Thanksgiving Quilt Kit Give-Away

The promised give-way is Primrose Lane quilt kit. I love this gorgeous quilt, and it was a tough call on giving it away. But I finally realized that it may sit for years longer here, but someone else may make it up and enjoy it a lot sooner.



The kit contains 14.82 yards of Primrose Lane by Ro Gregg for Northcott/Monarch. The pattern is from Timeless Designs by Elaine Waldschmitt. A fabric key card and full size applique template pattern are included in the pattern folder. The kit comes in a zippered bag. Backing is not included. The kit was priced at $175.00.



The reason I chose this one is because of the applique. In my October give-away, the focus was on fusible applique versus needleturn. This quilt can be done either way, and the winner might choose a method different from what she/he normally would do. For me, the joy of quilting is all about stretching and learning new techniques!

To be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment here about your most memorable Thanksgiving! (My story is kinda funny, but I'll tell it when I announce the give-away.) The drawing will be random but it must contain your Thanksgiving memory to be eligible.

The drawing will be held on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday 11/25/10, at around 7:00 a.m. But don't call me if I haven't posted by then because I might be sleeping in for another ten minutes or so! Remember - if your comment doesn't link back to your blog, you must leave your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner.

ALSO, remember I said in the last give-away that I'll be looking for something in your comment or on your blog. If the winner has that, then an extra goody that I think is kind of nice will be added to the package! Hmmm, I wonder what it could be?

Good luck to everyone!

Well Happy Thanksgiving! What a generous giveaway! Thank you! Our most memorable Thanksgiving is ongoing. Every year it happens. I host Thanksgiving at my house and have my family as well as my in-laws. Every year I buy a fresh turkey with a timer and EVERY year my MIL and I think the timer is broken! Every year! When it gets close to the time of when WE think it should pop we hover around the oven and start pacing that the timer is broken and the turkey is going to overcook. Drives my husband and FIL crazy! They say "Don't you two do this every year??" My MIL and I were on the phone tonight discussing what she needed to bring and we started laughing about how she and I never trust the timer!! YET it always pops up and the turkey is always perfect!

Great idea for the giveaway!

The snow arrived with a vengance and all our concerns were for the safe arrival of family for Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings at our house. The bird was in the oven, veggies prepped, desert done, wind blowing, snow coming down, POWER out!! Yep, no power and according to the radio........out for at least 24 hours.
We packed everything into the truck and headed for our sons house in another town.......phoning and letting everyone know the change of venue as we travelled. Carried everything into his house.........put the bird in the oven..........gathered round the table for a relaxing coffee......listening to the radio announce that all power was restored to our area!!
That well travelled bird was delicious and thanksgiving was great!! Pat (bauml@telus.net )

Well...I was serving and cooking my first Thanksgiving meal...I cooked the turkey for a good part of the day...it looked beautiful on the outside. When dear husband went to carve it...it was RAW on the inside. so, I had all the guests waiting...and waiting...and waiting for dinner...hours later it was ready. Hmmm, I will MAKE SURE that it the turkey is defrosted!!! Thank you for your giveaway chance!

scottylover said...

Oh how pretty! Please count me in on the give away. Every Thanksgiving is a good one, but I do remember one from when I was in Junior High School. We usually went to my grandma's for Thanksgiving, but for some reason we stayed home and everyone came to out house. Mom was taking the bread out of the oven and dropped it. Of course it landed up side down, so we had no hot rolls that year! I also remember her getting up really early to put the turkey in the oven so it would be done in time.

Thanks for the chance to win!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Last Thanksgiving was memorable because we treated my MIL and her second husband to dinner at Black Angus. That is the first time we've gone to a nice restaurant for Thanksgiving. My MIL and her husband really enjoyed the meal which was nice. The thing I'm grateful for is doing that for my MIL because it was her last Thanksgiving, she passed on last March.

I don't blame you for sleeping in on Thursday, that's what I plan to do too.

My most memorable thanksgiving was the year my parents and brother visited me. We went to new York city for the Macy's parade. We then went to a nice restaurant for dinner. My father was used to all you can eat family style turkey dinners and his favorite part is the skin of the turkey. Well, he was pissed off that he got only a slice of turkey- and NO skin! He even asked the waiter for some of the skin and the waiter said they didn't have any. My father then argues with the waiter about what did they do with the skin since they served the turkey. Every thanksgiving after that year no matter what he would always say "at least this thanksgiving dinner is better then that one in new York city!"

