When it comes to the stitching part of your life, what are you most thankful for?
I found this a most intriguing question. I guess I just never thought of my stitching as something to be thankful for. Oh, I loved it and it's probably the number one hobby in my life (and believe me, I've tried a lot of them LOL). But being thankful for it? That just never occurred to me. Then I began to think about what stitching means to me. It's a great stress reliever, except when I'm frogging something that's on 25 count over one. It fulfills my desire to be an artist. I've always wanted to be a painter but don't have a lick of talent in my entire body. So putting colors on fabric with thread is one way I can fulfill that wish. But I guess the most important thing I've gotten from my stitching and that I'm most thankful for is that it keeps me from eating, snacking noshing, whatever you want to call it. See, I need to lose about 40 pounds. Well, to be honest I actually would love to lose even more than that, but I'm going to be realistic here. When I stitch, I don't eat. It's as simple as that. Who wants grease stains on their stitching? Not me. So the potato chips have to stay away. As I get older, it's getting harder and harder to lose the weight. So maybe I should just stitch more and leave the snacking for someone else. So this Thanksgiving, I'm going to be thankful for my stitching and see if helps me resist that extra slice of pie!
