Today is preparation day. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, and I’m thrilled that sweet hubby and I will be surrounded by our beloved family: my mom, DD#1 and her hubby, and expectant DD#2 and her hubby. Being surrounded by family is one of my favorite things. While I look forward to serving them special foods, I don’t want to be stressed out and in the kitchen the whole time either, so I’ll be spending time today getting many of the dishes ready ahead of time.
I was thankful that I finished painting this quilt top yesterday, so today will be a time of preparation for it, too. I’ll be choosing a backing fabric and basting everything together. If all goes well, I may even get to quilt the major outlines, too. Dare I dream that I might even be able to get further?
Oh, wait. I completely forgot about something I have to do in the afternoon. That’s okay. There’s no reason to rush.
