Bits and Pieces

Starting off here with Aoife in her daddy's care.
Almost out of potholders... sewing away with a bit of help
Found a scrap of Miccosukkee sewing from when I worked on that Indian reservation 30 some years ago.  It has been in my scrap bag until now.

The movers broke my lamp shade.  Last week the new one arrived.
It contributes a lovely glow to my apartment.

All bagged now, ready for next  year....Time is a-flying!!
Did I mention how I love to make potholders...so relaxing.
When people are extra nice to  me, I give them a  potholder or let them pick one out.
Lots of nice people around here...I was down to 5, now up to 11.
I have been in my new apartment for 2 months...Still losing and finding things.
So very happy I moved.  This is the first time in almost 75 years I am spending Thanksgiving without family.  It is a shock.  I was invited to friends, but it was too  much for me to go.
There will be new friends to meet at my new complex.
My daughter is bringing her family here for my birthday...so thrilled.
Happy Sunday evening..xo

I hope you do find someone to spend Thanksgiving with. A great idea to invite people over for that.

I'm so happy to read that you're glad you moved to a new place! I think it's marvelous. It speaks to your strength of spirit and reminds me that there is always a new adventure around the corner. Be well and enjoy your "solo" Thanksgiving with some new friends!
