I had  a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, made all the usual goodies we like..except that for the three of us I decided to just make "Hot Turkey wings"with homemade tomato sauce  instead of a whole turkey that we wouldn't eat..Macaroni and cheese, candied yams, Stuffing with cranberry sauce, Collards and Cornbread. Cecil made sweet tea and yes I drank some ;o)  .(Hey, it seems to me I'm eating "Thanksgiving" all the time :o) It was a good day.
Today , the day after we are eating leftovers that I didn't freeze and it worked out just fine. I also wrestled with the loom and got it all sleyed up :o)...bent my little fat butt out of shape getting down on the floor to get the treadles strung up..I'll have to re do them over Tomorrow, tonight I'm just too tired to go over them tonight..They aren't pulling up separate enough...Ugh!  No Pictures today :o(

Sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving, Ginny! :-) I hope you can get things figured out with your loom. Sometimes it works best to wait and try again on another day when you've rested. :-)

We're glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving with Cecil. You're the master of that loom. You'll make it work, I know it!

Jody,
We had a wonderful day and someone to share it with.
I think I've figured out the problem, yeah! I'm the master of that loom ( would you mind telling it that, it may not want to listen to me , it's a blockhead :o)

Robin,
I did have a good day and I did rest pretty good, so now I'll try and tackle my problems with the loom.

Happy After Thanksgiving. I also feel like I eat Turkey pretty often. We had a great spread this year. All my sisters worked to get the meal together by 6pm. As my mom always says.. We take all day(and week) to prepare the meal and yall finish it off in less than an hour. I am off to ravelry to find you♥

Cici,
you should find me there,look for Patch2do , I haven't been there in a while so there is nothing new on it.

Mrs Pickles,
I was able to get some sleep and woke up early, which means I'll be tired again tonight and go to bed early, somebody around here is getting old :o)

Congrats on the progress with your loom! The biggest job is getting it ready to go!

Love your Thanksgiving menu. I'm amazed you were allowed to do the wings instead of the whole bird! If it's just Dan and me, I buy the smallest one I can get. :)
