Where has this year gone?! It really is hard to believe that it's time for Thanksgiving. I've never displayed this quilt before. It was made from a kit, and I purchased it at an auction for $30. It isn't a beauty, and the quilting is fairly crude, but it has slightly Fall-ish colors, so up it went for the next week or so. After that, it will be time for Christmas again - is that right, or did I sleep through the summer?! The tablerunner was whipped up a couple of years ago using Seminole piecing methods - great for squares on point. I've only made a few quilted items, as I really prefer to make quilts themselves. This is on the chest that sits in front of the quilt. You can probably see the stitches without enlarging!
The handsome devils in the photos are, in the background, my great-grandfather in his Civil War uniform. Yes, great-grandfather! Our family has very long generations. I am the youngest of parents who are the youngest. And, no, I am not that old - I'll be 52 shortly. On the left is my dad, and the blond little boy is my husband's dad. My husband doesn't like personal photos displayed; he says that we know what we look like! But, these are nearly always right here in the dining room.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
