Happy Thanksgiving 2010

A Thanksgiving display in our hallway ~ can you see
the REAL Maple leaves my dear cuz brought us from their yard?

I know I am posting this a little late and our Sunday is over but just wanted to post to wish all my Canadian friends


~ well, it is still Sunday in Canada : )

We had a lovely day with my Mum and my dear cousin and
her wonderful husband, on holiday here from Canada
...it was indeed very special
to have them
spend this day with us.

“Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.”
Edward Sandford Martin

Blessings to one,
Blessings to all,
Blessings especially during this fall!

My First Fabric Fall Swag

I have been cutting odd pieces of fabric into 2 x 6 inch strips for a few days
and today I finally put it all together into this window decoration for Autumn.
I think the effect is stunning, well worth the effort, although
my hand was a bit numb from tying all the knots!
Here is where I got my inspiration, great lady and wonderful blog...

You can tie the strips as close as you please. Ribbons or other decorative tie-ons can be added for extra effect.

Make sure you start off with extra string so that you have enough to make it hang nicely. I also made mine a double strand for added strength.

I suggest you start from the middle and work your way towards the edges, that way the colours will be even and you can measure better.
