Thankfull for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is beginning here for me. Two nephews are coming with their families to share Thanksgiving with my family.  One is coming from California and the other from Oklahoma, they are brothers and we haven't seen them for 5 years nor have they seen each other in that long. So we will really have a lot of catching up to do, whew, it's going to be fun. They will leave early Friday morning to drive to Lincoln, NE for the big Iowa/Nebraska game and then leave from there to go home on Sunday..we only get to see them a very short time, but we take what we get and enjoy it!!..Well, I have to close now and get ready to go to the airport, I'm really excited to see the "kids". They will all be here this afternoon.. (The postcard is a very old one out of my grandmother's postcard book)
Sew until next time, I hope you have a "Stitches" kind of day!!!

It Was a Good Bread Day!!

This is what I made this afternoon, 2 loaves of braided bread and a loaf of is also the same thing that I made yesterday and it will be the same thing that I will make tomorrow.  And hopefully, that will be enough bread for my family for Thanksgiving!! It will all go into the freezer until next Thursday.  Ymmmm!!  It smells so good in my house right now, I could gnaw my arm off. I wonder why I didn't make myself a little dinner roll? but I didn't so I guess the smell will have to satisfy me tonight. Maybe I can remember to do that tomorrow!!

Sew until next time, have a "Stitches" kind of evening..

We Remember Veteran's Day

Today, we remember and honor all veteran's who have fought for our country and our freedom. I want to honor my Dad today, he fought in WWII, in the Navy as a SeaBee. I am posting some pictures of him and some you might have already seen in previous posts. In the photo and fabric portrait in his uniform, he was about 28 years old and was taken before he went overseas. The small photo was taken a year or so ago. Dad is in the nursing home right now but working very hard to get his strength back so he can go back to his home. And I know that he will be home before very long.  My husband was in the Army during the Korean War as were many more relatives and friends. Without these veteran's, our country could be a very different place for us to live and enjoy our freedom. So, let us salute the men and women who have served our country, in war and in peace.
This page was made in My Memories Suite software program. You can still register for a chance to win your own copy of the MMS if you go to Monday's post and read how you can do it. You could actually have 4 chances to win, if you do each of the suggested ways to get a chance. Be sure and register to win, it's free and you could be the winner!!  Good Luck!!

My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software Give Away

I'll bet some of you had already guessed what my give away surprise was going to be, right?  I was really 'takin' back' when a week or so ago, I got an email from Liz at My Memories Suite, asking me if I would be interested in hosting a MMS give away.  Those of you who know me, know that I am not a scrapbooker, although I like photos, making things and trying to be creative. Liz offered to give my a free download so I downloaded it and began to play. Needless, to say, I'm hooked on the digital scrapbook program. It's alot of fun and you sure can waste spend a lot of time playing around with it. As with everything, there is a learning curve but it doesn't take long and you will be making fun stuff. I think it will be very good for bloggers as well as scrapbookers.  Here are a couple of pages I made for a garden scrapbook. I think they are pretty neat!  Here's how you can get a chance to win a free copy of the software for your own use.
.Simply visit their site at My, have a look around, come back here and leave a comment about your favorite digital layout, pack or how you would use the program.  You don't have to become one of my followers to leave a comment, but I would really love it, if you would!!
Please make sure that your email address is on your post or available on your profile so that I may contact you, if you win. You can also enter for additional entries if you follow My Memories on their blog or

Then come back here and tell me you follow them in a separate
 comment for each following for additional chances to win.    I don't have a lot of followers so your odds of winning could be pretty good.
