In this time of year to reflect on what we have to be thankful for...
I'm thankful that my mom taught me to sew, so long ago that I don't even remember learning. I'm thankful that creativity was valued and cultivated in my childhood. I'm thankful that my quilting is something that helps me find balance in my life. I'm thankful that my kids share my love of quilting. (Photo above: I took them to see my friend Mel Beach's Challenge Yourself lecture and trunk show and my daughter enjoyed the fact that Mel used the same fabric in her mini quilt that R had used on the back of her own quilt.) I'm thankful for the countless quilters and artists who inspire me, both at my guilds and online through blogs and Instagram. I'm thankful for the individuals in the online quilting community who I'm able to connect with through blogging and Instagram.
In a month that has been very hectic for me, I am thankful for those few minutes when I can sneak away to the sewing machine. I've made the smallest of progress on this project which I hope to finish in time to submit to QuiltCon.
Thank you for visiting!
