Thanksgiving Finishes

One of the simple pleasures of a long weekend is having the time to sit and stitch! I love everything about this new design from Nan of Threadwork Primitives and really enjoyed stitching it this month. I will enjoy it for a few days before the turkeys go away and is replaced by Christmas decor.
Even the back is cute!
Tis the season for lighting ceremonies! Thanksgiving evening we mingled with thousands to see the amazing Plaza lighting ceremony, a wonderful Christmas tradition!

Last night we attended the Mayor's Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Crown Center and were very thrilled that Mark's quintet was part of the pre-lighting entertainment.

The weather wasn't bad and there was a huge turn-out for the ceremony. The tree is very beautiful and serves as a fundraiser for a variety of charities that help families in need have a happy holiday. 
After the ceremony the performers and city officials were invited to attend a party at the American Restaurant at the top of Crown Center. I was not expecting that and certainly wasn't dressed for the occasion but you don't get a chance like that every day so I went!
