It is Thanksgiving today in Canada and I will be making the traditional turkey dinner. It has been absolutely glorious weather this weekend...warm and sunny every day. This is one of the beautiful trees we saw on our Saturday walk.
My extended family celebrated together yesterday and we took the 10 kids to the apple farm. We picked a lot of apples and I plan to make apple pie and Judy's Caramel Apple Jam.
We also went on a hayride and walked the corn maze...we had a great day!
In addition to today being Thanksgiving, it is also Design Wall Monday over at Judy's blog. This is what was is proudly being displayed on my design wall...block #7 of my "Journey of A Quilter" project.
I finished block #6 last summer, and have been slowly working on the above block for over a year...I have no idea why these blocks are taking me so long, except that I have started many many other quilts since then and I am enjoying the journey!!
I also have block #8 pieced and just have to trace the embroidery designs on the empty white spaces, and then I can get the hand stitching started on this one.
And then there will be only 1 more block to make...woohoo!
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian blog readers!
