I Love Thursday #29

Here it is, time to share the first of our lists of things that bring us joy in a brand new year. A group of us link up on LeeAnna’s blog, Not Afraid of Color.

I like the fact that the creation of several vaccines are bringing the possibility of gaining some control over this horrid disease, but am accepting the fact that our lives will remain restricted for months, probably until next fall. The slowness of getting the vaccines out and the resistance to the recommended protocols will affect the effectiveness of having a vaccine. The main thing is to hang on to the belief that common sense will prevail and we will have learned to listen and think before speaking.

I love getting surprise gifts in the mail. I had a wonderful surprise yesterday (wasn’t it the perfect day to get happy mail?).

My DIL makes these photo scrapbooks of memories every year for my granddaughters. It made me feel a little less sad to have missed this visiting year with them when I saw the photos of fun and adventures.

I love the emails and notes I get from all of my on line friends. It makes these dramatic times easier to bear when you know others are feeling the same as you.

It’s a short post today. My heart and head are just too full with all of the horror, tragedy and insanity in our world right now.

I think fabric therapy is required to lift my spirits after reading my friends posts that link up on LeeAnna’s blog. Positivity can only help. Right? 💕 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Photo books are so wonderful. They take a long time (well at least the ones I’ve made do) to make, but are so worth it. Fabric therapy helps, indeed!

  2. Hi Carol! I just love the idea of the photo books and how fab that your DIL shares them with you. Those will be just priceless as they grow older, and for you to look at whenever you get the urge. I can remember spending lots of time with my nephew looking at his baby book – dat’s me! Your Project Quilting 12.1 certainly turned out cute and it’s a nice leading picture. {{Hugs}} All of this too shall pass. ~smile~ Roseanne
