I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We celebrated the weekend before Thanksgiving with the entire family. After our dinner, we cleared the table and played a new game called Scrawl. I laughed so hard, I actually hurt the next day!
Here's an update on Country Sunshine.
I've added a few more blocks to my design wall along with the sashing.
We brought our granddaughter back to the cabin with us for a few days. Her request was a walk through Calaveras Big Tress State Park. This park is only three miles from our cabin and we love to go for walks through the big trees. While walking in the park, we saw Madeleine, a quilter from Livermore and her family! Small world.
Thanksgiving is a time for reflection on the loved ones who are no longer joining us at our Thanksgiving table.
While I was out walking with Mazey yesterday, I got this hair-brained idea to move most of the furniture around in the cabin to make room for the Christmas Tree. Mr. Joe hates it when I start a sentence with, "I have an idea......." I decided to put the tree in the dining room, and the dining table in the great room. I love the reflection of the tree in all of the windows! This was an unintended consequence which absolutely thrilled me.
I'll resume my Wilder Moving and Storage job today and work on decorating the cabin during the football games. Half of my decorations are at the city house, and the remainder are here. I'm not quite sure what I have until I open the boxes, and I'm going to make-do with what I have.
One thing this move taught me was that we have way toooooo much stuff that we can live without. Simplify, simplify, simplify is going to be my new mantra. Except when it comes to quilting.
My little Etsy store has been keeping me busy filling orders. It has been fun, and I think I've picked up a few more Sew'n Wild Oaks followers to add to my groupie list.
Have a great weekend!
