First Holiday Without Felix

My first holiday without Felix will be just fine thanks to some wonderful friends who have invited me to share their Thanksgiving with them. I'm truly blessed!

In the meantime, I worked on making a big bunch of binding to get put onto my Arkansas Crossroads. My dear friend, Maureen, who is a wizard at bindings, agreed to do the whole thing for me and I was grateful to accept her help. She did a beautiful job. Here is the finished 82" square quilt.




On Thursday, I took my dear friend and neighbor, Ilse, and her two house guests, Rosie and Leon, over to the Senior Center for their holiday meal.



The food was delicious and the weather was perfect! I enjoyed their company, too!


We all liked the group painting unveiling that the senior artist's project did. It was very dramatic when it was revealed. They did such a good job!


May you all have a healthy and blessed Thanksgiving this year, surrounded by loving family and friends.

That is a wonderful scrap quilt finish. Love it!
I am glad you have good friends with whom you can share your holiday. That makes such a difference. The first year of events without your loved one are a challenge, but more bearable when you don't face them alone.
That is a great group painting. I could immediately visualize such a scene on a lake there in New Hampshire's Lakes region.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.
