Thanksgiving Outfit, Corduroy Skirt

Here is me in my Thanksgiving outfit, I just finished the skirt tonight.  It started as a pair of corduroy pants.  I added some cream colored home decor fabric, you can't see the pattern in the picture, but it's really pretty.  I found the sweater at Goodwill for $5, it's from Charlotte Russe!  The pants cost $2.50 at Goodwill also.  I spent $10 on fabric at Walmart, but I only used half of what I bought (forgot that home decor fabric is wider than the regular stuff).  I think a cream colored shirt would look better under the sweater instead of the brown, but I had to work with what I had.

I will not be near my computer tomorrow, so tonight I give you my list of things I'm thankful for:

A family that loves each other and can laugh with each other
To be located closer to family, so we can spend more time together
A grandmother who is 94 years old, she has such amazing stories
Friends, new and old, they make each day better (and facebook to keep in touch!)
The gift of craftiness, it brings me much joy
Of course, I have to add turkey and pumpkin pie (and mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing.......)

Happy Thanksgiving!
