Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.

Wow, from year to year how do I forget how busy this time of the year gets?  I have begun Christmas shopping and our weather has been so pretty that I have been trying to get some things done in the yard - had to skip that most of the fall because of my injuries - and it's time to get the house cleaned up before these major holidays.  I even did a bit of gardening..  I planted some garlic a few weeks ago and it is growing so well!
As for what I am working on in the quilting/craft world, I am finishing up a crocheted Christmas stocking and working on a round for the Round Robin I am in.  I also completed the last of the Birthday Blocks for the Quilt Forum Birthday Block Exchange and made some Christmas napkins.  There are so many quilting projects to get back to --- not for a few more days though.  Maybe Sunday will be a good day for sewing!
I'll post some pictures of what I am working on soon.

November Update

I didn't realize so much time had gone by since I posted the last time.  Things have been busy here.  Our new puppy, Sydney, is still doing great.  Here she is with her most recent toy - Angry Bird.

She has been here less than 3 weeks, but both my husband and I think she has grown since she got here.  Her behavior is still excellent.  You get to laugh at her now and then.  She had been barking at animals on the TV whether they were dogs or dinosaurs, but today it seems she finally decided they weren't real and quit barking - or maybe we just told her "Quiet" enough times.  When someone came to the door last week, he said she looks like an Australian Cattle Dog and she may have some of that breed in her.  It is always fun to try to guess what she might be!
I have been busy on the quilting front.  What I have been working on lately is a Christmas gift though so it is top secret like in Santa's Workshop.  I can't show a picture.
I love the temperatures this time of the year, but I don't like that it gets dark so early.  It seems like by 6:30 p.m. you start to think it is time for bed.
I'll be back soon to discuss a book or pattern!  Have a good week.
