Happy Thanksgiving!

"Over the river and through the woods
Trot fast my dapple gray.
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound
On this Thanksgiving Day, Hey!
Over the river and through the woods
Now Grandmother's face I spy.
Hurrah for the fun,
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie."
-   English folksong, It's Raining, It's Pouring 

Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm grateful for all my wonderful quilting friends and readers.
Enjoy this holiday-make some memories!

"November comes 

And November goes, 

With the last red berries 

And the first white snows.

With night coming early, 
And dawn coming late, 
And ice in the bucket 
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn 
And the kettles sing, 
And earth sinks to rest 
Until next spring."
-  Elizabeth Coatsworth

Here's what I've been doing this weekend...having fun! I was inspired by a placemat I inherited from my mother which was made by her friend Fran. I'm still fine tuning this. The corner or "theme" fabric looks a bit busy so I am trying it with a hand dyed solid.
