Thanksgiving is coming.....

26 comments
I have my entryway set up with my favorite fall quilt that I usually hang at Thanksgiving. I really love that novelty print in the border. It is my VERY favorite vintage fabric. Front and center on the side board is my "Hall's" pitcher. Freda, my mom, had a few Hall's pieces that we used at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other holidays or when guests ate at our home. Seeing that fall dish pattern makes me almost smell turkey baking. I'm pretty excited to have all the family home at least for some or most of next week. That doesn't happen all that often anymore. It is a time to celebrate. We love Thanksgiving. Speaking of family..............I had to sneak one more pic of Allison in. Since she was at our house last week we have a bunch. That girl is on the move. You can see my little retro children's china hutch in the background.

PS: I decided every quarter or so I have to get my Google Reader to 0. Yesterday was that day. Going into the holidays I know it will fill right up and I won't get it back to 0 until next year. Thanks blog friends for being patient with me.

That is a great way to use a beloved fabric...put it in the border instead of cutting it all up into little pieces. I will remember that. Allison is so sweet!

It is a wonderful quilt and my jaw dropped when I first saw how perfect the border fabric is and to top it off, it's in your favorite color...perfect!!!
Allison is adorable and seem to be having lots of fun on her visit :-)

It's neat that you change your quilt by the entrance each season and have neat memories to go with each. Allison just keeps getting cuter.
