You could say that the 90 year women in the middle 
of these two, started it all (of course with her late husband Merrill..)
(L) Dallas Scott, Margie, the Swede
Our family
Hunter, aka..the pie man
delivered the most amazingly
beautiful and tasty pies.

Didn't you have dessert first, with your
 Thanksgiving feast?

I made these caps & hats for our Pilgrim family

Autunm Banners & Pendants

Once again....
This old china hutch has become a great prop for holiday decorations,
my kitchen never looked more festive!

Miniature pendants in fall colors

This banner string took me an hour to make..it was really a
 challenge of wits, having the patience with all the thread cutting.

Mr. & Mrs. Pilgrim are happier with the new additions.
Next post.... Thanksgiving day

Pre Prep..

Two weeks till the feast

Thanksgiving dinner is first and foremost about the food.
 I am hosting this years family gathering.

I really needed to update my table linens. 
I am not that inspired with this holiday to sew but I decided that 
a couple of new table runners would brighten up the atmosphere.
Multi colored leaf runner.
Optional gold rimmed setting.
(I only have enough for 4.) 

Orange print fabric I had in my stash, it was
barely enough for a runner.
I gathered the glass birds to see if that could
work as a center piece.

A potpourri of leaves, bark, mesh-mash of autumnal things.

The old bird gets center stage on this trial place setting.

I like the thought of using different print napkins at each place.

The china was inherited from my sweet 90 yr. old mother-in-law.
My next post will be props for my turkey day photo booth.

I Fall onto....

my couch this time of year to gear up for 
the long days that I will spend inside.

I took a short trip to the Provo Library, love this building. It used to be the 
Brigham Young Academy back in it's day.

The city rebuilt and renovated it to 
become a library and an event place.

That's Brigham Young in front statue.

Who wouldn't want to learn how American
 started their trade relationship with China!

The cover of this book was like a magnet to me.
The introduction is really informative, but I lost 
interest in its LOOOONG chapters.

This book is about a year in time in a small area that a biologists
will visit and document the change that occurs in nature.
I like it so far.

and so begins the transition from Autumn to Winter..........
