Almost Turkey Time!!

Well, it is almost here. I can't believe that is already the middle of November. Seems like we just had Halloween and trick or treaters. It was rainy and cool today. Nice day to stay inside.

The past week flew by. Jeff had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder on Wednesday and is recuperating nicely at home. He has to wear a sling with the pillow at his side for a month, so he is adapting to using his left hand. Doing quite nicely, I might add. Goes back to the doctor on Thursday to remove stitches and talk about physical therapy.

We are leaving for Washington DC on Saturday to spend Thanksgiving with Nick. Ellena, Alex and the boys are flying in from Puerto Rico to spend Thanksgiving with us. Alex's parents, who live in California, will also be celebrating with us. It is going to be a great time. Can't wait to see them all.

I participated in a retreat this weekend with my ebay group, AAPG. You find all your UFOs and see what you can get finished. I can actually say I got quite a bit done. Here are the ones I found to work on.Then here are the ones I finished.Then I found this Santa to finish, but forgot to buy stuffing when I went to the store today. Maybe I can get him done this week.I did also get the binding on the maple leaf table top quilt that is in the first picture but forgot to take a picture of it finished. Will post a picture next time.

I also received some wonderful RAK gifts this week from my AAPG friends. Jo sent a cute Halloween card with some awesome spun silk thread. It is sooooo soft.
Pam also surprised me with a box of goodies. I can say, I haven't eaten all the chocolates yet, but give me another day or two.
AAPG is such a great group of women to be a part of and they are always full of surprises. Thanks Jo and Pam for your random acts of kindess to me.

Well it's late, so guess I better close. Busy, busy week ahead.

Wishing everyone a great week ahead. Smile and think positive.



  1. You're moving along fantastically with your UFO's Patijane!!!! All are so beautiful! Great news to hear that Jeff is being a good patient! I think he wants himself to heal faster than anything! ~Sharon

  2. HI Patijane - Sounds like you are going to have a great Thanksgiving with everyone. All your finishes are beautiful! I don't know how you girls get it all done. Those RAK's are wonderful. I too was blessed with a box from you :) and Pam for my bday RAK. Love everything. I apologize for not getting pics up...stinks having to wait on your teenage daughters camera. LOL
    The candle lite glows so beautifully in my kitchen.
    Blessings to you and yours.
