"A" Is For Absence...

....Which is what I have been from Miss Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday. As so often happens, life simply means our given 24 hours never have enough time in them...

But "absence makes the heart grow fonder" as they say and I have missed being a part of the weekly letters and visiting all the interesting postings from everyone. 

"A" for us here at Taylorsoutback has meant a 7 week trip to Alaska which included a very fun side trip to Anchorage with my future daughter-in-law as we shopped for wedding gowns.
"A" has also meant the completion of a very large applique quilt project and preparation for the handquilting portion. 
"A" also the beginning letter of "Abnormal" which is what our weather in Wisconsin has been this Fall...tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we will be around 55...how abnormal is that?

And that is about it - a short entry to be sure...but I wanted to jump in and hope to keep  up with each letter of this round.

Wishing everyone a Amazingly Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I don't quilt very often or very well but I do love it. I think your time has been well spent.

  2. It's supposed to be 52 here in New Hampshire, but we're new here, so I don't know if that's normal. I would think it'd be colder here as well.

    You have some beautiful quilts!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
