gratitude

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

Really, I am thankful for so many wonderful things. Obviously, the obvious. Health, family, home, safety, friends. A few others, I wanted to share.
Clasic Elite's yarn, charmed (oh, does it feel good in my hands) :: the (new to me)new site for cookies to help me with our cookie of the week (it turned out more like cake, but was delicious) :: the movie sweet november (one of my favorite movies, keep the tissues near.)

Our thankful tree, filled with old thanks. ( I save the leaves every year. We have five years of leaves.)
Making leaves of new thanks.
Thank you for all your blogs, and the inspiration you give to me. And, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy lives to stop by my little space. It really means a lot.
Have a wonderful thanksgiving.

  19. What an amazing idea. I think we might be making that a tradition. We have not had a chance to start our own in the almost 4 years we have been together because we were always with his family trying to get in as much time as possible with his mother before her cancer took her.

  26. Hi Leslie, it's the frist time I write you, but I have been reading your blog for some time and I like it a lot. It's full of inspiration and peace. I am Italian, I live in Milan and I am also a knitter since I was a child (but I am by no means as productive as you!). I recently started a blog: www.paroledilana.blogspot.com
    "parole di lana" is the Italian for "woolen words". No Thanksgiving here today, but I wish you and all Americans a great holiday!

  44. Hi, I just discovered you through the Yarnhog, and I have really enjoyed reading all your old posts. You are sooo creative, wish you lived next door. We started our tree this thanksgiving. I always do some dorky activity that my teens roll their eyes at, but I make them do it. I love the tree because it is pretty to look at. We tied the leaves on with lovely yarn scraps. I look forward to reading you regularly.

  50. This is such a lovely idea, I felt quite emotional as I read about it. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here but I am thinking of adopting a version of it, it's good to give thanks.
