Fortunately, there's only a couple of the these types at my table. How about you?

Before I start last minute Thanksgiving organizing, here's a few bits of information that are on the top of my brain this morning.

Equilter is having a fabulous Thanksgiving sale, with many fabrics at 50% off. The collection of blenders is particularly wonderful; there's a full selection of several beautiful lines. I know it's ironic that I should post this in light of recent complaints about my stash, but I didn't say I was buying. I'm just sharing.

Kathy Loomis has been publishing a series of posts about the trend in quilt design and art quilting today. Some sacred cows have been gored. Very thought-provoking, whether you agree or not. I do, mostly.

Personal notes: I finished the binding of my IT! piece last night while watching the finale of Dancing with the Stars. Perfect timing. Reveals begin Sunday. And Peppermint Stars is going to Road to California. This was very good news, not really expected.

Finally, Happy Thanksgiving, safe travels, good eating, and pleasant company to everyone.

Not really expected - pushaw. That one could be accepted into any show.

Michael showed me that cartoon the other day. Heck, here in California, that's a typical Thanksgiving table.

Congratulations on having your quilt accepted to the Road to CA show. It's a beauty and deserves the recognition.

All good stuff! Thankfully no one has any dietary restrictions (or restraint) at my house so should be a good day.

Take care and Happy Thanksgiving.

Congratulations on Peppermint Stars road trip!

I had to chuckle at the cartoon; we have a couple of lactose intolerant, but that's pretty easy to get around.

Happy Thanksgiving, Kay!

Yea, but everyone can eat the pie!

I laughed at your cartoon but my feeling is that if you have restrictions or preferences you either eat around them or bring your own. And congratulations on getting into Road. Your quilt is perfect for it.
