Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful time of fellowship with family and friends today!

Our home was filled with family and tons of food!! I did most of the cooking since my Mom recently had a spill and broke her elbow. My man made a turkey breast, pork loin and London broil. Ten pounds of potatoes were peeled and mashed along with stuffing, two pies (apple & pumpkin, sauerkraut and string beans. My SIL made pecan pie, broccoli salad and sweet potatoes!

I did get up and hit the gym first thing! I powered walked over three miles. I hoped the mileage balanced out the food that I consumed.

I have been thinking about what I am thankful for this year. Life trials this year have taught me much about myself. Getting to serve fellow teachers who had life changes stretched me. I needed stretching!! My family (DH, DD & DS) are such a blessing!

I need to thank all the sewing bloggers who inspire, instruct and share their creative garments and projects!! Any time of the day or night I can get my fill of sewing loveliness from every one's blogs.
