Good Morning to you! In years past, each November I have focused on Thankful posts every day; somehow I totally missed it this year. I do, purposely, try to be thankful for the blessings each day holds. How about you? One of the things I am thankful for is having been born with a love of textures and crafts that would be considered handiwork. As a young girl, I can vividly remember giving my mom an apron one Christmas that I had done embroidery on. Throughout my high school years, I was always trying my hand at macrame, knitting, crocheting etc. In college I got into weaving and crewel. It it no surprise then that this evolved in quilting. I started this passion when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, 35 yrs ago. It went by the way as I learned needlepoint, cross stitch and pulled thread, when my girls were little. Fourteen years ago, I began quilting in earnest and I can say I've loved it, not very good at it or as prolific as some of my friends, but love it. Here is my latest block-one of many; it is called Birds of the Air. The pic was taken with my IPhone, so is off center-sorry.
So today I give thanks that we are all endowed with certain gifts. Mine has always enabled me to give quilts to my family that are works of love.
I hope that you use the gifts you've been given to bless others and find joy.
Give thanks today!
