Thankful Thursday

I am thankful today, and always, for my sister. Saturday is her 60th Birthday. That seems amazing to me. How on earth did we get here?

My sister has always been my best friend and I am very lucky to have her. I hope you have someone special in your life too

Because I feel so thankful I am giving away a spool of my favorite thread to some lucky quilter. You have through Saturday to leave a comment, then I will go to random numbers dot com and pick a lucky winner.

Tomorrow is my second installment video on machine quilting. In that installment I will be using cotton thread, BUT my favorite thread to work with is a #30 weight rayon thread from Madeira. Some lucky winner will receive a  spool of this fabulous thread.

Thank you for stopping by.

I think we learn to enjoy sisters more than when we were younger. I love Madera thread.

I know what you mean when you say when did this happen to us? I will be 60 on my next birthday, I don't think I'm old however when I read an obit of someone 60, I think "old". I have two sisters and we are close also.

Yes, sisters get better with age! Would love a chance at the thread.

If you ever figure out how we got here, could you please map it so that we could get back to those other numbers if we feel like it? lol Please wish your sister a Happy Birthday for me!

Thank you for the opportunity to win a spool of the wonderful Madeira thread. I love it!

Happy Birthday Sis! I am glad to hear that she is your best friend. I would love to win this thread. I have not used it and would love to try it. Take care and God bless, Cory

Happy 60th to your sister - I always wanted one but it was not to be.

Happy birthday, Frieda's sister!
Don't know if it's the one you're giving away, but that's a great thread color! Looking forward to the next video.
