Fun Friday

Happy Black Friday to you all!
 
I hope your day is filled with pleasantness on the crazy retail day! 
Take a deep breath and show others gratitude!
 
30 Days of Thanks~Day 23
I am thankful that I don't necessarily have to be out and about early this morning on this Black Friday!  I remember the days of getting up early when my son was little.  My friends and I had to go get the latest and greatest for all our boys!  Now, I am glad that certain clothes and money are requested by my college son!  :)

Have a very Happy Friday!

I am Thankful to God to have my family and friends to share all the blessings in my life!
 
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

Working Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!
 
It's Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the countdown to Turkey Day has begun!  I have all the fixins for dinner...turkey, 10lbs of potatoes(I will make at least 5lbs of mashed potatoes, because I have have a 19 year old mashed potato freak-LOL), gravy, broccoli, cranberry sauce, sourdough rolls and pumpkin pie!  I am just feeding the three of us, but when you have a college student who loves to eat, you have to fix a lot!  I don't fix anything ahead of time, but I might make the pumpkin pie today.  I am ready...let's do this!
 
I am going to be working on Christmas cards today for my sister to finish those up and then get some sewing done.  I realized yesterday, I have a few things I need to take care of quickly to get done before the end of the month!
 
What are you doing today?  Are you crafting, sewing, cooking or just relaxing before the big day?
 
30 Days of Thanks~Day 21
Today I am thankful for having all my grocery shopping done and being able to relax before I start cooking tomorrow!  It is nice not to have to run to the grocery store for any last minute things.
 
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Tuesday Talk

Happy Tuesday!
 
I hope you day has started out well!  I am off to do a little grocery shopping to get the last few things for Thanksgiving dinner and also to do a little fabric shopping!  I need to look through my solid stash as I am getting ready to start a new project!  Fun, fun!
 
Today, let's talk about solid fabric!  I love solids!  My favorite are the Robert Kaufman Kona Solids.  I love the Kona Color Swatch card because it is a really great tool to use to match up your solids to prints.  I use solids quilt often these days and love to use the by themselves and with a little splash of pint fabric.
 
Here is a wall hanging I did this summer out of solids.  I know you have seen it before, but I wanted to show the simplicity and beauty of just using solids.  This is the Kona Coal, Bright Pink, Aqua and Chartreuse.
 
 
Do you like using solids since that is the popular trend with the modern quilting movement?
 Do you use a lot of solids by themselves or so you like to use them with prints?
Let me know what you think!
 
30 Days of Thanks~Day 20
I am thankful for solid fabrics.  The use of solids has brought me into another whole side of quilting that is refreshing and interesting.  Solid fabrics have opened up a whole new world of quilting to me to explore and have fun with!
 
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
