Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!
I hope that this Thanksgiving Day, even if you don’t celebrate it the way we do here in the States, is a beautiful and happy day for you and yours, and that you have many reasons to be thankful in your life, too.
Needle ‘n Thread – and the community we have all built around it – is one of the greatest blessings of my life. I am grateful to each one of you for keeping me motivated, inspired, and always learning! Thank you so much for being a very special part of my life!
I decided to resurrect my Hoop Turkey this year, to send you my Thanksgiving Greetings. I like him.
(I’m going to like his sousing even better, come supper time.)
My dad and I will spend Thanksgiving Day with family & friends at my sister’s house, where we all gather in a cheerful bunch of who-knows-how-many (usually around 20 or so) for visiting, dinner, and whatever type of entertainment develops organically – playing games, maybe even getting musical around the piano. Who knows!
To pass on some of the holiday cheer, here’s another little I Spy puzzle for you, and a jigsaw down below, too.
If you click on that photo, you’ll get a much larger version.
I have to thank my Favorite Brother Ever (I can say that easily, as he’s my only brother) for taking the photo. I know he doesn’t like taking top-down photos, so I really appreciate it. We’re going to mix things up for the Christmas one, I think, and try something different this year. We’ll see how it goes!
Can You Spy These?
Beeswax bits (in total, six) and seven tools for cutting;
14 wooden spools for threads, and thirteen turkeys strutting.
Pumpkins round, both big and small, but none of them in pies,
There are fourteen floating hereabouts; find them with your eyes!
Tweezers four and a couple squirrels; seven spools of plastic;
If you can find five laying tools, you’re doing quite fantastic.
Birds abound! Nineteen around! They’re scattered far and wide.
You’ve already found thirteen of them – only six are left that hide.
Spiders four – whew! no more! – they’re black and creepy crawly;
An aficot, a reindeer small, and a crab that’s looking jolly.
Seventeen pins that poke and prod and ten old keys a-rusting;
Two ripping tools that you can use, in case your seams are busting. (Yeah, it’s a stretch…)
If you’re a jigsaw puzzle fan, here’s this year’s image in jigsaw format.
For those celebrating Thanksgiving today, I hope it is a happy one! And even if you’re not celebrating the same way, I wish you many wonderful blessings worth celebrating!
Thank you so much for being a part of my Needle ‘n Thread journey!
PS: Weekend Sale Coming Up!
Tomorrow I’m launching the First Ever Needle ‘n Thread full-shop sale. I’m a little nervous since it’s a first, but I hope it provides you with an opportunity to pick up some coveted needlework goods with a discount.
I’ll be publishing the discount code in tomorrow’s post and email, around 10:00 am central time (11AM east coast; 8AM west coast) so that West Coast friends don’t miss out, especially for the tangible goods. Since I don’t normally ship internationally, I’m including all downloads in the sale as well, so that overseas friends can join in, too.
This is the way it will work: all in-stock items (tangible goods and downloadable PDFs) will be on sale for 15% off, until Monday at midnight central time or until they are sold out (whichever comes first).
You’ll find all the details in tomorrow’s post!
