Clutch from Vera
Linky Party, Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday #4

I have so much to be thankful for this week!

Vera @Negligent Style surprised me with the gift of one of the leather circle pouches she made. It was such a delight to get an unexpected package in the mail and to find this beautifully made clutch inside. (For the record, my husband is also quite impressed with the craftmanship! 🙂 ) I really love the black and white polka dot fabric, and I can’t wait to use this on my next evening out. The touch of orange lining is so fun, and the handwritten note and four-leaf clover are just the perfect touch. Thank you so much, Vera!

I also want to thank Michelle @Factotum of Arts for a wonderful gift certificate to Hawthorne Threads. She gives back to the community that supports her blog, and I really appreciate how thoughtful and insightful she is. Don’t miss out on her giveaway opportunity to win a $30 gift certificate of your own!

And the lovely bundle Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs curated for Alyssa @ Pile O’Fabric arrived in the mail yesterday! Time to write up the Racetrack pattern and test it out with the fat quarter bundle.

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!

Thankful Thursday
