Grateful Friday (of sewing, family and friendships online and off))

Feeling thankful today for:

Melissa and her beautiful daughter Annabelle who thought to send my girl some fabulous dolls that Miss A had sort of outgrown just because they thought Ellie would like them. I don't care if I've never actually met her. That's a friend, indeed.


My mom who is both encouraging and practical. Missed you this week Mama, glad you are feeling better.

Dana for her encouragement and advice about quilting and for her friendship. Virginia Beach 2012 (or so) here we come! ;-)

Quilt top #2 is DONE and DONE. I like it even better than the first one.


Scraps and a girl with an imagination.


The prospect of piecing quilt #3 and a fabulous best friend (sister really) with a little girl to give it to.

This little chunk-a-monk and the fact that (at least for now) his daddy doesn't have to worry about his job and I don't have to worry about them moving away.


For all the other gals that comment here and banter back and forth with me. You guys are awesome. Stick around, wouldja?

I love how Ellie is using the pizza cutter tool to cut her fabric. Very inventive!

Apparently the tenuousness of their jobs (perceived or actual) is another thing your brother has in common with his uncle. And my father had the nerve to tell me that I should become an engineer because of job stability....
