Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians and to everyone else too as we all have much to be thankful for. It is  a gorgeous sunny day with almost summer like temperatures , wonderful and I am very grateful!!
 Yesterday we took a drive out to the ocean and the pictures I am about to share are not exactly the ocean but  the inner harbour and swamp lands as I love how they look this time of year . The swamp grasses turn a lovely golden color just gorgeous.
Ok this is not the best picture as it doesn't show the golden color as well as in person.
 A little better color in this one , I need to learn the settings on the camera to make the most of shots like this.
 A lovely pond a beaver is making home , can you spot his den in the far right hand corner ? You can see the leaves have changed a bit more but still lots of green .
 This is Cape John and it reminds me of the shores of PEI somewhat as the banks are a red color but not quite as red as in the island .
 This is the only sewing I did this weekend , I just had to make this little placemat after seeing one made by my friend Diane, I went straight out and bought the Fons and Porter magazine as there are a couple of other projects in there that have my name written all over them :-0 This was real fun to make and I do have another project well on its way but will show it when it is complete . So in a nut shell that was my weekend , how was yours? I hope it was great . Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
Hugs Sheila
