It's the little things that I am most thankful for. Like the sun on my face, the sound of the wind through the trees, a caring husband, a sleeping cat, a snuggle with a bunny, a cup of hot tea, time spent stitching and a long conversation with a dear friend. It doesn't take much to make me smile. I take great pleasure in the simple, the heartfelt and the handmade.

I'm also very thankful for my customers/friends. It makes me smile so very big when someone enjoys making one of my designs. This is my Folk Art Fusion flower brooch which was made by friend, Barbara Brannon.

It was her first try with my method and I think she did a wonderful job. She made it into an ornament to give as a gift to a friend.   

Today I also wanted to share this beautiful animation performance. I hope you can take a moment to sit and enjoy it as much as I did. Art comes in so many wonderful forms.

I am thankful for you my friend.

Light, love and hugs,

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving as you do, but everyone should take the time to thank God for everything in their lives that they are thankful for! Happy Thanksgiving xxxx

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in England but I have a lot to be thankful for including lovely children and a husband that never complains about how much fabric I buy. x

You have reminded me of something essential to my well-being that I seemed to have lost in the shuffle of daily, fast-paced life. To not only engage in the little things, but to accept the fact that these little things DO MATTER in our well-being. Dear heart, thank you.
