thanksgiving 2012







Snapshots of Thanksgiving 2012 for the 13 of us starting with our tradition of crafting before dinner and ending with a bedside stack of knitting books. I'm going to curl up with these three books and a nice pumpkin spice latte to look for my next knitting project. It's tough work but somebody has to do it.

Thank you for visiting here. And I wish you some very happy weekending. xo

This post made me smile. My childhood holidays were spent at my Gram's. After the dishes were done, the crafting began. Whatever she thought we needed to know. Sitting next to my brother and cousin learning to cast on or crochet or paint on a tree fungus. When my cousin was dying from cancer, she wasn't able to join us for Christmas. I sent her a crochet kit and a paint by number set to honor the times spent around the table together. It is those things I remember, the learning together, the laughter, and joy. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Your garland is glorious!

I just had that book Alterknits from the library! I enjoyed it, didn't make anything though. Your Thanksgiving looks mellow. Happy days.
