Thankful Friday and a Winner

Thank goodness it’s Friday! At the end of the week, it’s nice to stop and take a moment to share the things I’m thankful for from the past week. I find it’s a great way to appreciate the big things and the small things.

(my driveway, currently under construction… and unusable)

1. I am thankful I got to spend last weekend at a retreat with my sewing friends. We had such a blast! I am also thankful to have such a great group of friends with whom I feel comfortable being myself.

2. I am thankful for all the wonderful “happies” I received last weekend from the above-mentioned sewing friends.

3. I am thankful for a peaceful, quiet week to get caught up.

4. I am thankful for the sales I had in my Etsy shop and pattern shops this week.

5. I am thankful for the long piece of pom-pom fringe I found in my stash so I could finish a big pillow cover.

6. I am thankful I didn’t have to be anywhere this week because my driveway is under construction and unusable (see above).

7. I am thankful for shade in the mornings so I can spend a little time outside before it gets scorching hot.

8. I am thankful for the few skirts I have in my closet. They are great to wear during this scorching hot weather.

9. I am thankful for the little bit of mint chocolate cookie ice cream left in our freezer.

10. I am thankful for the new crafty magazines I recently picked up (Cloth, Mollie Makes, and Stitch Craft Create). I needed a fresh shot of inspiration.

The randomly chosen winner of my stationery giveaway is Vicki. Congrats, Vicki! Let me know what letter you would like on your monogram notepad. Your goodies will be in the mail asap. Hope you like them!

Remember, if you didn’t win, you can still print your own grocery list and recipe cards by clicking on the DIY page at the top of my blog for the free downloads. Stay tuned for more DIY stationery goodies.

Hope you have a few things to be thankful for this week.

  • I am thankful for retreating and happies, too. Also, I drove to NY today and tomorrow to NH. I’m thankful to own a car that works so well and that I trust completely for such a long trip. I’m thankful for a safe drive with E. My parents turn 70 this week. I’m thankful for them! And the rest of my family!

    Wonderful thankful Friday post – hope your driveway is well on the way to completion. Great happies from your sewing friends – I much prefer the term ‘happies’ to ‘RAK’. Love that keep calm fabric! Congratulations to Vicki and you on your sale. Have a fabulous weekend and save some mint choc chip for me 🙂

  • I love your Thankful Friday posts! It is so nice to remember all things, big and small, to be thankful for. Like you, I am very thankful to have the opportunity to retreat with a great group of friends. You all inspire me!!
