Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend with our children.
We spent the weekend in Yorkton at our daughter's. Just a small gathering that also included hubby's mom and one of his sisters, as well as our son. We got here late Saturday afternoon, we where the last to arrive. The kids and their auntie had gone out to Rhien to visit some of the other relatives and had just gotten back before we knocked on the door.
We visited and some played cards into the evening. Sunday I did get to work on the curtain (a roman shade )to match the quilt . The other folks did their own things from a little shopping to a quick trip ,to the casino , while the turkey was cooking  for about and hour and a half . The house sure smelt good when they all walked through the door. We had a late dinner and visited some more the crib board was out, And then auntie headed home as she had to work today.
Hubby did get some of our daughter's Christmas light up even though it was raining this morning. Shortly after a late breakfast we all headed home. Grandma needed to get to her other daughter's as her great grand daughter and her daddy where home from Alberta and she need to get a few hugs in.

It is always great to spend time with family and friends.
 I did miss visiting with a very dear friend sew we just will have to get back there another time to visit both our daughter and her.

quilt and roman shade
looks like the quilt is kitty approved
The quilt and Roman shade look good, I still want to make a couple toss pillow to go in her room as well.

I also completed only one of the fall wall hangings.

I had hoped to get two done but my eyes just burned Friday night sew I thought they are tired and want gets done gets done. I can always pop the other one in the mail.
Ther just never seams to be enought time to get in all the things we would love to do. We just have to keep trying and be happy with what we can get done and know that there  is always tommorrow and we can try again.
Sew until next time
stay in stitches
