  2. Here in Canada we have already had our Thanksgiving. It was special this year as it was shared with my parents who are both in their late 80's. Blessings to you and yours.

  6. Right now, our plans are up in the air. It all depends on when my step brother can get in town. He recently moved to WV for his job, so we do things whenever he is around.

  8. I will be spending my Thanksgiving with my husband and Brother in Law doing our traditional Lancaster getaway. We started it when my kitchen was out of commission over the holiday, and we have enjoyed it so much that we've done it 4 of the last 5 years. Thanks for the generous giveaways!

  11. When I host Thanksgiving for my family, I love looking at the November cooking magazines for new recipes and then selecting ones I am going to make. Bon Appetit seems to be my favorite "go to" magazine ... love most of their recipes. Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving!

  14. Great pattern! My sister and I alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas, so for Thanksgiving we'll be hosting - that's a day of cooking for me to serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal for ... 4 people! She'll do the same at Christmas ... we're a small but hungry family :-) Thanks for the opportunity!

  17. Cute quilts. I have friends who keep bees so this would be a sweet gift for them. The ruler would be wonderful to have when making this!

  18. Thanksgiving will have just my husband & myself (& the 2 kitties). On Wednesday I cook a whole chicken in my crockpot, so I'll have lots of broth (& giblets) to make gravy, because on Thanksgiving I cook a turkey breast in the crockpot, and even though there's just the two of us, there's not enough gravy from just the breast for my husband. Happy Thanksgiving & thanks for the chance to win.

  20. I really like this pattern! Some patterns are on the order of "ho hum, I'd never bother to make that but I really think I would enjoy making The Bees Knees! Thank you for showing it and giving us a chance to win.
    My Thanksgiving plans are to go to my brother's house along with my daughter and parents, his wife and kids and enjoy good food and good fellowship. Then on the weekend, up to Missouri for my husband's family to get together with more of the same, then Sunday with 'Old Timer's day" at church with more good food and fellowship with friends and family. I'm so thankful for it all!

  41. My favorite Thanksgiving was when my mom's entire family was at Granny's house. My mom had 11 siblings. Each sibling had between 3-6 children. I have 42 cousins and it was a crazy, wonderful time with all of them. Granny's house wasn't large, but somehow we all fit in. We ate in shifts, youngest first and then spent the rest of the day running and having fun outside. Wonderful memory.

  45. How fun the Bees Knees would be to make. We are in FL for the winter and will have two other couples over who don't go back to their families for Thanksgiving. We are have all the traditional foods minus the green bean casserole as my friend makes the most awesome baked beans that are out of this world. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  47. I just received your book "Loose Change" and was so excited....until I found there was a specialty ruler that would be helpful to go with the book. However, disapointment went it's way and I am still excited, I just will have to wait until I can purchase the Five and Dime ruler. I love your patterns using precuts!!! I would love to win this KT Honeycomb ruler and the Bee's Knee's Pattern! Thanksgiving was spent at our neice's with lots of relatives and a special tribute to my neice who just completed her basic traing for the Coast Gaurd!! She was able to be home for Thanksgiving!! midwayfarms@hughes.net

  48. Well Hello there.
    My favortie Thanksgving was when I was 9 y.o. and my birthday fell on Thanksgiving that year. The tradition in our house was Mom would make your favorite meal on your birthday! Mine was spagetti and meatballs, so for Thanksgiving dinner we had spagetti and meatballs. Because birthdays always took priority. I also got my own rocking chair and a Raggedy Ann and Andy doll set, I still have my Ann and Andy dolls.
    Pssssst November has only 30 days not 31.
    Have a great day :)))
