I'm filled up with it....gratitude that is.  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I had five days off work, I spent time with family at my cousins house in Oklahoma, I sewed a LOT, I relaxed.  Ahh......what an amazing life I have.  I am a very lucky woman with many blessings.  I have a husband who loves me dearly, a home I love, family close by, loads of wonderful friends and time to sew.  What more could a girl ask for?

On Thanksgiving Day, I got to see my 94 year old grandmother and her younger sister.  They are such fun women and a joy to be around.  Their mother lived to be 103.  I come from a family of women that live long, healthy lives.  My great grandmother died in her sleep at 103 and was still incredibly alert.
My son drove down for the day and it was good to see him and spend time with him.
And, on top of all of these blessings, I won a giveaway from Daisy Janie.  I won Giveaway #5!  I won these two eight foot panels.  What shall I make with these?  The fabric has a wonderful hand to it.  It is from her Geo Grand line and I won the Ogee and Caravan panels.  The colors are fabulous!
What a box of loveliness!  It was a happy mail day on Saturday.

Thanks to all of you who show up here to read my blog and leave your much appreciated comments.  It's been almost a year since I started blogging and I am continually amazed at the worlds it has opened up in my life.


  1. I am thankful for you, Michelle and for your blog! I check in on it often but am all too slack in leaving a comment to let you know! You are truly a blogger extraordinaire - I so enjoy reading it and it helps make the 1000+ miles between us feel a bit smaller.



  2. Like Tricia I read your blog all the time but don't leave a message often enough to let you know I love your blog -- so inspiring! Love the photo of your grandmother and her sister, absolutely love it! The photo of you and Dylan made me smile, you have such "mom" body language there. I guess no matter how old they get there always your babies! He looks good!! Thanks for sharing about your holiday.

  3. Thanks Susan & Tricia for all of the complements! I just love the feeling of community that blogging give us!
