Happy Thanksgiving

Nov 27, 2014

We do hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving Day.

Today is also 'Pins and Needles Day', which I take to mean you are to use pins and needles, not be on 'Pins and Needles' because you have to spend the day with some crazy relative. We don't have that problem as all of us seem to be a bit certifiable.

A quick project to keep the kids busy after dinner is the following Christmas Ornament.

Use about 18" of very thin wire. Thread 1/2" squares of wool and buttons on the wire. 3 or 4 squares of wool, 2 buttons, 3 or 4 squares of wool, 2 buttons, etc. Twist wire into a wreath and let the remainder be used for a hanger.

My plans for today include finishing a small throw from our hummingbird panel

Beside Black Friday tomorrow is also "Buy Nothing Day". Not sure that will happen but remember Saturday is Small Business Saturday.

Happy Thanksgiving
