Anyone Want This?


It's a small Thanksgiving themed wall hanging I made for Papa Pea's 3rd grade classroom many years ago.

It measures 10" across by 25-1/2" long . . .



. . .  and the three framed squares depict teddy bears dressed in pilgrim garb.  


I machine quilted it and it has a hanging dowel attached. 

'Tis no great shakes as a quilted masterpiece(!), but would look cute and colorful in a child's room.

If you'd like to be included in a drawing for this giveaway, just say so in the comment section.  Maybe also include what you plan on doing for Thanksgiving Day this year.  We haven't decided what our plans will be yet, but I had to laugh when I came across a note I wrote to myself after Thanksgiving last year.  

It said, "If I decide to host Thanksgiving dinner here next year, I'm too dumb to survive.  Plan to go out for dinner and spend the day in total relaxation!"

If any of you (please . . . somebody!) are interested in this little wall hanging, I'll draw a name this coming Thursday night and announce it Friday morning, November 8th.

Any takers??  Gobble, gobble, gobble!

How fast am I?? :) I would love it so put my name in, please.
This Thanksgiving, as with every Thanksgiving, we're having our parents and most of our children coming here. This is my holiday to host. I have a large tom turkey in the barn that may be the centerpiece.

I love love love it! And I sure do enjoy your posts! We are Canadian so we already enjoyed our Thanksgiving, but I will still hang it proudly for yours if I win! Thanks so much for this great blog, I really enjoy reading every one of them!

odiie - You ARE fast! (But I've heard that about you . . . hee-hee. Ooof, bad joke.) Thanks for entering the drawing. So far, your chances look very good!

P.S. Run, Tom Turkey, run!

Mama Pea said...

Tracy - Thank you so much for your nice words! Folks may look at you funny if you start decorating for the U.S. Thanksgiving . . . but I'll leave that up to you! ;o}

My mother in-law loves bears she has them all over her room. She lives in assisted living home and this is just the right size for the door to her room. This is the first year we will be having a turkey that was raised and dressed by us. That is going to be an adventure in it's self. LOL

What a cute wall hanging...we don't know what we will be doing this Thanksgiving. We had thought about just staying at home and doing a non traditional dinner.

We call my 18 year old daughter "the bear" and has bears all ofer. Thankgiving, I will be cooking at my father in laws up in Taos,

Mama Pea said...

Michelle - When my mom was in assisted living, she kept a seasonal hanging I made on her door, too.

I'm betting your homegrown turkey is going to be super!

Mama Pea said...

Wendy - When I think of all the work that goes into the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a non-traditional dinner sounds really good! (I must be getting lazy!)

Mama Pea said...

Erlinda - That's really kind of you to do all the cooking at your FIL's. That's harder to do in someone else's kitchen!

How cute! I'd love that for my elementary library where I work! Our 380+ kids would love it!!! We're doing a nice, small gathering here with our adult kids. Then sleep in Friday and go to a movie :)

I can pay for shipping too!

Since I am trying to simplify, please don't enter me (I love my potholders though!) I would love to change up our Thanksgiving which usually consists of too much food and family that can't stand each other so they don't speak. I would like to do finger foods and movies on the DVD player or maybe a night at an out of the way lodge up the river. My mother would freak though!

Mama Pea said...

Little Homestead in Boise - Blessings to you for all the work you do with little and big kids! Exhausting, I know, but rewarding.

P.S. Shipping won't be much 'cause it's light in weight, but thanks for the offer . . . not necessary! Thank you.

Mama Pea said...

Ruth - Ah, yes, simplifying! I'm on that kick, too, but with a husband who leans more toward having back-ups of everything, it's a challenge! (His way is probably better though.)

P.S. I vote for your night at an out of the way lodge! Sounds heavenly.
