It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, with today being actual Thanksgiving Day. This room is one of the many things I am thankful for and today the sunlight is streaming in the windows. It is not terribly warm outside but the sun is wonderful.
Like most families we had our family dinner yesterday at my sister in law's home. I love turkey dinner but the gravy and mashed potatoes are my favorite. I have been sick and spent the day yesterday on the couch but pulled myself together to go out for dinner- and I have to be really sick to lose my appetite, so I did really enjoy the lovely meal. I just have a cold so it will pass eventually...
This morning Tony headed out "on the road again" about 5:30, so I decided that my back was too sore to lay around all day again, so I needed to do something standing up. What better than to cut out a new quilt? I am using some fabric that is several years old called Full Sun by Willowberry Lane for Maywood Studios. It has wonderful yellows and greens and even better, lots of sunflowers.
This is the pattern I am going to use -"Flight of Geese" from Quilts and More, Fall 2010. It is just made up of big Flying Geese blocks and will showcase the fabric beautifully. I should get it all cut out today and my back is feeling better already.
Hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful long weekend and lots of fun family time.
