This morning I'm signing off the blog for a day or two, but I didn't want to let the day go by without sharing a couple of things with you. For one thing...this cat. Smitty is thankful for this cat. I was all set to dress him up like a turkey, but then he Googled this guy. Smitty is helpful in every way. Right now he's helping Gracie get some exercise.
Also, remember the link I posted from the NY Times about 50 recipes from 50 states? Today they followed it with this article about the most Googled recipes from the 50 states.
There is much to accomplish today, and I need to get going. Still, I didn't want to miss wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and to thank you for reading so faithfully. When I started this blog about 4 1/2 years ago, I just wanted to participate in some of the online quilt challenges. I started writing tentatively, not really finding my voice until I started writing my blog posts as letters to good friends. You have responded in kind. You've made me laugh with your funny comments, encouraged me to keep going during challenging times (both life challenges and sewing challenges), and you've been some of my best friends. When I consider the many people and things for which I am grateful, I count all of you among them. Thank you.
