It’s almost Thanksgiving Y’all!!!

I can’t believe that it is almost Thanksgiving in the US!! Seems like the 4th of July was just here and now it is winter holiday time!!!

I had therapy twice this week and find the bicycle easier now and exercising to stimulation harder. I have been released from elevating at night and only as needed now…same with ice. I am walking around the house unassisted (except touching the walls occasionally.. LOL!) and bring the cane when I leave the house though πŸ™‚ I am post op 3 1/2 weeks now πŸ˜€

Relaxing by the fire with Molly hanging close by πŸ™‚

Speaking of Molly I made her an autumn bandana to wear… I put one of her older ones on for now… and will use this one on Thanksgiving for festivity and fun too ❀

I layered the table runner and completed the machine quilting of the center …

And prepping the binding too….

Then after sewing the binding to the back and trimming it down I started hand quilting holly leaves around the table runner!

I am on the final outer border section now….

The splotches you see in the light grey background is water drying to remove the blue lines πŸ™‚

And here is a close up of the left end of the runner…..

I also finished the grey swirly hearts on either side of the Boho heart center and then marked and started stitching the cross hatching in the heart πŸ™‚ I am pleased with this progress!

Linking this great slow stitching progress to Kathy’s Quilt linky party HERE <<<< Come see what everyone is linking up this week πŸ˜€

I made my daughter a change purse for her change collection….

A closer up view!

I fashioned it to clip onto the d ring on the wallet I am making her … which also features the sunflower fabric πŸ™‚

My sweet Grand… Ellie playing in a box! lol

Have a blessed family time this week and don’t eat too much this week! Thanks for stopping in πŸ™‚

    How Sweet Ellie is, sitting in the box. Funny how kids always love playing with boxes. Your runner is looking lovely. You and Molly, sitting by the fire look so cosy. It is marvellous you are recovering so well. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving with your family, lovely Kathi.
