Thankful Thursday - 1/27/2022

A friend just this morning sent me a text message saying, 

"Do you need a miracle today?  
Look in the mirror and you will see one! 💗"

I am ever grateful for the friends in my life... both near and far, as well as known personally or via social media and the miracle of the internet, those that are close confidants as well as acquaintances.

While I have evolved over the years from being a people pleaser, I do still often seek the opinions of others.  Especially when it comes to quilt design and pattern writing.

I am in the early stages of the pattern writing phase of the Pieces in the Garden sew along and thanks to the suggestion of several readers, I am trying one more modification to the first block, making it just a little less challenging intimidating and having fewer than 32 pieces in a 4-in block.  

I'll be honest... the thought of making 12 of the blocks with THAT many pieces deters me from the task!  I thankful for the quilters/designers that developed the steps of making 4 flying geese at a time.  This will be a time saver as well!

The time spent designing the blocks and writing the patterns can be difficult, but with another winter storm getting ready to blow in I am ready to hunker down and focus on the task at hand. The first release day is just around the corner!

I am thankful for the roof and walls that protect us from the wind and the furnace that is operating properly to keep us warm!

What are you thankful for?

Leave a comment... I'd love to hear from you!

Keep piecing!
