On this Thanksgiving eve, I am counting all my blessings – my family, my health, my Q-Bees and my stash. I am so thankful for my blog and all the new friends it has brought into my life, Using vocabulary from the quilting world, I decided to put my feelings in a poem and called it the “Thanksgiving Quilt”
Start with one constant, like God,
Add scrappy pieces of family
Throw in some Zinger friends
Press together with harmonious colors
And threads of music, books and art
Find backing that fits
Batting for warmth
Layer together . . .
Knot and tie with strong thread
Or stitch with long arms of love and thankfulness.
