Happy Thankgivukah!

Amazing isn't it that two celebrations of thankful takes place on the same day! Thanksgiving for those of us in America and the first day of Hanukkah worldwide.
The things I'm blessed with and thankful for are:
   * The love of my Heavenly Father and King
   * The Torah and Brit Chadeshah
   * The breath of life
   * My very dear husband and friend
   * My children, grandchildren and great grandchildren
   * Precious friends
   * The gift of creativity
   * The roof over my head
   * Hot water (sounds strange but we finally have a hot water heater that works!)
   * The future

Blessings dear ones. Have a wonderful day.

Lots of Quilt Blocks

One of the projects the quilt guild I belong to is doing this year is a friendship or signature block quilt. Or should I say we're just doing the blocks and each member individually will decide how she wants to finish the quilt.

We are a small guild of maybe 17 ladies. Not all of our members are able to join in but, for those that are, it's a wonderful idea. For each meeting one of the members is featured and picks a block pattern that she feels represents her.

These are the blocks presented that I have finished so far.
Elaine's School House Block.

Mary's Indian Trails Block

Ceil's Sunflower Block

Sharon's Pieced Tulips Block

Shirley's Cross Within A Cross Block

Roxanne's Rolling Stone Block

The Friendship Block with a photo of our guild members for the center of the block.

Carolyn B's May Basket Block

Karen's Covered Bridge Block
I'm not sure how many more block patterns will be given to us but certainly this is a good start to a quilt full of memories.

New Class Offering

Dion Dior has new online classes starting in January 2014. You can choose her Sparkle-arkle class, or Wisdom Circles or both. She is also giving away chances to win these classes for free. Click on over to her blog and take a look. You won't regret it. I've been following her blog for a while and just love her art.

Yes, I'm Still Here.

If I still had a FaceBook account I would rant a little about life but I don't so I won't. Instead I'll share my latest nature journal page.
I was a little(?) slow getting this page finished. The goldfinches are gone from the area, the flowers have disappeared and everything is brown. However, the bluejays, woodpeckers and nuthatches have found the bird feeder and this season's 'birdy show' has begun. A pleasure to watch.
