Happy Thanksgiving...

It's a beautiful day here. I got to sleep in, which was fabulous. I was also able to relax and drink my "candy" coffee while watching H.R. Pufnstuf. Right now I'm watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The pies are baking in the oven (one cherry and one apple) - they smell so good - and the fruit salad is made and waiting in the fridge. We'll be going to spend time with family very soon.

I have been working on a scarf in my kids high school colors. Soccer season is here and I am going to be prepared to show school spirit for my daughters team.

I hope you are having a blessed Thanksgiving Day...

Vintage Stripe...

I first saw this crocheted blanket on Attic 24 many months ago and knew I wanted to make one of my own. I picked softer, pastel colored yarn for it. The colors, along with the style of the blanket, look very old fashioned to me. It's very easy and fast to work and would be perfect for a beginner.

I am also working on Christmas gifts and will be sharing those after the first of the new year.

I will also be sharing some "school spirit" things with you very soon. My daughter made the high school soccer team and with it be a winter sport (opposed cross country, which my son runs, and is during our hottest months here) it will be cold. So, I was thinking a scarf, hat and maybe a blanket would be in order. Go Eagles!

Hoping you are enjoying today...
