Last Saturday, in my Aunt and Uncle's home in Green Lake, at 5am, I woke in time to see my family off for deer hunting.
I set up my sewing machine in the window, waiting for the sun to rise to snap this picture...
I paused to tend the fire.
I paused to tend to the dog.
I paused to take a nap.
Slowly the rows of my quilt were joined.
And before the sun set I had a quilt top.
And when the hunters arrived home with their deer (4 big bucks), I oohed and aahed at their size and their antlers. And the hunters oohed and aahed at my quilt. We may not have felt as much admiration as we expressed, but being together made me thankful. Happy thanksgiving, ya'll!
