Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!!  I hope you are having a blessed and wonderful day :)  We aren't doing too much to celebrate this year, but some years we do.  I use the excuse that since part of my Dad's family lives in the States, then we can celebrate too.  I am making a pumpkin pie though, and of course we're going to watch Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving - it's a tradition!  I've also been taking some time today to reflect on all the things I am thankful for.  I think it is something I need to do more often.  Lately I can get so caught up in everyday life that I forget to take the time to enjoy all the many blessings in my life.  It's something I definately want to be more mindful of. 

In some crafty news, I've had a bit of a hold-up with the colourful project I was going to start this week.  I changed my mind about what pattern I am going to use and this resulted in needing a few more colours, which I'm planning on picking up tomorrow.  But in the meantime, I finished up the Advent Bunting Stars!!  Now they need to be starched and I have to come up with some sort of a plan for the numbers.  I'm not sure what I want to do with that part yet, but I have a few more days to decide. 

I also have a couple of smaller projects that I want to cast on since most of my Christmas knitting/crocheting is done.  I'm hoping to work on them this weekend while I'm staying at my sister's house.  Most of them are along the "mindless" knitting lines, so I can knit them while watching movies and visiting.  I'm not sure yet if I will keep them for myself or put them aside for gifts, but I have the yarn just laying around so I thought it best to use it up just in case there might be some new yarn under the Christmas tree for me!! 

So have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone and I will hopefully be back soon with some in-progress photos!!
