pets: black for Abby, white for Sadie, and brown for Olli) who keep us company and are always happy to see us. We are thankful forgood health. We are thankful for friendslike you who enlighten our lives. And last but certainly not least, we are thankful for the gift of freedomand all that are serving to protect it each and every day.

Our Astor Manor fabrics arrived a couple weeks ago! We've have many big ideas for the fabric and too little time to accomplish them.
The bag shown above is from the newest addition of the Better Homes and Gardens magazine featuring various bag patterns, pillows, quilts, runners, wall-hangings and wool projects. This bag was one of the funnest, and quickest bags to make. (It takes only about 1 1/2 hrs. start to finish...cutting included) as the sewing of the handles creates the outer pockets!!!! If you are looking to make quick, fun holiday bags I would suggest this one!
Until next time . . .
