Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving 
from this southern bird!

This fine feathered friend was happy to say hey but cant stick around for dinner.

He has other fish to fry.

I know Im being a little silly but I was awarded a huge honor the other day.

#1 commentator on the blog So I married a Craft Blogger.

This rather dubious honor came about because I can never resist commenting with a little biting whit on Trevor's rather ironic and often sarcastically written blog.  His posts reflect a man's and husbands classic confusion with what women and their wives do when it comes to crafting and sewing.  If you don't know his wife Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts you should check out her blog.  She is really very crafty and sweet and funny herself.  But then she would have to be to be married to Trevor.  Oh my.  Just writing about his blog gets my sarcasm up.  

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving day with family and friends.  I am thankful to be able to express myself on this blog and share projects.

The never ending wedding

*Ive been trying to post this all week since before my sisters wedding.  But the few moments I had time to my internet has been spotty.  I lost half of the post with the  pictures because it wouldnt save.  So pretend it is last Friday.  LOL!  Wedding post to come soon.

My sisters wedding is tomorrow.  Im excited and relieved.  Excited for her future happiness and relieved because there seems to be a lot of stress associated with wedding planning.  Take my maid of honor dress which I went to pick up, again, today.  First time the dress didnt fit.  Despite the sample dress STILL fitting me perfectly, the one ordered of the same size did not.  They said the sample was all stretched out.  Mmm, lot of stretch. So they ordered a different size.  Now the top of the dress was way too big.  So they said they would take it in.  A large chain store specializing in dresses and alterations for those dresses should know what they are doing right?  Wrong.  Went to pick up my dress today.  Tried it on and the 'fitting' was ridiculous!  The sides of the bust were bulging with extra fabric and boning.  I look down and see large WHITE stitches just inside the tops edge of my very PLUM dress!  I mean really!  So tonight, between the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner I will attempt to pick it up again.  Luckily its close to the restaurant.

So here is some eye candy from a couple of weeks ago. 

 I found these awesome containers at a yard sale and bought them along with a ceramic white with green lid tea canister, four pieces of silver plate and two advertising thimbles all for $2!  You know my motto-Why spend $50 when you can spend 50 cents!  The middle one without the lid will be a thread catcher somewhere.

Extra!  Fun news!  Do you subscribe to Julie at Intrepid Thread's newsletter?  If not check it out. Her online store is one of my favorite places to get fabric from.   This month I have a pattern for a Simply Charming Tree skirt.  

The newsletter usually comes out on or around the 15th of the month and usually has some nice patterns in it.

***Saturday is the Color Run in Charlotte!  Can't wait!!

Awesome wedding weekend!!!
