Lots to be thankful for

As we head into the week of Thanksgiving, it's always nice to reflect on the things we are thankful for. The past six years have brought many changes into my life. I am thankful to be back in the North Valley altho I miss the mountains terribly as well as family that have passed, my husband, his parents and my father. I am thankful to live close to my son and that I get to see and talk to my mom every day since I moved her here after dad died. I am thankful that I met a wonderful man who helps make my life happy again. My friends in Tahoe, internet quilting friends and new family and friends in Texas :0)

I am especially thankful to have the opportunity and the means to be a quilter. To to able to share my love of quilting with others thru teaching and the guild. To give the gift of quilts to family, friends and those in need. 

Thank you to Dan, Cathy, Nancy and Jeni at Cathy's Sew and Vac for the classroom to teach quilting. My Quilting 101 series of classes are completed. With 2 returning and 2 new attendees, we had a lot of fun making a two color two block quilt. My new Binding Workshop last week was full and went well. The BOM is ongoing with a fun group of ladies. I am thankful for new quilting friends and to share my love of quilting with you all!

This week I am taking off for... a quilting vacation at home! lol Over the weekend I got caught up on my Civil War and 1880s sampler BOWs prep work and am ready to start sewing! Am I ever Thankful to get back to my quilts and am looking forward to a week of sewing, cooking and eating! Yippee and Yum!
