I am thankful for much today – I am blessed with a wonderful husband, a loving family & fabulous friends. I count among my friends all visitors that visit my blog. Your visits and comments add much joy to my days.
The weather is gorgeous here today. The sky is blue with a perfect breeze to rustle the drying leaves on the tree in our front yard. I used a few of them again this week on the tablescape. For a tablecloth I used a log cabin style quilt I made 20 years ago.
It was the second quilt I ever made and I am still in love with it. It was actually made first as a tablecloth to go with our wedding china. After a few years I took off the white backing added borders and had my friend Paula quilt it.
Paula is an amazing heirloom machine quilter and uses a domestic machine not a longarm. Visit her blog Batts in the Attic to see some of her incredible work.
She had to constantly re-stencil the acorn and oak leaves I chose for the border. It kept disappearing.
The napkins are made out of one of the fabrics in the quilt. My Limoge Pots de Crème are the perfect size for a tiny serving of pumpkin mousse.
Our wedding china is Tirschenreuth Baronesse, the crystal Lenox Monroe and even the chargers were part of our wedding gifts.
The cornucopia is Longaberger filled with with pumpkins and dried leaves from out front.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Stitch at you Soon,
