Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we are celebrating the Canadian Thanksgiving, and it is a gorgeous fall day outside. I plan to take a long walk this afternoon once the turkey is in the oven, the pies are baked, the vegetables ready, and the table set. We are having my parents and 2 of my nephews over for supper so that is only 8 of us altogether for me to feed. I might even have some time for hand stitching in the warm fall sunlight if I get all my work done quickly.
I missed celebrating my 2 year anniversary of blogging in September, so I am having a little giveaway now to combine that milestone and Thanksgiving! If you leave a comment on this post I will pick a lucky winner from all the names and will send out this fun package of 5 Fall/Halloween fat quarters and of course some chocolate treats. Happy Thanksgiving and a big thank you to my blog readers for all the fun, support and encouragement!

Hi Kathy,
I just found your site thanks to Luv 2 Stitch. I just got into quilting a couple of months ago, and I am so amazed that there are so many sites devoted to this addicting hobby. I have found so many wonderful tips and techniques from various quilters who share their time on blogs. Also, congratulations on your 2nd anniversary!

I live in Niagara Falls, NY but spend lots of time in Canada so I feel like I get to celebrate both Thanksgivings!
Congrats on your blogiversary and thanks for sharing.
