So I have been asked to talk a bit about what I am thankful for. Well this could be long, because there are so many things that I am thankful for. Let me start with the usually stuff even they are extremely important to me. I will also add some pictures of things but I have a policy not to post pictures of my family on my blog so I will have to get a bit creative. First I am so thankful for my Husband, we have been married for over 20 years and it been great fun most of the time. He even understand about the yarn collecting. Then there are my three daughters. Ages 16,13 and 9. They are all very wonderful caring girls which is rare sometimes for teens this day and age. My 16 year old plays in the marching band at school. They took 1st place in a local marching band competition this year.

I am so thankful for my job. I have so much fun teaching others to knit and to improve their skills in knitting.

I am also thankful for the Internet. Because of the web I have met some really nice ladies that share my same interests and obsession with fiber.

I am so thankful for God providing my spinning wheel for me. As you all may know Matchless spinning wheels are not cheap but I was able to get mine at a price I could afford.

I am also thankful that this past year I was able to attend a couple of fiber shows. Its so fun to see what other fiber artist are up to and of course its always nice to add to the stash.
I am also thankful for the different class that I have taken in the past year or so. Its so fun to be able to learn something new.

I am thankful for my different groups that I am a member of from The Treasure valley knitting guild the spinning group and the Idaho Civil War renactors. I love to spend time with other people with the same interest that I have.

OK so this is a bit of a crazy one. I am thankful for baseball. I am a huge fan of base ball. I know when friends of mine find this out they are just surprised as all get out. But I really love to sit and watch a great base ball game.
As you can see I am thankful for a wide range of things. Life has been tough for us this year but as I look back there are some many things to be thankful for. My home, my family , my friends,but when I think of being thankful the first thing that come to my mind is God. With out him I would have nothing and be nothing. He has blessed me in millions of ways so many that I don't have space to list them all. He has given me the talent to knit and the talent to share my skills with others. He has given me the heart to love others in maybe a way that some don't. God bless you and take a minute today to thank God for all you are bless with in your life.
