Hello from California! I am on the road again – attending a conference in Laguna Beach, CA. I know, I know, my life is rough. Anyway – to get to Orange County, we flew through LAX to facilitate a visit with our friends (Michele and David) who live in L.A. Since we were going to be staying with them for the night, I wanted to bring them a little gift. And guess what? I had the perfect idea.
If you read my blog post this past Sunday – you may remember me discussing the fact that this year the first night of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fall on the exact same day. This happens VERY rarely – so it’s kind of a big deal. People have even given it a name: “Thanksgivukkah.”
Since Michele and David are Jewish and will be hosting a large number of family members for Thanksgivukkah. I thought they would be the perfect recipients for some Happy Thanksgivukkah kitchen towels of my design. So the night before we were set to depart – I stayed up very late cranking out some Happy Thanksgivukkah towels. I think they turned out pretty cute – but I plan to modify the design a bit to increase the space between the arms of the menorah so that it will be easier to trim the applique fabric. But despite the fact that I couldn’t get a very clean cut around the applique fabric – the gift was a hit. Michele and David can’t wait to use the towels on the big day.
Know anyone who might be celebrating Thanksgivukkah this year? I would love to hear your thoughts.
