Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all are having a wonderful turkey filled, family filled Thanksgiving! Every 18 years or so I have to get to the kitchen and finish cooking the dinner that my Momma started.... last time it was cause she was in labor with Gabby Abby. My Uncle Les still says that meal is sitting in his stomach undigested like a brick after 18 years. Tomorrow is her birthday.
Today I get to have a go at dinner once again. Momma got it started, and I have to finish it. She has to go get my Grandmother ready to transport to a Pittsburgh hospital. She has had many complications with her hip replacement surgery and now the doctors have decided that it needs to come out. The infection is not responding to two different broad spectrum antibiotics and no one here in Johnstown wants to touch it. The replacement has to come out and she has to wait 6 weeks or so and heal then they will try again with another one. She won't have any surgery right away because she needs to be off her blood thinning meds for a while before they can operate. She also is very bad about losing blood when she has surgery and since her first surgery they have given her eight units. The original surgery and blood loss also caused her to have a heart attack post-op. This has been pretty stressful for my Mom, who is in charge of all decisions. Please say a prayer for them today.

These are a few woven pieces I made for a make and take project a while ago but thought they would be good on today's Thanksgiving blog post. They are both cut from Sizzix red dies and woven with Fall stack papers.
