It is cool in the deep south. It is 11:00 a.m. and it is 48 degrees. The next few days it is going to be cool and the nights are darn right cold. I am tough though.......I am from the state of Iowa where it really gets cold. That is one reason I don't live there anymore. Love to visit, but ice and snow and bitter cold just is not for me. I visit in the summer if I have a choice and actually the best time is fall. It is beautiful with the color changes and the weather is perfect.
I went to a class in Jasper, TX on Saturday. She was teaching a quilt as you go (top quilt). It is an easy quilt. We had a great time. It rained most of the day which actually was good. East Texas and West Louisiana is in dire need of rain.
I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Beth asked me to come to her house if I had not made plans. She only had an elderly aunt and uncle, her husband and me. Beth owned restaurants in the past and she is a super cook. She could feed me everyday except I would weigh 500 pounds. After dinner her husband, aunt and uncle retired for their naps. Beth and I moved to her sewing room where we chatted and sewed. What a wonderful way to spend a holiday.
Hope all is well on your end..................

My house has a double garage and two carports. I park in a carport. It is easier for me to get in. The garage is attached so it will be handy day or night for my quilting use. Sounds like a plan.
Hope all of you who attended the Houston Festival had a good time and found something exciting. Besides George, I found a big stack of Luna Notte fabric by Moda. I had wanted this fabric because it is so gorgeous and never got around to buying it. It is almost impossible to find it now. You can find a piece here and a piece there but that is about it. I am thrilled. I have no idea what I will do with it, but I will use it next year.
Hope all is well on your end.