Hi Vicki,

A give-a-way on Thanksgiving? Great idea! :-)

That is an absolutely beautiful kit!

I don't have a crazy Thanksgiving story but I'll tell one of my Mom's. She had gotten up early to put the turkey in the oven. Now both my brother and I had our spouses at our parents that year. No kids yet. About mid-day my father noticed that he wasn't smelling turkey. She had forgotten to turn the oven on!!! We ended up eating spaghetti and had the turkey and all the fixings the next day.

Oh one more...

Another year, my mother worked hard all day making this absolutely gorgeous looking dessert. It was a dessert bar with nuts, chocolate, and everything else. Expensive ingredients. Well, my husband and my father couldn't wait to eat it after dinner with coffee. We all took a taste and it wasn't good... Not awful but not good. She had made it right but it just wasn't good. It ended up in the trash as both men just couldn't eat it... Which is saying something! :-)

Thank you for a great Thanksgiving giveaway!
I don't really have any particular Thanksgiving that has been memorable. Each year we go to my inlaws for a fabulous meals with the family. Since we do that my Mom and Second Dad will be alone for Thanksgiving. They thought it would be a great day to just relax around the house. She told me a couple of days ago that my second dad's cousin called and was telling her about their plans for the holiday. So my Mom was telling her that they weren't going anywhere. The next day she called back to invite them to dinner with their family. Now Mom and second Dad are a little disappointed that they won't have the day to just relax. But I know they will have a great day with their family.

AnnieO said...

That's a spectacular kit you're giving away. I am with you on the expanding skills desire! I've done some applique of different sorts but not a lot. Just now I am stalling on starting wool applique on a BOM. Learning is good!

Most memorable Thanksgiving is probably the one where my character of a grandmother--who was not domestic particularly though she had 10 children-- threw a sheet over the dinner on the table and sprayed the room with Raid because there were flies in the dining room! There was a lot of coughing and then a lot of laughter. I sure miss her.

quiltma said...

My most memorable Thanksgiving were the ones I spent taking dinner over to my Grandmothers and eating with her. She wanted to stay home because someone might come by. So Mom and I would pack both Grandma's and my dinners and off I would go. She was a remarkable woman who live to be 101 and 1/2.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
One of my favorite meories of Thanksgiving as a young girl is when my parents hosted it at our home. My father had just boought an apple/pealer/corer and we cousins were so excited to use it. We had a little line of operations set up..one would hand the apples over, the next would turn the crank, the next would remove the slices & the last would pick up the peel. The 4 of us began to sing a chant "apple, pealer, corer" with a slight new york accent in honor of my dad. We laughed so hard and had such a fun time. Making pies had never been so fun. To this day my cousins and I still get the giggles when one of us mentions the corer! It's so fun to have memories like these, being a silly kid with cousins..such fun!
Thanks for the fabulous giveaway.

You are so very generous!
In the Netherlands we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I did go to an American Church with my parents when we were young, so what I remember is that we took a lady home on Thanksgiving day who was all alone. She had a dinner with us and after that day she came to us every now and then. It was very special!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Penny!

The first Thanksgiving in our new house I decided it was time for me to host. So we invited the whole family over and right before they started to arrive I put something down my garbage disposal and clogged the sink. My husband thought he new the best way to unclog the sink and proceeded to break the pipes under the sink causing all yucky water to gushed onto the floor. The worst part is that the people that owned the house before us had carpet in the kitchen and we hadn't had a chance to change it out yet.

Good thing I can laugh about it now.

Julie Deuvall said...

Happy Thanksgiving! This is really a very, very generous give away!!! You are way to kind. I love applique and thanks for the chance to win:)

I don't have a really exciting story other than the first time I hosted Thanksgiving at my house with my in-laws coming, my turkey was about 2 hours late. I kept staring at the pop-up waiting and waiting. I still don't know how that happened!

Thanks again and have a wonderful holiday!

My most memorable Thanksgiving is one I have cherished for more years than I can count. My grandfather was from Scotland and he would often share stories of his life there. But the Thanksgiving I cherish most is when he put on his full kilt, grabbed his bagpipes and led a little parade around the block with all of us kids in tow playing any kind of homemade instruments we could find/make. It was wonderful!!

