A Belated Happy Thanksgiving

No, still haven't gotten batteries for the camera.

Penny and I had a great Thanksgiving with Jane and her sweet DH! There were four dogs there - the biggest, a mastiff, down to the smallest, Penny. It sure was funny watching them romp. I wondered how Penny would fare around Teeny, Jane's doxie whom she has never met, but she turned out to be exactly like the weenie I knew she was. When she walked in and saw the other three dogs, she rolled over on her back! She's totally submissive .... need to have a talk with her about that!

Friday I vegged, and today I pretended to clean house. Mostly I thought about cleaning house. That counts, doesn't it? I guess tomorrow I need to just do it. Oh, and watched the football game Friday. Geaux Tigers!

I did poke a couple of buttons at the Fat Quarter Shop. Just a couple. I'm being so good. I got in this Row Row Row Your Boat kit because there's a baby on the way. This is in case it's a boy. I love the It's Sew Emma patterns. I had previously gotten an Anne Sutton pattern and fabric in case it's a girl. I'm all set. I don't suspect I'll get it made by the time the baby is born but it doesn't have to be. As soon as I know the flavor, I'll start cutting.

Today I ordered The Spirit of Sacagawea pattern by Minick & Simpson. I fell it love with it when I first saw it on Laurie and Polly's blog, and was so excited when I saw it at the FQS. Goodness knows, I have more than enough M&S fabric to make this thing!

Tomorrow I run errands. I was avoiding doing them on Black Friday, and today I just didn't feel like getting out. My first stop will be to get new rechargeable batteries!

Hope everyone had a great turkey day! Now, onward to Christmas!

EDIT: Is anyone else having a problem leaving comments using their Google account? I've tried and tried this weekend to leave comments on blogs only to be told that no such account exists...... hello? I used it to make this blog post.

Sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving. There's a blog from Tanya called Friendship Crossing, blogger totally deleted her blog but they finally restored it admitting they made a mistake. It was very strange.

There something to said for just vegging! A bit of recharging for body and soul. Especially with all the busy weeks ahead!

I have had that happen about comments...there is a box that says stay signed in, be sure that is UNchecked and give it a try. Glad you had a nice holiday.

Hey Vicky. It's been a while since I've visited your blog. I was a tad busy myself. Sounds like lots has happened and hopefully your life will settle down some real soon. I watched that football game. A good one! Hope you can get back to quilting and using all that fabic you've been getting. LOL You never change. LOL

What a day to drop in on your blog...I took a look at the Sacajawea pattern. Holy cow! That challenges every kind of quilting, both piecing and applique. You sure have gained confidence if you're planning to make that! Geaux Vicky!
