Bits of random thankfulness....

1.  Since Mother's Day is coming up, I am so thankful that my mom instilled in me a love of sewing.  It has given me pleasure for many years.

Also, I am so thankful to have had the privilege of being mom to my two daughters...and Mamaw of Lorelei.

2.  I am thankful to have these two mug-mats finished...I plan to go ahead and give them to my daughter.



3.   I finished these by doing a little free-motion quilting...not exactly proud of them but they will do for potholders.  I didn't know what I would do with them but when Sarah came to get Lorelei this evening, she liked them so they went home with her.


4.  I am thankful to have come across a new show called Victorian Slum House, this is a link to a page of photos from the show.  You can got to PBS.org video page and actually watch an episode.  I don't know how long the video will be available.  The show is a reality show, has people actually living the way they did 150 years ago.  During the show, it shows actual photos from that era, and tells a lot of facts about how things were back then.   


5.  I am thankful to have had the experience of raising a few calves with one of these:
When Roger and I moved to Tennessee we ended up raising two calves, but they did not take to the bucket at all.  Instead we got bottles.

6.
And last, I am thankful I don't have to drive something like this.  Though we have drove worse when we were young.  I actually can't decide if this was a have to/make do repair or some kid doing it for fun.

 I'll be leaving you with a little Jackson Browne



Linking these to Thankful Thursday ...

Thank you Michelle this enjoyable meme.
