TA DA!!!

Last June my youngest granddaughter, Noelle, was here for an extended vacation. 

While here, she designed her very own quilt using her Leapster Pad. 
OK, so it's blurry; but, you get the idea. 
Showing it to me she said "Grandma, I want you to make this for me with six snowmen".  What would you do?  Yes of course you would.  Her birthday is December 16.  So with a little quilter's license, here is Miss Noelle's Quilt.
Maybe she needs EQ for Christmas.

Quilt happy,

Definition of THANKSGIVING
: the act of giving thanks
: a prayer expressing gratitude
a: a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness
Today is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of the year.  It is all about family and being thankful.  It is also when most of us take a moment and reflect on for what we are thankful.  I have so much for which to be thankful; but, here are 10 on my list.

10.         My first cup of coffee in the morning that helps me wake up and begin a new day.
9.            Life’s challenges as they as give me the opportunity to become a better person.
8.            Rainbows because they follow the storm and offer a promise of beauty.
7.            My home that gives me comfort and peace.
6.            My hobbies that keep my mind active and challenged.
5.            Emotions of all kinds for they let me know how alive I am.
4.            Pets for teaching me patience and giving me joy.
3.            Best friends for being there for me without even asking.
2.            My family that offers me more pleasure than I could ever imagine. I  love you so much.
1.            You for being here right now.

I noticed on my Yahoo homepage, that "Trending Now" was Clean Out Your Fridge. So, intrigued, I had to click on it.  That's when I found out it is "National Clean Out Your Fridge Day".  Seriously, it is.  I tried to ignore it; I really did.  I have plans to sew today.  My granddaughter's birthday is next month and she wants a quilt.  But, I went and peeked inside.

I had been having trouble finding things.  So, I did it.

Deciding to clean out the fridge:  most of the morning.
Time to actually clean out the fridge:  30 minutes
Feeling of accomplishment:  priceless

Now off to work on that quilt.

Quilt happy,

I'm sending this quilt off to Florida today for a raffle.  It is called Mediterranean Neutrals. 

Hope it makes some money for your charity Jolene.

I was lucky enough to be invited by Robin to help with her booth, Robin Quilts, Etc.  We had a great time.  I usually forget to get pictures.  But, I have a few.
