Thanksgiving


There is a lot to be thankful for in my world. Today I finished my blue alpaca sweater, and wore it to a Thanksgiving feast at my Mother-in-Law's house, where the Chicago branch of the family flies in every year for food and celebration of Hanukkah. It is a bit of a dash to get food and gifts ready, but we managed it all. I made some rattatouie, which turned out to be incredibly hot, thanks to the addition of one little pepper...and some sweet potato casserole which I loved, but didn't get eaten much. I'll be having that for a few weeks, I think! It was fun to see how all the kids have grown and to try out my new sweater. Alpaca is incredibly warm, but it was a rainy dreary cold night, so I was glad to have it. Hope your day was good, too.

Hi Jeri,
You wrote a very kind note about my quilt with the theme global warming (Hot and Exhausted), thanks you so very much!
I have really enjoyed reading thru your blog, your work is very stimulating. I like your use of so many shades of blue....it is a color that perhaps frightens me a bit so it is good for me to see how
well you use it!
warm regards, Patricia
