I’m Thankful for Today


I love having a specific day to say thanks.  It helps me remember to think about what I have. 


And that makes me happy. 


Right now, I am together with family.  And it’s comfortable.  I love chatting and laughing and reminiscing and, of course, eating good food.  And yeah, I don’t even mind the teasing and the old embarrassing stories that are shared.  And believe me, there are plenty to be told amongst all 7 of us siblings. 


I wasn’t going to hop on the computer at all today.  But I just had to for one second.  And say thanks.


Blogging has been such a great outlet for me.  And such a nice way to release some of these pent up ideas…….and share them.  Sometimes they’re crazy ideas and sometimes they seriously fail.  But you have all been so kind.  And so encouraging.  And many of you have even become friends of mine.  I know I say this a lot……but I seriously wish I could lasso you all in, cram you inside my family room, and craft/sew with you in person.  And talk and laugh and, well, of course eat treats!  ;)  (It may drive my husband crazy to have that much estrogen all in our house at the same time…..haha.)  But the closest way I can think of to have you all come over and work on a project together…….is to give away some of my patterns from my little pattern shop.  And then this Saturday at 3:17 p.m., we can all work on the same thing over Skype.  Haha……just kidding.  But we can pretend.


Anyway, the first 30 people (Sorry….the first 30 were already chosen)to leave a comment on this post (with their email address), can choose whatever pattern they want from my pattern shop here

And then I will send you the PDF file right to your email inbox.

If I had a shop full of pre-made items……I’d send some of those too.  But I don’t.  Darn.


But I just wanted to somehow say an extra great big thank you


And I hope those of you who celebrate, had a wonderful Thanksgiving today.
