No matter where you are, there’s always a reason to celebrate Thanksgiving, so even if you’re not here in the US, I hope you have a very happy day full of many blessings!
I’m so grateful for our wonderful community we’ve built around Needle ‘n Thread! You are such a special part of my life, and I hope you know that! It’s been a rough year for so many of us, but I hope that you can find much to be thankful for and that you find some joy and contentment as the year comes to a close.
Last year, I started putting together these holiday eye-spy games, with a jigsaw puzzle to go with it. So, for your Thanksgiving treat, here’s this year’s Eye Spy. Read the ditty and see if you can find all the stuff! (Or just check for my mistakes!)
If you click on the image above, you’ll get a Really Big version of it, to make it easier to scour.
And here’s the list:
We’ll kick off the game
With four pegs for a frame,
Two squirrels and a nest full of eggs;
A sunflower blooming,
A hive with bees zooming,
And four spiders with eight little legs.
Six leaves that are green,
Two clocks, and an acorn that’s tiny.
Two butterflies flitting,
A pine cone just sitting,
18 apples all plump, red, and shiny.
Thirty pins here and there,
Five scissors to share,
Laying tools – I think there are seven.
An aficot handy,
A line full of candy,
And a small piece of sunshine from heaven!
And a Jigsaw!
For those who enjoy jigsaw puzzles, you’ll find my Thanksgiving 2020 Eye Spy online jigsaw puzzle here. I hope you enjoy it!
If you’re floundering about looking for something to do (maybe waiting for time to dig into that pumpkin pie?), and you want more needlework-related eye-spy puzzles, you might enjoy the list below. The photos improved as I got the hang of this, so the first one is a bit fuzzy (and there’s no jigsaw), but they’re still fun!
Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours!
Today, I’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving with my local family and friends at my sister’s house. I’m taking a few new games along, so hopefully, we’ll have a bit of fun. It’ll be somewhat subdued, I suppose, since it’s our first holiday without Mom, but we do have much to be thankful for in my family, and plenty of reasons to celebrate – and Mom would be the first person to say so. It should be a good day!
For those who asked, yes, I ended up having foot surgery yesterday to remove a needle from my foot. It’s a bit sore, but I’m sure it will improve with just a little time and rest. Thanks for your solicitude! Here’s hoping I can still get everything together for the big launch on Saturday! If that changes, I will let you know, but I don’t anticipate that it will.
I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
