Gratitude For Blessings

I love waking early enough to see the light of the day starting with such beauty.  Gratitude for the ability to see and recognize this beauty. 

 

 

It has been leaf season in my world. I have really enjoyed being outside working, breathing fresh air and playing catch with my sweet girl, Aspen, while filling bag after bag of leaves.

First week for leaf collection.

 

 

Second week of collection. Gratitude I have such great shade trees that provide shade and beauty to my yard. More gratitude that I am able to spend great time outside working in my yard. And Aspen loves playing with the leaf scoops and frisbee.

 

 

Finally finished quilting my daughter Kelli and son (in law) Tim’s wedding quilt. Did not want to mail it to them so hand delivered it. Gratitude to be able to see them, spend time with them, and feel loved with my family.

 

 

The back of the quilt has the signed wishes, hopes, and advice for the their marriage and love for each other. Took me longer to make than I had anticipated, but am ecstatic with the look and feel of such a quilt to wrap them up in huge love from their friends and family.

 

Leaving to to take the quilt to them was a bit stressful as I had to be at the airport at 4am.  Once I arrived, having a sign to locate who they were was so helpful!  (They have such a great sense of humor).  I have huge gratitude for the wonderful children I have!

So, I have a day or two before I finish the next client quilt and start on the next project.  Am hoping to change the website a bit so that I can list some items in a shopping area for you (pantographs, pincushions, patterns, etc.).  Hope it will go smoothly.  I am not the best when it comes to technology.  I would rather be Quilting!

My schedule for longarm Quilting is filling for next year.  If you would like something quilted in January, I have one spot available.  Call me and let me know if you would like it.  It is for January 15, 2018……can you believe we are finishing this year already?

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving holiday.  I know that everyone says they are thankful for this or that at this time of year, but I try to be thankful for every day I have.  Some days are better than others, for sure.

In order for me to be thankful, I must recognize ALL the blessings that surround me each day!
