Late last year, I agreed to enter into a private mini swap with Renee @Quilts of a Feather. OK, to be honest, Renee asked if I would do a private mini swap with her and I freaked out: she makes such amazingly detailed swap items and I told her I felt like there was no way I could make anything nice enough in return. But then I made Life: Ups and Downs and just shipped it off randomly to her, and she considered that I had agreed to take part in the swap. This week I got the most amazing mini quilt from Renee in the mail. She named the mini “She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” and I highly encourage you to click on the quilt name link and visit Renee’s site to get more details on the quilt. Today, I am just so grateful that I have this beautiful quilt to look at every day! 🙂
Also, this is my 400th blog post. Wow, I am so thankful for you for following along on this adventure with me!
Finally, in closing, I just want to chat a bit about this link up. I have really been enjoying writing a gratitude post once a week, but I can totally understand it is not something you would write a dedicated post to link up for every Thursday. However, if during the course of writing a post for a week you find that you are thankful or grateful for something (your husband for giving you some time alone in the sewing room, your seam ripper for being so darn handy, a bit of happy mail you received from a swap partner, or a giveaway that you won), be sure to mention it in your post and link up!
What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up (link up open for 48 hours on Thursday and Friday US Pacific time):
- 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?).
- 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 http://www.instagram.com/quiltingjetgirl). Please hashtag #QuiltyThankfulThursday.
- If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
- 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!
