Beautiful Thanksgiving Day!

The frost(ing) is on the pumpkin (cake) and my family’s all in shock! (With apologies to James Whitcomb Riley.)

What a wonderful day it was yesterday! With family and new neighbors gathered around the table, we paused to remember loved ones who could not be with us and celebrated the holiday with laughter and love. (It was my dad’s birthday and would have been 93 years old. He died in 2000, but wonderful memories keep him close.)

It wasn’t quite cool enough for a fire in the fireplace yesterday, but the overcast sky and chilly temp today holds great promise for tonight.

I didn’t work at all yesterday, but enjoyed spending time on a website with examples of beautiful fiber art of a Japanese man. Follow this link and click on the slide show. The pieces are very interesting and it would be a treat to see them in person. The textural detail is fascinating!
