Thanksgiving Turkey Dash and...Coming in 2020

While we are busy making our plans and
 thinking about what we are really thankful for,
there's something that isn't so thrilled, I guess one might say.
This oh so cute pattern, is from my friend Carol, over at "Just Let Me Quilt",
She's an incredible designer, with a "wicked" eye for humor.
What's not to love about that?
There's still time to get him stitched up, so check out the pattern

If you've followed me for very long, you know that I love to laugh.
Laughter makes the world go round and releases so much stress.
Sounds a whole like quilting doesn't it?

As I sit and listen to the news and see what's happening globally,
 it's easy to let that stuff get you down.
Pardon my little segway...
With the start of the new decade, I'm starting each day with a laugh,
 and you can all be a part of it too!

I'm officially announcing a "daily dose of giggles"!
Every morning when the alarm goes off, our local radio DJ's
are talking about what silly holiday it is.
They are so darn funny on the radio, that I had to "Google" it!
 Did you know there are websites with calendars of silly holidays?

Something has been rattling around in the back of my head for years.
 I wanted to make a bunch of little mini quilts that I could put in a basket
 and flip through when the spirit moved it.
The "EUREKA" moment hit me!
I'm going to make a small (8"x10") quiltie for every silly holiday day of the year.

It's a tall order and there is a lot of planning happening right now.
I don't expect any of you to be as crazy as me...
but you can join in any time.
Big, small, frequent, occasionally...share your glorious giggly projects and 
make everyone's day!
This will be taking place mostly on "Instagram" but I will have weekly posts 
right here on my blog. (I'm hoping I can remember how to add a linky bar, 
so you can share your posts with us all)
There will be prizes, and promises of lots of laughs.
I'm using the hashtags of 
So help make 2020 a year to remember.
Feel free to grab my button and share away.
I'd love to hear your ideas!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. This sounds wonderful! And a big task! I'll join the fun as I can, but since I am prepping for the Pieces From The Past Sew Along myself, I'm not sure how many 8x10s I can do. But for sure will be looking for a good giggle. Thanks & Blessings!

  2. I look forward to seeing what you do. One can never laugh enough.

  3. What fun. I can't wait to giggle along with you.

  4. What a fun idea. I'm excited to see what folks create and perhaps I'll be able to make a few myself.

  5. I LOVE your idea! I just wish I had time to join in, but I look forward to seeing what you create (and finding out more about the silly holidays!)

  6. That such a great idea. We can all use a good daily chuckle.

  7. You are creative and silly - great combo in my book. I love this idea and can't wait to see what comes up. I may need to get my silly on.

  8. I love this idea and could use some laughs.

  9. That's a GReaT idea... & just what the doctor ordered...GooD LuCK.

  10. Love the quilt.
    And I love your idea of having a laugh to start every day! But I am terrified about the amount of work involved with 365 mini quilts!!!
    I suppose if anyone can do it, it has to be you!!

  11. I'm so glad you will share them here, since I do not do Instagram, or any of those other things that are not email or facebook. Will be looking forward to what ever you will be coming up with!

  12. This will be so much fun to watch. Do look at some of the #100day projects for advice on setting yourself up for success....prepare as much as you can so you can get right to work each day is the one I remember in Deb Grifka's class. I will be watching, and laughing - I am sure!!!

  13. The National Day Calendar is one of my favorites - I'll be posting when the silly spirit moves me!

  14. I'm not in time for Thanksgiving, this year, but I got that pattern! It is so cute, I just had to have it. I will eagerly wait for your 'Holiday' quilts. How can I follow you on IG?


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
