November 21, 2012- Thankful before Thanksgiving

Today I am thankful for a few hours to craft. I finished my friend Courtney’s birthday quilt. I can’t post photos here because she is one of the only people who actually reads my blog. But that said, I love it. Might be my favorite yet. Courtney- here is the sneak peak at the back

I picked up some glorious yarn to start a hat for Erica’s holiday gift

here is the pattern

I had to buy myself these socks

failed flubber attempt (really I should not be allowed in the kitchen)

this tiny electric european car

a husband who cleaned up this explosive bottle of wine

Thanksgiving prep

I talked to a friend who I worked with 12 years ago. I called her out of the blue. I loved hearing her voice!

Tonight we went over to our friends the Rooneys. Davy spent no less then 45 chasing handsome Abe Rooney around their dining room table. There were gigantic cackles, lots of falls and SO much laughter. Really, it was something to see. Davy’s kid personality is emerging as a rough and tumble tough girl.She has a big loud laugh (just like her momma) She loves her Abe Rooney. She will let Abe carry her around like a little rag doll. At some point she hooked her legs around his waist and I said it looked like a scene from Officer and a Gentleman. We all laughed.

Laughter, family, friends, crafting, our quirky city. I really do have so much to be thankful for. Really, truly thankful.
