I have many reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving.  Family, friends, new job, blog, new blogging friends…the list could go on forever.  I have had so much fun with my blog that I should have joined Blogland a l-o-n-g time ago!  I’ve “met” such wonderful people.  I can’t tell you how wonderful the comments and emails I have received have made me feel.  I always tell my girls “to the Moon and back” when I want to explain when something means a lot.  Like when I tell them “I missed them to the Moon and back” when they’ve gone to Grandma’s house for the weekend, so they understand the magnitude of how much I missed them.  Your comments and emails have meant so much to me…to the Moon and back!!!  So as my thank you to all of you, I am doing my very first GIVEAWAY! 
 I am giving away “Paganini” Schnibbles pattern from Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. because that was the first project in Le Petite.  Joining Le Petite was the one last “push” I needed to get my blog up and running.  AND I am including 2 Charm Squares of  Wild Rose by Blackbird Designs to make Paganini!  I, of course chose this fabric because it represents my first day at the quilt shop!  All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment about what YOU are thankful for this Thanksgiving on this post by 9:00 PM Tuesday Nov. 23.  I will post the winner the Wednesday (Nov. 24) before Thanksgiving at 9:00 AM. 
Good Luck! 
Giveaway Now Closed!  Have A Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm also thankful to the rest of my family for their unconditional love no matter how crazy I get.

  • Becky says:

    Love your saying, "To the moon and back." Blessings. This has definitely been a year of blessings. It is almost impossible to choose one thing that I'm thankful for, but I'd have to say that I'm blessed, grateful, thankful for my dear husband. I am thankful that this good man is in my life. I am indeed blessed.

    So glad that you have joined the blogging world!

    HI Linda, thanks for your nice comment on my blog. Like you, I am really thankful for my blogging friends (aside from all the normal stuff like family, health, good job, good friends). I have found inspiration, friendship, and just plain fun in blogland. I have been blogging for under a year, and I should have started a long time ago. Thanks for the nice giveaway!

I will follow yours!
    XOXOXO Subee

    First of all I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a very nice comment! I have met such wonderful quilters through my blog and am so thankful for it. I am also thankful for my family, my health, and for my strong faith in the Lord. Hope everyone that reads this has a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

  • Jo says:

    I'll be really thankful if my kids, the boyfriends and the girlfriends, my hubby and dogs can all get along for the day. Then I'll be real thankful to have Friday as a sewing day. Seriously….I am thankful that I am forgiven. I am thankful that my family loves me unconditionally. I am thankful to have all the things I need to survive and many things that help me thrive.

  • Pati says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I can drool, because I never win! I am thankful for my children and my grandson. My youngest son almost died at Christmas last year from a botched surgery. In fact, he only had a 10% chance of living. I'm happy to say that he did make it through and is stronger than ever. And with a great attitude about his surgery/experience. My first grandchild/grandson was born on Spencer's birthday of January 11th. My daughters have both matured into wonderful young ladies and my oldest son has become the man that I always knew he would be. Without my children, I would not be the person that I am today.

  • Mary @ Neat and Tidy says:

    What a generous giveaway!

    Let's see, I am so grateful for so many things, that it's difficult to single out one. I guess I'd have to say that I'm most grateful for my good health. So many of my friends are younger and have to rely on medications.

    Linda, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Anonymous says:

    I'm thankful each day my eyes open and head lifts from the pillow…simple….I live another day to love, enjoy and just be.

    I want Wild Rose! Oh goodness…I've been slapping my hands at the keyboard for ordering this line.

  • Yvette says:

    What a thoughtful giveaway. I am thankful that my 85 year old mom is healthy and able to walk on her own again.

  • Julie S says:

    I am thankful for everything, everyday, even the bad things because I can learn from them. I'm thankful for little things like my toes that help me walk and balance, my eyebrows that keep rain out of my eyes, and all those other things we rarely think about.

  • Sinta Renee says:

    Congratulations on your blog and your giveaway! You must be in heaven with your new job too! I have a hundred and one things that I am thankful for. Mostly I feel blessed with my wonderful family and my friends. I am fortunate to have so much love around me… and that is what makes each day special to me.

  • Candace says:

    Fun giveaway, Linda! I am most thankful for my good health, for finding Mr. Squash late in life and who lights up my life to no end, and for all the great new and old friends I've made in blogland!

  • Deb says:

    I'm thankful for the opportunity to spend time with family and friends over the holiday weekend, and the fact that we have our first granddaughter to spend time with this year. It's amazing!

  • Quilter Kathy says:

    What a lovely gift! I am thankful for family and friends also. But lately I have been thankful for good health that enables me to enjoy my friends and family and quilting. I have a much younger cousin who is very ill and it really gives me a different perspective on my days.

  • Millie says:
