  5. Like you, I think God, family and friends are what life is all about. But I have to say, my favorite thing ever is a day in my quilt room, sewing away, with my little granddaughter beside my at her table creating something awesome. Add the smell of something yummy cooking in the kitchen (I have to admit, not by me -- my husband does all the cooking) -- priceless!

  6. I agree God, Family and friends are what are most important to me. Besides this I love a warm summer day sitting on my porch at our summer cottage in the woods. Looking at the lake and all the nature around me is inspiring! Oh and chocolate too. I also like to travel to see new things.

Then of course there is the joy of laughter, the feel of fine fabrics, sitting by the hummingbird feeders through the summer months while stitching and watching their antics, and the wonderful companionship and love of my hubby of 43 years. Thanks for your generous giveaways, Hugs...

  21. I am in love with life...each day is precious and filled with gifts from God from morning until night. Some of those gifts are a new beginning each day; opportunities to nurture others and to be nurtured; enjoy each season of life and of the earth. That is what fabric reminds me of...nature, beauty, choice, textures, seasons and as I collect them I feel inspired, lifted, strengthened,LOVED and feel that I can create something beautiful too. Love it!! Deanna Hirz

  44. Handwork has always been my love, but I would have to choose something different to love today that is more basic in life.....HOPE. Without hope all the rest of the lovely things of life don't have any special flavor or joy. On Saturday of preValentine weekend, I received a call from my sister-in-law that my brother was been transferred by helicopter from a local ER to a major neurology center because he had just suffered a massive stroke. This is a healthy, zestful 60 year old who has never been significantly sick. There were no warning signs. The same day he was admitted, the doctor told his wife that he would never communicate verbally, in writing, or comprehend spoken language again....that his entire language center had been wiped out. On hearing this, my entire world felt like it had come to an end.....the end even of hope...worse than a death. When my sister-in-law sat with my brother a bit later, he squeezed her hand. He was asked to stick out his tongue and he managed to get it to his lips. He was told to smile and his best effort was a raised eyebrow. He repositioned himself before going to sleep by using his good arm to move his right paralyzed arm, and fixed the sheet so it was more to his liking. He gave signs that the doctor was speaking too soon and was trying to extinguish hope, maybe to make everyone thankful for whatever recovery might occur. Whatever, it was devastating and we clung to the evidence to the contrary. Today, a different doctor said that, although 1/3 of the left side of his brain had been hit by the stroke, she believes he has signs of good comprehension, attempts to speak, and her prognosis was much more hopeful. The magic word....HOPE....it is what I love more than anything today....my great love of handwork was again ignited today and it was a day of quiet work and contemplation. Hope is essential to all the rest of the good in life and now I have hope to aid in helping him in his rehab and bringing back someone who is so special to me. Thank God for hope.....in all areas of this life.

  45. I, too, love my God and my family,and I love my pastor and his wife. I recently completed Shabby Fabrics' Quilt of Hope and gave it to them for Christmas. It felt so wonderful to give something to them from my heart and hands. The quilt was beautiful and perfect and I got big, big hugs from them. My favorite saying is that there is a pipeline (the Holy Spirit)from my brain to God and to Thomas. His sermons are always just what I need to hear. Our family has been going through a difficult trial the last few months and we started a new bible study entitled, "When Life is Hard." I have learned that we can get through anything with God's love and our faith in Him. I love my salvation and that God gave his only begotten son so that I could be saved. We really serve an Awesome God!!!! Can you tell that my cup runneth over?

    Thank you for your website and all the help you have given me. I love receiving you emails on Monday and Friday mornings.

  46. Well, the obvious, our awesome God, family and friends. My grandbabies (2 and 3) can make me smile like no other. I love hearing them laugh...I mean REALLY laugh like they can't catch their breath laugh. LOL I love to bury my face in their little necks and soak up that sweet baby smell. I wish I could bottle it up and take it home with me until my next visit with them. I do miss them so. I love coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. I love china teacups and the cottage look, which to me is my frou frou side coming out! I love reading blogs and meeting new friends online. Quilters are such wonderful friends! I love the smell and feel of new fabric. Oh my, there is nothing like it! I could waller in it (is that a word? It is in Texas!)! I love looking at fabric and then looking at the finished product. It's like an artist looking at a blank canvas and then seeing the finished painting. Totally so rewarding. I love to share my talents with others. I love your blog and your website (well THAT is a given, too). Oh gosh, there are so many things, but I think I'll stop now. I'm not sure if there is a word limit on here! Thank you for the chance at your most awesome drawing!

  49. First I love Jesus! And then I love a number of family and firends and then these things: I love your web site! You carry some of the most beautiful feminine fatris. I didn't know you had a blog - just found it. I also love the Puget Sound area - God gave us to much beauty and variety that the rest of the earth must surely be jealous. And I love fabric - someday it will all get into quilts. LOL ** Patti kingpa0317@hotmail.com

  51. To repeat what most everyone else has said God, family, friends, our pets, quilting and other crafty projects, chocolate, smell of fresh rain, flowers, birds, fresh baked cookies, the beach, fresh fruit and vegetables, good health, and many more things that are probably too many to mention. Thanks for the great question for it makes one appreciate all of ones many blessings!

  55. I love quilting, sewing, embroidery, cooking, baking and fabrics and patterns!
    I have ordered from you several times in the past and made Hope's quilt last year for my daughter who was geting married. She loves the quilt.
