Thanksgiving Fun

I love the creative muse of Jackie Lawson. 
Here is an animated Thanksgiving card
she made just for you.

Remember our pillowcase collection for Con Kerr Cancer? We delivered over 120 pillowcases to the children at Albany Medical Centers’ oncology unit.  Here are most of them draped over the railing at the shop.

Do you use your cell phone as your home phone?  You may need this site:

If you use Twitter, you may find this site interesting:
visualization of quilting tweets.  It’s interesting to see how many times people use the word quilt without referring to an actual quilt.

I will finish with a Thanksgiving Poem:

Twas the night of thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep
Tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned – the dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation with all of my might

Tossing and turning with anticipation
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
‘Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees….
Happy eating to all; pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes ‘n gravy have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.
