Post-Thanksgiving


Hi everybody, hope all of us in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Timothy and I spent Thanksgiving Day hiking in north Georgia. We packed in our turkey sandwiches, pumpkin pie, and apples and ate at the end of the trail next to waterfalls falling over and in between 90' tall granite slabs. We had some heaven-sent wet weather to help Georgia's terrible drought, complete with blustery wind sending the leaves everywhere, falling temperatures, and it was fabulous. The only thing that could have made me happier was a blizzard. I love violent weather (the kind where nobody and nothing gets hurt :-) ). You could even hear the very strong winds blowing through the forest and what a miraculous sound, made me think of home.

Oops did the wrong color combination for Block Swappers earlier, so got this group done that is due December 1st, and will be able to use the earlier combination for next month.


And got this stitched out this morning before work. It's a design that I digitized a few years ago in PatternMaker. Next I'll age it and then use it in a project.

That's the same double pink I'm using for my 4 patch quilt. Your day out in nature sounds lovely.

We were at Lake Oconee just before Thanksgiving and saw both my boys. Chris has been keeping an eye on our condo at Big Canoe and was saying how beautiful the leaves were. I don't miss living there but I miss my boys and hiking in North GA.

Where were you visiting? We used to like going up to Amicalola Falls.
