Thankful Thursday #1

Linky Party, Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

One of the things that I really want to focus on in 2015 is expressing gratitude and thanks more frequently (Resolution #2 in my 15 Quilty Resolutions for 2015). To help cultivate  gratitude and thanksgiving for all the big and small things we appreciate through our craft each week, I am establishing a new linky party that I will host every Thursday called Thankful Thursday.

This week I am so thankful to reflect back on the quilts I have made and the love they have given and received. It makes my heart so happy to see my quilts being used, snuggled, and loved.

What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up:

  1. Link up any blog post the past week that discusses something that you are thankful for, no matter how big or small (Did you win a giveaway? Did your seam ripper save the day? Did a friend do something simple and kind that made your day?).
  2. To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is Please hashtag #ThankfulThursday.
  3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
  4. Comment on at least a few of the other Thankful Thursday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!


  • I can’t tell you how this post resonates with me. Being chronically ill or going through life’s troubles changes a person. The smallest things you are grateful for, things others take for granted. I have become thankful for the few days when I actually can just be up and around. Super thankful when I’m able to sew. Even more thankful for my family, friends and some wonderful people in the quilting community that have reached out to me and become my crutches lately. We all have so much to be thankful for, sadly it takes people longer than others to figure this out. I have an upcoming post that will fit perfectly on your link up. I’m just still waiting on pins n needles (no pun intended lol) for some test results…sorry to babble on, being thankful is just incredibly important to me! 🙂

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
