Happy Thanksgiving!

What a beautiful thanksgiving morning it is here. I know that you will all be taking a moment to think of the things that you are thankful for this year. I am thankful today because I will get to spend some time with my sewing machine. While it is not what some would wish for on this day, I know that it will make me extremely happy. And that is what I wish for all of my friends… one thing today that will make them extremely happy.

Today’s journal quilt is the one I did for the month of May. The first weekend in May is Derby Day. So here is Barbaro as I imagined him in the winner’s circle. Of course there had to be a woman in a hat. I am not quite sure which is more important on Derby Day… the horses or the hats.

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
