Giving Thanks

The past couple weeks have been very busy.  One week before Thanksgiving we had a load bearing wall removed, and DH put in hardwood floors in the living room ( the family room he did several years ago) so it would all flow together.  I like to call the new room the "Ballroom".

Our Living Room before.

Our Family Room before.

What?  No more wall!

Floors of a future "Ballroom".

View from the old "blue living room".

We still need to paint, but now we have plenty of room to move around.  Thanksgiving was great with all 15 of us having somewhere to sit, and enjoy each others company.  The Ballroom will get plenty of use in the future, but for now I'm giving thanks that this part of the transformation is finished.  Painter's bring on the paint. 

Giving Thanks for Family, Friends, and good Food...

Embroidery, Sewing, Unsewing & Shopping

Well yesterday was a good, long day. Got a little sewing, and embroidery in, and got some unsewing in, and got part of my Thanksgiving Dinner shopping done. DH (with help from DD & her boyfriend) is putting down hardwood floors in our living room.

Here we have some "unsewing", luckly I noticed the "boo boo" before I sewed more rows together.  

Here is a small batterey operated seam ripper which cut "unsewing" time considerably.

The seam ripper that Dear Daughter gifted to me after she worked for Connie Spurlock of Sew Wonderful Dreams, when they were at the Sewing Expo in Chantillie.  I can't get over how much time this little guy saved me today. Thankfully I noticed the mistake before adding more rows, this is Orca Bay which we all know has a million pieces, and noticeable pattern once all together.  

Boo boo block removed.

Correction made, happy dance!

So today is Sunday, and Football.  We aren't going to the game today so DH can finish up the living room floor, Thanksgiving is next week so it's gotta get done.  DS, DBIL, and DNephew are at the game.  HTTR!  

Happy Piecing, and Happy Sunday!

Thank you Veterans

Taking a moment to Honor the Veterans past and present that serve our Great Nation.  

This Quilt I made to Honor and Thank the two most important Veterans in my life.  

I know and love many Veterans and I thank each and everyone of them.  A special shout out to my Nephew Thomas, currently serving in Afghanistan.

God Bless America!

Murder Mystery Week-end

Here we are my man & I participating in a murder mystery at the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa.  We have been having a blast. Our room is nice, the view is beautiful, the food yummy, and the mystery has been really fun so far.  I think we have the suspect figured out, but we still have cocktails, and dinner to get thru tonight  before the reveal tomorrow morning.

What a great time we are having.  Everyone (all employee's are playing along).

A room with a view.  

Tomorrow is a new day, and the murderer will be revealed.

Happy Belated Birthday to my Man!
