Q is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to Q week!

This week is a no-brainer for me.

2012 Creativity Retreat women & “jelly roll race” quilts


Six weeks from today I will be heading off for the annual Creativity Retreat. These women know how to turn anyone into a quilting addict.

What are your Q words today in the realm of thankfulness?

  1. Your quilt is so pretty. I am sure they think of all the love you put into that as they go sleep.
    Q is a harder letter to think of a word that I am thankful for.
    Quinoa! I love quinoa. Salads, main dish it is so tasty and good for you. There I did it lol

  2. I am not a quilter but I am in awe and admiration at the beauty of those quilts. Lovely! I’m also intrigued by the idea of a Creativity Retreat.

    In communion with the other commenters, I am thankful for quiet, questions, quiche and quinoa. I also like the word ‘quincunx’ which means ‘five objects arranged in a square’ like the dots on the #5 side of the dice. I know that word because when I was a kid I was Quirky and read the dictionary for entertainment.

  3. I am thankful for the QUIET times in my life when I’ve enjoyed beautiful sunsets and sunrises, watched a baby sleeping, prayed in an empty church sanctuary, walked along mountain paths with Mt Rainier, or Mt Adams, or Mt, St Helens in view.
