Thanksgiving 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!

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,

  1. What a gorgeous quilt! And so perfect for the holiday. The blue surprised me a little at first, but it just works so well with everything else that now I can't imagine it being any other color. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Your table is so pretty, I really love the quilt. How perfect the blue and brown is for a Thanksgiving table! I like your cornucopia with the little white pumpkins, it's goes so great with your table!

  3. It is all just beautiful. Don't ya love how it all comes together?!

  4. Gorgeous quilt, Dawna. I didn't get the sewing gene, therefore I can't even sew a straight line!
    Your china is exquisite.


Thank you for your comments, they brighten my day.
