Wishing You a Peaceful Holiday Season

Holiday signIt is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, worrying about buying the right gifts, baking cookies, decorating a home.  With so many distractions, we sometimes forget to pause and take stock. I’m reminded of the words of Dr. Suess in his famous tale of How the Grinch Stole Christmas:

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

I hope we all take a moment to take stock and that our thoughts are full of all the blessings we have—our families, friends, homes and communities.

And for me, that includes you, too.  I’ve enjoyed meeting many of you in classes and in the Studio, reading your emails and comments on Facebook and my blog and, of course, sharing my love of quilting.  Even though we may live countries apart and we may never meet, we are all part of this wonderful quilting community.

Yes, I think quilters especially understand this message from the Grinch.  The gift of a quilt is a labor of love whether for a friend, family member or even a stranger.  The world can be a scary place these days.  I am so grateful to be associated with generous men and women who give others tangible signs that they care, that the recipient is special.  Maybe the world just needs a few more quilters.

We have lots of exciting projects ahead in the New Year but for now, let me wish all of you a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season.
