I'm Back With A Giveaway!

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. 
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

I honestly feel a bit rusty starting out on my blog today.  Going over a week without posting seemed so strange.  But not to worry.  I certainly wasn't bored.  My grandson and daughter kept me plenty busy and entertained.  We had a wonderful visit and got to know our GS#2 even better.  He has a special relations ship with my DH (also known as BeBaw) and would run to the door looking for Bebaw's van.  The house is so quiet now and I began missing them just as soon as they pulled away from the curb.  Hopefully we will all be together again some time in the next few months.  So what's been happening while I've been gone?  I've read a few blogs but I feel as if I'm way behind with all of my blogland friends.  I hope all is well with all of you!

==================================

LITTLE FACT OF THE DAY


Did you know Americans did not invent Thanksgiving?  It began in Canada. Frobisher's celebration in 1578 was 43 years before the pilgrims gave thanks in 1621 for the bounty that ended a year of hardships and death.  Frobisher and early colonists, giving thanks for safe passage, as well as pilgrim celebrations in the US that began the traditions of turkeys, pumpkin pies, and the gathering of family and friends.
There are three traditions behind the Canadian Thanksgiving Day:
1.  Long ago, before the first Europeans arrived in North America, the farmers in Europe held celebrations at harvest time. To give thanks for their good fortune and the abundance of food, the farm workers filled a curved goat's horn with fruit and grain. This symbol was called a cornucopia or horn of plenty. When they came to Canada they brought this tradition with them.
2.  In the year 1578, the English navigator Martin Frobisher held a formal ceremony, in what is now called Newfoundland, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. He was later knighted and had an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean in northern Canada named after him - Frobisher Bay. Other settlers arrived and continued these ceremonies.
3. The third came in the year 1621, in what is now the United States, when the Pilgrims celebrated their harvest in the New World. The Pilgrims were English colonists who had founded a permanent European settlement at Plymouth Massachusetts. By the 1750's, this joyous celebration was brought to Nova Scotia by American settlers from the south.

==================================

WHILE I WAS AWAY....

I received some wonderful squishies.....

I received this wonderful table mat from my swap partner in the Quilted Table Fall/Halloween table topper swap.  Donna used the fat quarters I sent her to create this beauty.  She also included a darling BOO pin, some great note cards and a wonderful 2012 San Diego calender.  Thank you, Donna!

Don't you just love all the kitties and the bright colors?  I won this from Blueberry Patch last month.  I can see several hexie flowers in the future.  Oh my!  Looking at the fabric I realize somehow I didn't include the blue colorway of the top cat fabric.  Thank you so much, Cathy.

And, finally, but certainly not least, I received these wonderful 6" blocks from Anna all the way from The Netherlands.  Anna was my swap partner for August for the 6 Inch Block Swaps Australia.  Love the designs she selected and the colors are perfect.  Thank you, Anna!!

FINAL THOUGHT

Whew!  I made it through.  I have more to share with you but I think I was a bit wordy as it was.  We have had a brief tease by Mother Nature of what autumn will be like.  We had a wonderful rain and some cooler temps - some days only into the 60's.  But we are back into the 80's this week.  Just gotta love that roller coaster.  From shorts to zip-up hoodies and back again to shorts.  I'm never sure which way to dress in the morning.  Even the pups were bundled under their covers for a few days.  Just loved that little bit of a nip to the nose.  I know many of you are already deep into the throws of fall and possibly have even had a bit of snow.  I'm sure the east has or is enjoying the colorful display provided by the changing leaves.  Here, we pretty much don't expect it to stay cool until the end of the month.  Oh heck, it's not unheard of to go Trick or Treating in shorts because it's so warm.  Oh well, it is what it is.  I'll just meander outside to check the temps and see if there are any clouds in the sky.

October's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter.

Linda said...

I think I would have to say the Richard Scarey Line would be the new bundle I would put on my wish list. Raising 3 sons, his books were always a staple around my house.

Linda said...

My favorite Halloween candy? I guess it would be candy corn, although if it counts, I always pick the Butterfingers and Skor mini-bars out of the bag before they have a chance to go out to Trick or Treaters!!!

I am wanting to do something with Blueberry Crumble from Moda. Very pretty colors.

I think out of all the Halloween candy I like black jelly beans. It seems that this is about the only time of year you can find them. I can eat the whole bag by myself. YUM.

Welcome Home, Linda! Well, it feels like you are home to us even if you were home all along...

That little fall quilt is very pretty.

And candy corn it is for me. I love the stuff.

My favorite Halloween candy, hands down, is candy corn. I'm munching on some now :)

Beth said...

The Kaffe Fassett Collective "Sunshine" FQs would be my first choice, though there are so many wonderful sets it is nearly impossible to choose.

My daughter was in New York a few weeks ago and brought back Reese's peanutbutter cups - now I need to find a place to buy them in Sydney.

Julie said...

My favorite is for sure candy corn!

Julie said...

I have my eye on that Lagoon Batik fat quarter bundle. Great give away.

My favorite Halloween candy is Reeses peanut butter pumpkins -- but if my husband finds them they are gone because he LOVES them too. Thanks for hosting yet another great giveaway, Linda.
