I am also thankful that on Thanksgiving Day, I have family to share the day with.
I have started the 84 snowball blocks for the sashing on the Stitching For Christmas quilt. The blocks are very cute...I am embroidering one with a fireplace now. On the snowball blocks, I may go back and figure out how to use the squares, then cut diagonally after stitching across. I cut little triangles, like the instuctions said, but that is not working too well for me. I think the other way would be faster. Off to ponder!!
