Design Wall Monday - November 23, 2020

Here is a start to a small quilt I am in the middle of:

I think the blocks will finish at 6” by 6” when I trim them up.  They are a match to a full sized quilt that is my UFO project for this week.

It is Thanksgiving this Thursday here in the United States.  And I’m so thankful for all of you.  From an online sermon Sunday.....give thanks in ALL circumstances because God is on His Throne.  

I found this list of 10 things I’m thankful for, by Henrik Edberg, in Sweden.  I so agree, and am sharing them here. ;The underlined words are Henrik’s and my thoughts follow without underlining.

1) A roof over my head and a warm house  When the rain and wind hit the roof and I am warm and snug inside, wrapped up in a quilt, there is nothing better.

2) Plenty of drinkable water  Such a blessing that many people don’t have yet.

3) I don’t have to go hungry  Quite the opposite around here - I have too much to eat.

4) I can enjoy the small and free pleasures in life.   a sunset, the sound of the crunch of thick leaveps as I walk, Penny Lane sleeping on my lap.

5) Access to the internet .  Remember encyclopedias?  Or going to the library to research something?  Whatever I want to learn, I learn from the internet.  Thankful for youtube quilt tutorials.

6) My friends and family. For the love, support, and fun that we have together.  The joy my grandchildren bring to me.

7) My health  All the things my body does every day that I take for granted....see, taste, listen, talk, walk, thankful.  With Covid19 all over the world, I am thankful for vaccines coming soon.

8) The kindness of people I have never met before  You all are such a blessing to me.  Through the wonder of the internet, we meet each Monday for Design Wall Mondays and I get to read about and see your beautiful work.  Thank you for reading my blog and sharing your life with me.

9) The setbacks that have formed me and made me stronger  We all have setbacks, and sometimes we can’t see their usefulness until they are gone.  In quilting, every quilt is a progressive lesson for me, and that makes it so exciting.

10)  I am alive.  2020 has been quite the year hasn’t it?  But through it all, I see a list of 10 things to be thankful for!  Happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for this Monday?  Please link up and show us your projects.  As usual, I ask that you provide a link back to my blog from within your post.