Thank you for the giveaway, Vicky. I am very thankful for your friendship and your generosity to all of us who follow your blog.

My most remarkable Thanksgiving was as a child traveling to my aunt's house. We got stuck on a hill in a blizzard. My uncle rescued us and brought us the rest of the way on snowmobiles! What an exciting way to arrive for dinner, at least in a child's eyes.

Lynn S said...

I remember the first Thanksgiving that I cooked my very first turkey. You guessed it...the little packages. Why I had no idea those were in the turkey and they did cook well too. Believe me, I hear it re-told every Thanksiving afterwards! This is my favorite holiday! It sets the mood for Christmas too and makes us pause to remember how wonderful the gift of life is and the many gifts!
I love applique. What a treat it would be to win this wonderful give-away!

Caeli said...

Most memorable Thanksgiving is going to be this year! This is the first Thanksgiving that we get to celebrate with our son! He will be 6 weeks old on Thanksgiving, and after all the issues of getting pregnant I truly have something to be thankful for this year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Julie in the Barn said...

Wow, what a generous give-away, Vickie. I'd be thrilled to win because I haven't really tried much applique but really want to learn.

Our Thanksgivings have varied over the years as our children grew up and eventually acquired in-laws and the older family members dwindled in number. My most memorable is the first one I hosted as a young wife in our newly purchased home. We had all my hubby's family including uncles and aunts & cousins. There was at least 30 people and I made the entire dinner with very little cooking experience. The gravy was lumpy and the turkey was dry but no one seemed to care. We all just enjoyed being together. Hope your Thanksgiving is full of joy and love and your turkey moist and your gravy smooth!

Quilterbee said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Penny. It's a beautiful kit. Thank you for the chance to win it.
I love Thanksgiving. No presents to buy and families getting together.
The last Thanksgiving spent with Tom, was bittersweet. He loved Thanksgiving.
The first Thanksgiving my DD made dinner in her new big house. It was such a treat to walk into her new house and smell the turkey cooking and the pies already baked.
I'll be making Thanksgiving dinner this year. I bought a 22 pound turkey. There are five of us for dinner but my one daughter doesn't eat meat so there will be a lot of leftovers for all of us which we all love.
For the extra prize are we suppose to mention the pilgrims and the indians and the sharing of the corn and food between them? Or stuffing versus dressing?Cranberry sauce or whole cranberries? Pumkin pie or pecan pie? Gee, I'm getting hungry.
This wasn't Thanksgiving but the worse mishap while cooking was I invited my Mother and Grandmother over for dinner. I fixed a wonderful meatloaf and just as I was taking it out of the oven I dropped it and it landed meatloaf side down all over the inside of the oven door. Oh what a heck of a mess that was. We put on our coats and went out to eat. LOL.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Okay I guess the most memorable Thanksgiving was the year our refrigerator went out the day before. We were doing some cooking ahead and noticed that the fridge was warm! We called the repair man, and at 9:00 PM he came and fixed the problem. What was the problem?? The defrost in the freezer had frozen, and all he had to do was use my hair dryer to warm the coils. Saved at the last minute :-) I would love to be entered for this great kit. I like to use the fusible applique method myself :-) Happy Thanksgiving.

Monica said...

The Thanksgiving I remember most is the first one I spent with my husband which, coincidentally, was the last one I spent with my son. (Don't worry my son is still around. He's just very busy.) This was also the year I cooked my first turkey. (I was a late bloomer.)

It was just such a good day...being with my two favorite guys. But then any day with them is a good day.

dianne said...

my dad always roasted the turkey for thanksgiving - and he liked to use WINE - i think my favorite memory is coming back from playing on the swings at the local elementary school (which were always too full of kids during school for me to EVER get a turn) and watching my dad turning the turkey (i guess people don't turn turkeys anymore, but he always did) ... it was a messy business and his hands were covered with turkey pan drippings - he took a look at them and then proceeded to slurp the juices off each finger, one at a time - slurp slurp slurp slurp slurp ... we were never allowed to put our fingers in our mouths and i was amazed that my mom wasn't swatting him a good one - ha ha ha!

Quilt Hollow said...

Happy Thanksgiving week to you! The only silly moment for Thanksgiving I could think of would be the first year I had to make the turkey. I knew I need to pull out the necks and such but couldn't find them or feel them...hubby runs to grab the flashlight and here we are with a flashlight shining it down the bird! We were so young back then...so stupid! LOL

Marilyn said...

