Turkey Trot Blog Hop


Welcome to the "Turkey Trot" blog hop. 
It's that time of the year, when we are thankful for all the things life has given us, and the people who are in it. 
Turkey has come to represent the Thanksgiving season, but this year there is no turkey in sight. LOL!!
No, this year I went went through the books on my shelf and picked one that had been collecting dust for a few years! 

This is my version of "Pumpkin Hill" a pattern by Anne Sutton.

I love with the whimsical folk art designs and the fact that is was perfect for some stash busting.
It's always a win, when I don't have to buy fabric for a project. 

We had a very cold and frosty morning, one day last week. 
It was calling me to go out and take some photos.

The sun was just coming out and these poor little guys were freezing
 their tails off.  LOL!!

I loved how the light danced on it. Kind of a reminder that even in the coldest of times, the sun warms the heart of the home!
It seems so appropriate, with Thanksgiving coming up next week.

I am lucky enough, to not have to do the cooking this year. It's fun to hand the baton to the next generation...and maybe not have to do the dishes!

Hop on over and visit my friends and see what's cookin' for their "Turkey Trot" projects today.

Just when you think you can turn off your oven...

Carol jumps in and hosts her annual "Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange".
We have 27 bloggers who have been busy getting ready, just for you!
I can hardly wait!

And in January Carol hosts the "White Rabbit" hop.
Challenge: On the first day of each month, there is a tradition for people to say "white rabbit" first thing in the morning. The phrase is supposed to bring good luck for the rest of the month. Even President Roosevelt did this!  Make something with white fabrics, rabbits or white rabbits. What is a tradition you follow?

Drop her an email, if  you want to play along.

Wishing you all, a very blessed Thanksgiving season!

 til next time...

Keep on Stitchin'

  6. This quilt is AMAZING! I wish I could tackle a Bunny Hill pattern, but the applique scares me to death. You made a GORGEOUS quilt - the house block is my favorite! The little pumpkins and the sunflower alongside the house - it's just so cozy! I love your color choices, fabric choices, everything! I've already passed the baton to my daughter, she has hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas for the past few years. I always make plenty of food to take over to share, though! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
