About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Happy Thanksgiving!

For all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving - I hope you have a wonderful day, enjoy your time with friends and family.   If you have to travel or have family that travel I hope they have a safe trip.   To those of you who don't celebrate Thanksgiving - I still wish you a wonderful day!

Here in Ohio it's 60 degrees and just beautiful out.   We will not celebrate our Thanksgiving with my family until Saturday.   However, we are going to my daughter's house tomorrow for dinner.   My cousin, her children and her brother (also my cousin) will be here tomorrow evening to visit their big family in Vermilion.   Then they'll come here and spend time with my family before they have to head back home to Tennessee.

I have finished quilting one of the quilts I'm giving as a gift this Christmas.  Just have to finish the other one.   I still have two more to do but they'll probably be given after Christmas....there are only so many hours in a day ya know!  :)    I have also finished the Christmas gifts that I make.  Yay me!

So hubby and I have cleaned downstairs, put the tables and chairs up.   Now we're going to eat some lunch, then I'll do my baking for Saturday.

Today I am grateful for the many friends I have "met" on facebook and on blogs.   You are what keeps me motivated to make my quilts, hook my rugs, punch needle and cross stitch.   You all give such good tips and good advice.   You're all just awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Happy Thanksgiving Char. I hope that you have a marvelous time with your family.

  2. I visited my mom in Toronto on Thanksgiving. That was a nice trip. I hope your holiday was wonderful as well.