The first Thanksgiving after we were married there was a terrible storm and we took a bus from Palm Springs to San Francisco - too dangerous for us to drive in a car we were unsure of. Jerry's parents were also in the Bay Area and drove us home. We were 2 hours from home when we were hit by a drunk driver on a lonely desert road. FIL saw him coming around a curve and had pulled completely off the road & he hit us head on in the back (drivers side) passenger door. I had just been sitting there and had decided to take a nap. Put my head in DH lap and my feet were by the door. I was a bit banged up but nothing too serious. No one else was hurt other than bumps and bruises. Had I still been sitting up it would have been another story. We certainly gave Thanks that holiday weekend.

Vicky, this is a beautiful kit. I have done a little applique on small quilts and need to get back to it. What a special giveaway!

My most memorable Thanksgiving was in 1993. My sister and I both live in eastern PA and our parents live in western PA. We both started out the day before Thanksgiving, early in the morning. My family took the southern route and her family took the northern route. Unfortunately, we both ran into terrible ice storms. Our 6 hour trips each lasted more like 18 hours. We got there safely and had a VERY thankful holiday. Thanks for your giveaways that I alway see because I subscribe to your blog via my Google Reader. Kathie L in Allentown

When I was about 7 my uncle brought us some little ducklings to raise. We kept them at our house in town until they got too big. We took them to my grandfather's farm and every time we went there after that we ran to the barn to visit. That Thanksgiving we had dinner at the farm. When dinner was over, I sat back and told my grandmother that was the best turkey I had ever had. The table got silent and then my grandfather said, "I'm glad you liked it -- those were your ducks." I was devastated and never quite trusted anything served at that house from then on! (Except for the chocolate covered graham crackers he made sure were always on hand from then on for my visits!)
Beautiful quilt and giveaway, Vicky. I posted it on my blog but now have to figure out how to link it to here which I think is beyond my computer skills.

jillquilts said...

OH, I don't know if I have a specific Thanksgiving memory. Although in recent years, I have been doing the Black Friday shopping and pouring over the ads in search of the best thing to get... The last 2 years I have shopped by myself and it is wonderful to get out and get what I need and go back home to climb back into bed! :)

I'm sure we will email before then, but happy Turkey Day to you and Penny!

Kathy H said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. My most memorable Thanksgiving was my first year of college. We had snow! So going to Grandma's house meant shoveling the snow to get there. I don't think we had ever had snow that early. Our family all made it there and it was a great celebration.
thanks for the chance to win in your wonderful giveaway.

Diane said...

My most memorable Thanksgiving was when my oldest sister had her first baby. I was 10 years old and the baby in thew family. Thanksgiving was and still is my favorite holiday since the whole family was at the house all day. My sister was due any day to have her baby and she ate like she could not fill up. She ate so much my Grandma commented she had better stop before she popped the baby out. About two hours later after she finished another piece of pecan pie she looked at my moma and said she was in labor. My moma said she probably was feeling cramps from all the food she ate. Sure enough about 9pm she had my very first neice. From that day until she started pre-school I carried her around like she was one of my baby dolls. I loved her so much just like she was mine. That was the best Thanksgiving for me.
I get to go see my family again this year. Even though we live very far apart we still try to get together.

Anonymous said...

Happy Thankgiving to you! Great giveaway. My memorable Thanksgiving was when my husband and I invited not only his family to join us, but also my large family. We lived 500 miles away from them and they all came and stayed with us! It was overwhelming for me in a major way. I was cooking for days and stepping over people and trying to keep it together. What were we thinking. Never again.

That kit looks great. I'm trying to improve my applique skills. Hi to Penny!

My most memorable Thanksgiving was the first year I was married. It was just the two of us in our little condo in Chicago, we cooked a chicken and enough of all of the sides to go with it to last us for a week.

Hilachas said...

My favorite Thanksgiving memory involves my family. I come from a large family and every year am thankful for having such a loving family. When we get together, all the usual cooking is involved along with the tedious clean-up afterward. One year, we asked if it would be ok to use paper plates instead of the usual family china. There was moaning and groaning all around about the use of paper plates until we asked who was interested in being on the clean-up crew. Immediately,everyone was in favor of paper plates and this has become one of our best family traditions and one of my best Thanksgiving memories.

