Happy Monday to you.  Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this week?  As you know, we are having family here this week so I was anxious to to get my quilt top done before they arrived; just so I could clean up my sewing room and have things tidy.  Many of you wanted me to post a photo, so friends here it is.
It is quite different from anything I've done before but I'm beginning to really like it.  I'm not sure what type of hand quilting I will do yet; I figure that it will be on my design wall until after Christmas.  I still have another quilt to bind before I start quilting this.
Are you going to be cooking all week?  We will be cooking a turkey and yams as well as some small side dishes.  As excited as I am about Thanksgiving, I'm itching to begin decorating! 
I hope you have a perfect day, followed by a perfect week.
Hugs, Noreen

  7. Noreen, thanks so much for your sweet comment. I do love to paint winter scenes. Maybe it's because I see so much of it!
    I found a quilt company in a magazine that caters to Southwestern designs and they are gorgeous. It's in Albuquerque: Kokopelli Quilting Co.,
    Maybe you can find some fabrics you like there.......Denise
