Many of us are celebrating Thanksgiving today, and by the end of the day we’ll likely be in a turkey/pumpkin pie stupor. ๐Ÿ™‚ Before our delicious dinner, I want to take a few minutes to give thanks.

In many ways this has been a quiet year for my family. Everyone has been safe, we’ve lost no family members, and gained a sweet little one. A nephew has married the love of his life and our family has grown. For this I am thankful.

Quilting is a huge part of my life, and this past year my business has grown. I’m longarming for more people, pattern sales are good, I’ve added classes to my teaching schedule, and I’m helping out at my local quilt shop. For this I am thankful.

Social media can sometimes drive me crazy, but it allows me to maintain a close relationship with my sister Wissa (a nickname she’s not crazy about), and stay in touch with family/friends. For this I am thankful.

Speaking of social media, this blog has allowed me to make many new quilty friends. Some I have had the joy of meeting in person, others I have an email relationship with, and I communicate with others through comments on the blog. I love being part of your quilting world, and am so happy you are part of mine. For this I am thankful.

There are so many other things on my gratitude list – too many to list here, and some too private. I am so blessed, and I am so thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