Gwen said...

One of our most memorable Thanksgiving was during Desert Storm. Our youngest son was in the Navy and in the Gulf. We celebrated with longtime friends. One family's son was also in the Navy, the other's in the Air Force. That one was the only one at home. We all hosted trainees from local military bases. Signed up for 2 per family. When my DH went to pick up our guest he was told they needed hosts for another group that had just arrived the night before. He filled up the car and brought those home. Then he and the other husbands retuned to get four more each. 6 became 20! We had plenty of food, lots of fun and everyone called home after dessert!

Happy Thanksgiving! My most memorable Thanksgiving is the last one with my late Father. He fell asleep in his recliner with his great grandbaby asleep in the crook of his one good arm. It was adorable seeing the two of them so cozy and peaceful. We miss him.

Thanks for the giveaway. I have never made a quilt from a kit, and haven't done applique (unless sewing a square on a towel counts as applique). After seeing your kit ohoto with good instructions and everything laid out, think would be a great way to start.

Oh! While I do not have a blog, I have a profile on google. I follow your blog and of course, Quilting is my major interest too. Happy Thanksgiving.

Lynne in Hawaii said...

We use to have Thanksgiving every year with some dear friends. Both the men were terrific cooks. The ladies did the pies. My DH would make a special sweet potato dish and home made cranberry sauce that everyone loved. We have moved away, but received a e-mail today. He had friends visit and they asked "What is that Heavenly smell?" He was making my DH's cranberry sauce...it is to die for! Those were some of the warmest, loving Thanksgivings ever. I am thankful for great friends!

I think there have been several memorable Thanksgiving but one that will be hard to forget would be three years ago. We traveled 6 hours to my son & daughters house they rented together. They fixed a wonderful dinner after which we decorated a mini Christmas tree to send to my youngest son, their brother, who was in Iraq for his second Christmas in a row. We had a lot of fun loading the package with goodies and taking photos to send with it.
Love the giveaway stuff!

First off: Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
I am off all week visiting family in Germany (and we don´t have Thanksgiving here). My most memorable Thanksgiving was my very first one at a friends house in Michigan. A ton of family and lots of great food! I had never met most of the family members and it was just a great evening - and to be included as a foreigner, was very special! Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Dee said...

My most memorable memory of Thanksgiving is of the only year I didn't make it home for Thanksgiving. My sister and I were living in an apartment together and she decided to make a traditional meal with turkey and everything for friends that also couldn't go home to family. We laughed so much over that meal as neither of us had ever cooked a turkey or all the trimmings before. It turned out all right, at least we didn't poison anyone. That's the only turkey I've helped prepare. The last 4 years, Thanksgiving has been at my house and our tradition is to order Boston Market. All I have to do is reheat everything and I can spend most of the day with my family. Plus the food is really good too!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I hope you have a great time spending it together. And how nice of you to give away such a great quilt kit. My favorite applique type is back-basting needleturn and I expect I would use it for the applique.

Linda in PA said...

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for such a great giveaway!
My most memorable Thanksgiving was the year that my in-laws were spending the holiday with us for the first time. The turkey had been in the oven for several hours and was smelling really good, the kids were outside playing and the other adults were napping. I was in the kitchen doing something when I heard this loud "POP". I realized that the oven element had burned out. I was starting to panic when I remembered reading or hearing that an oven continues to cook long after it is shut off. I just left the oven door shut and hoped that the turkey would get done. It did get done and tasted great. No one but me knew about the almost disaster until well after dinner.
Thanks again for the giveaway.

Camping at the coast with over 30 folks for dinner in an old Army kitchen tent. Everyone bringing something for the traditional meal & turkeys BBQ'd golden brown smelling up the campsite. It was a great time for the kids to explore & the grown-ups to stand around the fire & visit.

Quilt Monkey said...

One of may favorite Thanksgiving memories was when we had quite a group of family together, and just before we started eating, we re-created the famous Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving painting. We got everyone positioned just right with their heads turned just so. It was fun and the picture is a treasure. Some in the picture aren't with us anymore so it is extra special.

Have a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving!

Vivian said...

As a recent convert to hand applique I have to try for this one!

