Over and over I hear the best way to be happy is to be thankful. Let’s just say I’m very happy this month as we take a specific look at what we are thankful for. Sisters are VERY near the top. Fabric is in the first paragraph. And those two things brought me back to one of our first pattern lines that is still a best seller. The Thank You, God series brings back so many memories.
We were learning to write (and read) each others directions like in the Pilgrim apron pattern, which I still tie on wrong.
We were learning to “blend” our color choices and terms, like in the bread wrap pattern. What did you really mean as reddish-brown? Which green is leaf green? Yellow or Gold?
We were learning to photograph, like on the table runner. How many times did we go to this table and still not have any food there?! Ok, so we are still learning this one, but we are quilters not photographers.
We were learning to use our computers & technology, like posting these table mats to our etsy store.
We were learning how to do two for one sizes, like the casserole carrier, and get both in the same pattern (later this was the concept for our topsy-turvey patterns that have two in one from the Linens and Old Lace collection).
We were learning which ideas to keep, like enlarging the figure for a papoose cuddle quilt, and which ideas to let go, like making a whole pilgrim village!
So, sister, not just this month but all year long. Thanks for the memories that we have and those that we are making during this business process and life in general.
What quilting memories are you thankful for?
