Happy Thanksgiving and a small finish

The table is set and I am ready to greet my 21 guests for Thanksgiving.  I have spent the last week preparing, cleaning, shopping, baking, creating the perfect atmosphere to celebrate this wonderful day of Thanks.  I am thankful for so many things but I am super thankful for the health of my family.  Everyone is doing well and that is more than I can ask for. 

Here is a picture of the welcome that will greet everyone.

This is a picture of my favorite Thanksgiving dish.  It is a cranberry sauce dish.  Isn't he the cutest.

These are the table settings.  I am fortunate to have a large enough kitchen to seat everyone at the same time.  I love it!!

My latest finish is "Snow in Love" by LHN.  It is a model for ABC Stitch therapy.  I hope to do some finishing after Thanksgiving.  I avoid Black Friday like it is the plague.  I don't understand the craze and this year they have been talking about it for far too long.  I can't even get over the fact that they have been playing Christmas music before Thanksgiving.  I love Christmas music during the holiday season but let Thanksgiving be it's own holiday.  So, instead of crazy shopping I have decided to cozy up in my stitching chair and stitch the weekend away.  I hope you all enjoy your families and have a wonderful holiday!  Happy Stitching!

Happy Thanksgiving! Everything looks wonderful :) I know you and your company will have wonderful time. Love your sweet finish too :)

My best friend and I do Black Friday ... but not like crazy people lol ... we've been doing it for 20 years. It's very much a tradition these days. We start with breakfast (at a reasonable hour) and then head to our favorite stores for some shopping and then a movie. No kids, no husbands, it's heaven! lol

Everything looks beautiful. Have a wonderful day. I totally agree that Thanksgiving is a very meaningful American holiday, or should be, and it is more and more overlooked every year by the greed and shopping feeding frenzy.

Love Autumn in NY...cute.

I hope you have had a wonderful holiday. I am having a stitchy black Friday as well.So sick of the target commercial with the blond lady. They had the trees up before Halloween her. It is just too commercial for me these days.

I hope you and your family had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Your little turkey dish is very cute!
Lovely stitching on the LHN. This is one of my favourites of the new ornaments.
We don't have Black Friday in Canada but they are starting to now in order to compete with the number of Canadians going stateside. There is no way I'm going though. I hate crowds.
