First off, my other craft is knitting. I know a lot of quilters are knitters also. I had put knitting on the backburner until the granddaughters came along and then I really went to town churning out sweaters for them the first couple years. I don't think they wear them very much, but, hey, at least I had a good time making them.
I made this big because she grows so fast. When she was smaller I made her a cashmere and wool coat sweater. I wish I had a picture of that one.
I'm thankful for my kids and grandkids, and my house with the sewing room and its big bathroom.
If you think a bathroom is a silly thing to be thankful about, it's because I spent my life having bathrooms that I could barely turn around in. I don't ever go in it without being happy about it, and I've lived here almost 3 years. I also waited a long time for a sewing room to myself.
Of course I'm thankful for hubby who provides all this for us, and keeps helping the adult kids and the grandkids in this bad economy and works and worries more than he should have to at this stage of his life.
I'm thankful we still have good health and I could go on and on, but I don't know that it would make good reading!
Thanks Kelly, for making us reflect about what good things we all have!
