Happy Thanksgiving

I'm in the process of a house move. Local, but still stressful! Emptying my linen closet I came upon a set of counted cross stitch pictures that my sister Janet made a few decades ago! The masking tape on the edges (to keep them from unraveling) were so brittle that I could peel it off easily.

I want to share the one that is relevant for today! Just in time for Thanksgiving.

I can envision this as the center of a small quilt. Or maybe I'll take ALL of them and incorporate them into a sampler. What do you think?

I used to do counted cross stitch and still have several beloved samples. I framed some and made others into pillows. Whatever I have are in some box and I'll see them in another week when I start unpacking.

What's for dinner tonight? Probably some sort of leftovers. My husband Phil and I are so exhausted. We are not hosting a dinner nor going to anyones'. We're fine with that. We'll make up the family time at Christmas. We try to be thankful every day; just not having any turkey!

Stay tuned for an awesome Hanukkah post coming up December 3. This is part of a blog hop sponsored by Michael Miller.


  1. Hi Debby! Happy Happy Thanksgiving to you, dear. I hope the move went well - that is SO exhausting. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Great to find such beautiful treasures which often contain lots of family memories.

  3. Love those counted cross stitch pieces. Yes, please incorporate those into a quilt. You may have given me a great idea is I can find all of mine.
    Have a great Thanksgiving even with a move.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving. It is very cute. I am also in the midst of moving, so I can relate with finding and figuring.


  6. NICE! Thanks for sharing. Kind of nice to purdge.
    Happy Holidays!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving. What great cross stitch blocks! Those will make a lovely quilt some day. You have me curious about the upcoming Chanukah post. I have to admit that there are far too few quilters blogging about Chanukah things. I look forward to seeing what you've got up your sleeve.

  8. Very pretty cross stitching. Happy Thanksgiving! Good luck with the move. Enjoy your day!! :-) :-)

  9. Doing the same. My mom gave me 13 cross stitch pictures that she would like me to make into a quilt. They are all Ocean City Themed. A challenge for sure!
