These unique (and totally safe) tea lights would be a great table accent. They are made entirely in the hoop and stitch up quickly. The Turkey Legs Towel is also adorable and another great idea for a hostess gift.

There are plenty of Thanksgiving designs for hand stitchers, too. Owls have gained popularity of late and these cross stitch hooties will make cute accents on dinner napkins (left). The 7-inch square Thankful embroidery pattern sampler (right) would look lovely in a frame or as the centerpiece of a wall hanging.

Yet another work of heart that any hostess would appreciate, the hand-stitched pie crust recipe uses the hoop as a frame (left) while the November cross stitch forms the centerpiece for a quick-pieced quilt or wall hanging (right).

Quick and easy, this Thanksgiving Sampler is another cross-stitch pattern that would look as good framed and hanging on the wall as it would on a table runner.

Whether it is pilgrims or Native Americans, youngsters will enjoy these Hunibears dolls. Stitched on plastic canvas, they hold up much better than their paper doll counterparts.

After Thanksgiving dinner, the young crowd can also enjoy the game. There are nearly 20 sets of Hunibears in NFL garb.
