Do you celebrate Friendsgiving? If you aren’t familiar with the term, it was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary earlier this year and refers to a Thanksgiving celebration with a circle of friends. There are different theories on the origin of the term ranging from a Twitter post to the popular television show Friends to an ad campaign. Unlike other holidays, there’s no official Friendsgiving date and the traditions are as different as those who celebrate it! After a year like this, why not honor all the occasions that pairs gratitude with friends and family? Here are some ideas for setting your table!
Maybe it’s because I’m spending so much more time at home or maybe it’s the sudden change in weather, but my desire to dress up the house for fall seems to be stronger than ever! Normally, I feel a little regret with taking down summer things and getting ready for fall, but not this year! If you’re like me and ready to embrace the change in seasons, then you’re probably ready to whip up some cozy feeling new projects.
Happy Thanksgiving! It's the time to reflect on all that we are grateful to have in our lives. Whether it's the big things like your family, friends, pets, health and occupation or the small things like a good cup of coffee and early holiday decorating, taking a moment to appreciate what you have is important. This is especially true in times like these. So to all our quilters, thank you. Without you, we wouldn't have the beauty of a good quilt or the excitement of a new die. Today, we want to share a favorite tutorial of ours that captures the sentiment of the season.
Hi, it’s Jen from DizzyQuilter.com. I don’t know about you, but the days are getting shorter, and I’m starting to get pumpkin fever. I’ve got my pumpkin bread recipe out, and my husband is happily using his pumpkin spice creamer every morning. It’s time to start decorating for fall so today I’m making velvet pumpkins, and I’m using my AccuQuilt GO! to keep it easy. Want to play along?
