Happy Thanksgiving

 Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in Blog land. If you travel, please be safe.
I have one more craft show to do the day after Thanksgiving and that is it for the year.  I may do one in the Spring of the year because it benefits my grandson's school.
Each one has been different that is for sure. What you think will sell doesn't and what you think won't does. It is hard to judge people any more.
I hope you all have enjoyable day tomorrow. We are going to our son's for Thanksgiving and I only have to take the veggie tray. My daughter-in-law and daughter are doing the cooking. We will call my son in Louisiana later in the day so everybody can talk to him that wants to. He is kept busy and that is the main thing.
 This is my latest Christmas tea towel. It sold at the first craft show. I have two more in the next picture that I have ready for the next  one. If they don't sell, then I will be listing them in my etsy shop. It has been neglected the last few weeks.
I will find out Friday evening if I have one of my baby quilts done. She thinks she wants the border in pink because it is their first grand daughter. It may mean changing the border on one of the quilts I have done, but if that is what it takes I will do it.
I may have another one to do, but I will have time because she is only two months along. She is having a boy so I got to check to see what I have that will work for a boy.
I promise I will be visiting after this weekend is over. I have been working longer hours at work which helps the paycheck, but not some of the other  things that I like to do. I have been visiting, but just not able to leave comments. Some work and some don't.
I got soaked twice from the rain we had and caught a cold. I think I am getting over it, but I have felt a little rough. I thought I was going to have to go to the doctor, but so far I haven't.

What do you think of my winking Santa. I think if I do another one I will do the eyes in a satin stitch. The pattern is very old. The lady was in her late 90's that had it. I thought he was cute. 
Have a great day tomorrow and I am going to enjoy the day and my long weekend. I am off until Monday.
