Adopting Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving: a holiday that the UK would benefit from embracing.  I know we can't just borrow and copy cultural and historical celebrations wily nily but there is an awful lot of moaning and negativity that can go on and a holiday where we all take a step back and reflect on the positive could only be good, especially as it is accompanied by a giant meal!  So what better day to say thankyou to Rebecca of Sew Festive who sent me my Pillow Swap pillow!  She followed my hints for an Autumn colour way, my favourite Field Study print (Minds Eye in Toast) is in there and Heath for the background.  It is a happy addition to my sewing space which had sunlight today between the heavy rain.
And a quiet little nod, hugs kisses and thank you to my lovely husband who made this Moomin paper craft for me at the weekend and is an enormous support through my many moments of doubt and questioning.  He, Lula and our pets are my world  x

  8. I brought back some Moomin coffee cups from my Sweden/Finland trip this summer.
    I have one at work. Everytime I make tea, I smile.
    I love that your husband gets Moominworld.

  9. Lucky you!! That pillow is gorgeous!

    Also, love that you are adopting Thanksgiving but in other parts of the empire (insert cough that sounds like Canada), real Thanksgiving is the second Monday in October. :-)

  10. I just saw this post [hectic life right now!] and just wanted to say that I had no idea that the Field Study print was your favorite, but coincidence of coincidences, I included it because it's my favorite print from the line :)