I think my most memorable Thanksgiving will be this one. Normally me, my DH and kids spend Thanksgiving with my family and Christmas Day with his. But my MIL and her husband retired to North Carolina this year so we will be traveling out-of-state on the holiday for the first time ever to spend Thanksgiving with them (doable because of the long weekend)!

When my MIL lived here in NY we periodically get together to quilt. Now that we don't live close, our visits have to include a quilting session. She already has three Christmas gift tops in process that she wants me to help her finish and I have blocks for a Double Wedding Ring top that I hope to assemble while down there and an applique project for in the car (the first time I will do that too).

It will be interesting to see if we get anything done after all the eating and I am hoping that all the horror stories about traveling on the holiday aren't true!!

Wishing everyone an enjoyable and Happy Thanksgiving!

I loved the Thanksgiving's when all of our families were together when we lived in LA. One time the sweet potatoes that had marshmallows on them ignited when I put them under the broiler. We have that on tape.
My most memorable one was when I was in the hospital awaiting the birth of my son. I was admitted Nov 11 with preeclampsia. I had a dreadful hospital turkey dinner then my husband brought turkey and stuffing from his family's dinner. My son was born on Dec 8 and is now 24 years old. I am very thankful I have him!

Eleana said...

I hope to win and share the quilt with you and Jane :)
One of the most memorable Thanksgiving for me, for some crazy reason. Is the year i was going through a divorce and for the first time ever alone. My best friend brought to my house her tradition. To watch "Alice's Restaurant" the movie. It wasn't a good movie. But, i will never forget this time, ever.

Beautiful giveaway and thanks for the opportunity to win, especially on Thanksgiving! I like many others believe that every Thanksgiving is special, since we get to spend time with family and friends. However, this year will be even more special since it will be our first with our new granddaughter who is 3 months old, and our only grandchild. The only sad aspect is that my mother passed away 3 years ago, so she will never know the joy of this new life and how precious she is. Thank you!

Nancy said...

My favorite memory is my first Thanksgiving after getting married. We went to my husbands sister house and I was helping her get dinner on the table. She got lumps in her gravy and since she didn't want her Mom to see that she couldn't make lumpless gravy she decided to strain it. Yep...she strained it right over the sink.. all the lumps ended up in the strainer and all the gravy went down the drain... I never laughed so hard in my life...
It was many years later that my mother-in-law made her own goof with lumpy gravy by putting it in the blender...she put the lid on and the heat built up, top exploded and shot gravy all over the ceiling...
I make the gravy now...

corinne said...

My memorable one is when my children were little and money was tight. The kitchen was hot, so the window was open. I was carrying the cooked turkey, a big beautiful turkey. It looked and smell beautiful. When it slipped from my hands, fell out the window, bounced down the deck steps where the dogs were waiting. The dogs had the best meal ever and we had alot of vegetables and pie. The smell still lingers today.

Cherie in St Louis said...

Our best Thanksgiving ever was when we had all five of our young adult children, only one of which lives in our state, came home. We had Thanksgiving dinner, played Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride and listened to holiday music on Thursday followed the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Holiday program on Friday. Truly a wonderful time :)

Heather said...

My most memoral thanksgiving was the first one with my new family. At home growing up we never did anything for thanksgiving, so having a family of my own to cook a wonderful ham for was the beginning of a new tradition.

Happy Thanksgiving. The first Thanksgiving after I was married my husband won a turkey at a turkey shoot. I cooked the turkey and was so proud of how good it looked. But alas, the insides were still in the turkey. I didn't know they were packed in the cavity and I cooked it with them in it. We still laugh about it. Live and learn. Thank you for the chance to win. dorthac@aol.com

Happy Thanksgiving Vicky - what a generous giveaway. My most memorable Thanksgiving was last year when our son got married and we celebrated with my daughter-in-laws entire family. Having no family in Canada it was a special time for us.

Am I too late to get in on the fun? :-)

I think the most memorable Thanksgiving for me was when I was 13yrs old. Rather than cooking the big dinner, my family volunteered and served dinner at a homeless shelter in my hometown. Being 13, I had this naive mindset about homeless people. Then we sat down to eat with one of the families and learned that their "down time" happened because the father lost his job and the wife was unable to work. From that day on I had a totally different "mindset" when it came to those less fortunate than me. It's one Thanksgiving I'll always remember.

As I'm not sure if this links back to my profile, that has my email address, properly, I'll post it here. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
