A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Christmas week…Thimbles…what a wonderful way to begin. I have some great quilt photos to show but Christmas time makes me think about this..

Thimbles gather and there is frequently tons of food but more importantly there are friends gathered about snacking and talking about quilts and family and holiday plans. I hear it all the the chatter and I know for sure we are so blessed to have each other in our lives. sooo blessed!

Watching Karmen play with her new toy…Santa came a little early! Her joy over that camera was delightful. I’m so happy for her! I’m hoping she has that Sandra Bulloch lens on that thing if she points it at me.

Leiann and Mary Helen. FINISHED the 6 table runners and napkins for their co workers..They were so proud. I’m going to apply for a job in their department next year! Get on their Christmas list so to speak.

Our precious Cindi arrives with blinking antlers. I about had a heart attack. I love those antlers but I love the person wearing them even more.  
This one says it all. Can you hear the screaming laughter? Can you see their faces? BJ sewing and laughing. Look on the left side, Leisa laughed so hard she fogged up her glasses.  Teresa who stole and hid Julies quilt blocks from her! Crap piled up all over the tables…nobody cares…fun, pure fun…and love in the room so strong, so real you can reach out and touch it. 
      Dear Lord thank you for the gift of all these women.

Christmas time with the Silver Thimble Quilt Club…the most
”  Wonderful Time of the Year”

Tomorrow..the quilts!
