Black Friday....No it's stretch pant Friday.

I hope everyone had a great Turkey day.  I don't know why, after 30 years of Thanksgiving dinners under my belt, you would think I would know how long it takes to cook a turkey.  

Oh no, I set the alarm for 4:30 am.  Mike and I get up, cut all the veggies, boil the insides, whip up the stuffing, and get the bird in the oven.  

Around 9:300 or so I begin to wonder how long I need to keep the bird in.  (I'm think it will be done around 2-3) 
Oh no, my bird will be done at 11:00 am. 

So the York's had a noon time Thanksgiving this year.  Our turkey coma started about 1.  The cats were in heaven, so many warm bodies to lay on.  They had their pick!!  

I have so much New Valdani to get on the website.  We are carrying all the new Wool Thread, so soft and sinks in the the wool.  We also got all the Silk Floss in.  I will have it all up this next week.  Have a Great weekend. Shawn

Back a week

I have been home a little over week from Houston.  I feel like I have been on the go ever since I got home.  I'm so excited about this next year.  Rusty Crow is changing lanes a bit, and it's all going to be good.  

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I'm just hoping the luggage will be put away and the laundry washed from the 7 shows and one wedding in 8 weekends that we did.  Funny, how things that use to be important, aren't so much anymore. It's a good thing I have lots of clothes.  

The Blog Along has been super fun.  I would love to see some of your blocks. Rusty Crow was at Quilt Market with Valdani.  I grabbed up all the new Wool Thread that they are now carrying.  I will be putting it on my website today.  I haven't used it yet.  I have so much work to get done from Market before I can start to play with the new stuff.   

Mike, my husband, lost his grandfather while I was gone on the road.  It was hard not being there for him, but we had our kids near.  Grandpa Grigg had not been good for the last year.  Feeding tubes, oxygen and so on.  Not able to talk, no sure if anything you were saying was processing.  That was the last of Mike's side, his parents and all his grandparents are gone.  Life does not stop.  The clock keeps ticking, a reminder not to get stuck in grief, life is for the living.  Love doesn't go away.
