The day after...........

Was anyone else dragging the day after Thanksgiving?  I sure was.  I managed to get a Trip Around the World quilt cut for a friend and sewed a couple more rows of my batik Winding Ways while I had some pep.  I spent more time looking at quilt books than anything else.

You all convinced me yesterday to give the skeleton scraps I showed to my friend.  She will be here on Monday, art quilters' day at my house.  I will go on to the large scraps and yardage.  Thanks for the help!!

You made the right decision about those scraps. I love the fabrics for the Trip Around the World! So nice of you to cut them for a friend. I had a lot of energy yesterday, but that is because I didn't eat any turkey the day before. (We already celebrated Thanksgiving last month) You probably ate too much of that triptophan-laden poultry.

Wanda and Hetty, They say that isn't true now. LOL. It is instead that a noirmal Thanksgiving dinner with all the sides is over 4000 calories and that is what makes you so tired. Between the pie and all the salads and fixings I can see how that happens. I am a scrap saver and they can be overwhelming with the amount at times. Chris

Nope, no dragging here. We were still at my parents house. And given the fact that I was quite restrained with how much I consumed on Thanksgiving, I think that might have lead to my pep. Although, I wish I could have been home to sew a little. However, we are home today and that is in the plan!! Love the strips!

nice colors of strips that you have. I was dragging yesterday too and I didn't even cook on Thanksgiving.

Love those strips, is that a Negley fabric?

I had a very light dinner and didn't drag yesterday either, I had an early doctor's appointment. There were only 3 cars in the entire medical complex - his office was the only one open, LOL. Since I only went to the grocery store afterwards, I avoided the Black Friday crowds. Was able to get a good bit of sewing done [patting self on back]. Sew forth and sew on!

For someone who was dragging, you sure get a lot done. All I did was sit in a comfy chair and hand embroider for hours. Only got up for left-overs. Yum!

I got a little sewing done and some crocheting.
Love the range of fabrics for the new quilt.

I agree with Laura W. Your idea of dragging is most times my whole day of work. *L*

Glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving.

So now it is 2 days after Thanksgiving... and I do not know which way to turn... And now we have Christmas to look forward to... doing it all over again.

I always enjoy studying your graduated color strips, seeing how each blends into the next piece of fabric.

re: yesterdays scraps... They sure make an artistic photo and I can see them being sprayed with an adhesive and pressed down on a sheet of art paper. They are so narrow... will your friend top stitch them into place ? Or how will she use them ? Tell her one of your blogging friends is really curious.

I NEVER drag or am let-down after Thanksgiving - I am always thrilled that the cooking is done, I have food in the frig., and won't have to cook for days, and have several days off! 8-))

Glad you are letting go of the skeletons ...

Transition ... Thanksgiving/fall to Christmas/winter ... always a challenge on a short time frame ...
