Thanksgiving for some is tomorrow,

but for me Thanksgiving is everyday. I thank God for my new life in Christ. For giving me the mind and the will to do of His good pleasure. I thank God for life, health, and strength each day. I thank Him for my wonderful husband who thinks I am a queen. I thank God for good relationships with my two sons. I also thank God for putting my home back together better than it was before the water damage with very little out-of- pocket expense. I thank Him for so many things it would take forever for me to tell it all. Here's wishing each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving Day on tomorrow and admonish you all to be thankful each day because if we take a good look at our lives we can find a lot to be thankful for. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God.....

Two steps forward, Three steps backwards

If it ain't one thing it's another.
My new floors are in, but the refrigerator caused damage to my studio floor. We pulled all the flooring and underlayment out and purchased new flooring. When removing the baseboards we discovered mold. Yes, I said mold. I have angioedema and am highly allergic to this substance, but God has been good to me. I have not had a reaction. The mold is in the corner where my tv and sofa was. This was my favorite spot next to the sewing machine area.
Had to call insurance again for the floor and the mold. They do not cover the mold, so I guess you know who has to pay. Yeah, me.
To make a long story short I'm outside my studio looking in, however, they contained the damaged area with a plastic enclosure, so I can still get to the sewing machine and my computer.
I've been drawing out some new designs to day, as if I don't already have more than enough already waiting to be put together.
The quilt I'm posting has been finished with borders but I don't have a picture of it yet, so I'm posting it as a UFO. It has already found a new home and owner. I thought this one was appropriate since it kind of smiles at you.
