Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day when many people stop and take the time to reflect on the things they are thankful for. For me, it's always been my family and friends. I want to share a picture with you that speaks to what I'm thankful for.
These family treasures made it back home due to the kindness of two of my quilting friends. Laura Estes, of Laura's Sage Country Quilts, picked up my Grandpa Con's metal lunch pail filled with sewing notions at my grandparent's estate sale many years ago. She gave it to me after church a couple of weeks ago to give to my son. My Grandma Hattie's sewing patterns were a birthday gift from Charlene Kagele a few years ago. Thank you both for your thoughtfulness.
Grandma would make my brother shirts without interfacing in the collar because he didn't like anything "scratchy" touching his neck! I'm thinking I may have to take a break from sewing quilts to make my sweet, granddaughter Hattie a dress using one of her Great-Great Grandma Hattie's patterns. Imagine, the patterns originally sold for 25 cents and 50 cents!!
This Thanksgiving day, along with my family and friends, I will also add all of my new Milk Bottle quilting friends to the list of things I'm thankful for.
