Attitude of Gratitude

Why not? 
If you are celebrating Thanksgiving at the beach 
why not do it with Chocolate?
This year is sure to be the not so traditional 
Thanksgiving Celebration. 
 However if you are with your family what 
else do you need?

After all the season for gratitude doesn't come 
delivered in a Turkey.
It comes from the blessings you remember to be grateful for the and memories you create during the holiday.
We love the beach and we love our family. 
There have been many struggles and trials and we are particularly grateful this season for the chance to be together soon.
Despite set backs and mistakes in the past we are looking to the future and the hope for change.
We never give up and continue to hold each others hand. 
 The good thing about hotel rooms and Thanksgiving there will be no one having to cook and clean.  We will enjoy the efforts of others this year.  We can all relax and enjoy and we plan to.
 As the sunsets and the Holiday Season begins there is so 
much abundance that  surrounds us. 
Family, Friends, Hope, Laughter, Food, Seasons, Holidays, Love, Sunshine, Peace, Joy, Kindness, Grandchildren, Chocolate, Quilts, Sharing and Faith.  And the list goes on and on...
Write your list and have an attitude of Gratitude.  
We wish you and your loved ones the most joyful, plentiful and happy Thanksgiving and pray for love and friendship for all!
give thanks and rejoice life is good!

Share in our comments what you are 
grateful for this Holiday Season 
and you will be entered to win a 
complete kit of
I  love to have you share with me it gives me inspiration.

Mix of Blessings

Happy Thanksgiving

With the season of gratitude here is a 
fun idea for your Thanksgiving Dinner
Use quilts as toppers and on the back of the couch. I love to place quilts on my tables or cabinets and make displays they add so much color to the room.

 A Mixed Blessings
is our favorite favor for the table.
Its filled with sweet and salty and a 
great treat for after dinner snacking.
 I fill a large bowl with all the mixture and 
then fill clear bags with the treats.  
Tie up with a bow and I make a copy of the poem below and tie on each bag to remind everyone about the
 Celebration of the Harvest.

Bubble Gum Bubble Gum in a dish,
How many stitches do you wish?

 On your Birthday you're not suppose to need stitches.
Peanut(Paizlee) fell on her bike and had 5 Stitches 
I guess because she was turning 5 seemed right?
Of course her cousin Hannah had to wrap her chin.
She couldn't find a bandaid and so she decided to 
figure out the next best thing. 
Extra gauze and tape can do wonders.
It really looked bigger and better than was necessary.

 It's so fun to be queen for the day with a crown and all.
Birthday parties are so much fun especially when you are 5.

If you love to have parties and fun times the 
party banner is simple and fun to add to your party decorations.  Celebrate can be used for all party occasions. 
 Hang at the front door, the lights or cabinets 
when my grandkids see this hanging they know its time to
P A R T Y!

Minky and Men


My dad is one of the amazing men in my life.
Not only is he a great example he is my hero. 
He has taught me to have courage and hope and always encourages   to achieve my goals and pursue my dreams.  It is always fun to watch him as he works in the School District, takes care of Winston ( the dog), service work at church, and recently cooking well Granola at least.
This is a great idea for holiday gift giving fill bags or tins and deliver with a smile.  It's delicious and fun to make!

(at home cooking)

My Man
Daryl Brooks also know as DB
is my true love and eternal partner.
He gives me unconditional love everyday.
His example of work ethnic amazes me and keeps me running to catch up.  Recently he became known as the Minky Man.
He is a professional at sharing the demo on 
Minky Strip Quilts
If any of you have witnessed his demo you will agree!
His mission statement about Minky Strip Quilts is…

 If he can do it you can do it. 
If you haven't tried one it's time!

All  men love a Minky to snuggle up with.
Holiday time means Snuggle time.
My handsome grandsons Mason, Haigen and Carson
are quite the men.

Linda Lum DeBono
This pillow is a fun way to brighten up the room! 

When I am looking to design a new quilt or project I consider a few things when choosing my fabric combinations.   
Where is it going? 
What is the purpose?  
Is it for a special occasion or person?
After I consider these questions I begin with a focus print.  And then determine if it is going to be scrappy or not.  
In my early years of quilting the most fun for me was choosing fabrics and making combinations work.  I learned early by  adding a splash of a little out of the ordinary print or color always gives character and someone once told me every quilt needs a little gold. 
There are more tips for selecting fabric in the book.  

Peppermint Twist Christmas Pillow
designed by 
Dana Brooks

pattern reusable over and over.

My Lazy Daisy 
We are always having fun creating new ideas, 
projects and color combinations.  

Their are so many things to love about quilting.  The friends we meet, the fabrics we fall in love with, the sense of accomplishment when we complete a project, the idea that we all are crazy… cutting up perfectly good fabric and then spending hours, days, weeks, months or even years sewing it all back together again.  And then the stash...
Adding a variety to our stash through the talents of many designers brings a smile to everyone. 

There is so much joy and fun to be shared
