Please forgive the crooked picture....I still have to maintain some secrecy until the final unveiling...hopefully sometime this week.
I reconnected with my good friend, Jan, last month when she was in town for a visit. We met about 18 years ago at a meeting of the National Sewing Guild. Eventually a small group of us began to meet on our own each month. We have had so many good times. Sadly, Jan and her family moved to Las Vegas a year or two ago and she is so missed! Warm, funny, and a very talented seamstress, Jan was the glue that held us all together. Another friend from the group has mentioned a possible Christmas get together, though, so there's still hope for us yet. Be sure to check out Jan's new blog....she is just getting started.
Before I end this post, I want to continue my thanksgivings. They are...
...good friends to share laughs and sewing with
...my thimble...how I love my thimble
...my first-floor laundry, which makes me happy every day
...my strong husband, who is there for me always
...snow, snow, snow to remind me that seasons change
...songs that remind me that God never changes
This morning we sang "Amazing Grace" at church. This verse is a favorite, and one I will leave you with. When I read and sing these words, my worries seem to melt away.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
His grace has brought me safe thus far,
His grace will lead me home.
