Thankful TNT Thursday!!

So I thought today, being Thanksgiving here in the States and all, that we would change things up just a bit :)  If you have something new you have tried and have blogged about it, please go right ahead and link it up.  But if you would like, you can also add a list of things you are thankful for to your post.   Or, if you just want to right a post about the things you are thankful for that would be great and then go right ahead and link that up as well :)

So, this week I tried something totally new to me.  I was in a bit of a rut and didn't really want to finish up my crib quilt, so I decided to move to another quilt.  I never quilt this way.  I always try to finish what I start before I move on.  (I get worried I won't ever come back to it :)   But I actually found I really enjoyed bouncing around.  I worked on 4 separate projects this week, and even though I didn't get a lot done on one particular project, I found I really liked the variety.  So I think I am going to give bouncing around my WIP a shot for a little while :)

As to my list of things I am grateful for. . . .

I am grateful to be loved by an amazing husband and five wonderful children.
I am grateful to be finished with school and to be living in the home that we want to grow old in.
I am grateful to be a stay at home mom.
I am grateful to be living in a country where freedoms are upheld by the government and by brave men and women.
I am grateful to have been brought up by wonderful parents who taught me the value of right and wrong.
I am grateful to live 2 doors away from the best in-laws anyone could ask for.
I am grateful to have such an amazing creative outlet in quilting that allows me a little time-off each day.
I am grateful to my wonderful readers who leave sweet comments and boost my day.
I am grateful to have made so many wonderful friends through this wonderful online quilting community.

Alright.  I am off to make some pies.  Happy Thanksgiving!!
