It’s not happiness that makes you grateful…
…it’s gratitude that makes you happy. Or so they say. 😛
And look! It’s sunshine! THAT makes me happy!
My slow dial-up internet connection and the six times I attempted to upload this tiny photograph before it finally went through doesn’t make me happy, BUT! there’s always a silver lining if you are willing to look for it.
While I waited, I realized that even though I was celebrating the sunshine and blue skies this morning, I was still very embarrassed with the state of my front yard. But then, looking again, I remember that my first thought when I looked out this morning was how beautifully the light shimmered in the dewdrops covering the grasses of various heights.
And who cares what the pretty blonde lady with the swinging ponytail thinks as she runs by? My birds LOVE their little sanctuary! I bet there are tons of worms and bugs and cool little hiding places for my tiny sparrows to enjoy.
Anyway, on to the quilting news: TA DAH! I finished this up yesterday while visiting with Linda at the Sugar n’ Spice. (And no, I can’t show it to you yet.)
My favorite part of quiltmaking is when I am rounding the LAST corner, tacking down my binding and I realize that this quilt is almost done. Yay! My second favorite part of quiltmaking is taking the quilt out of the dryer and it has become all crinkly and it’s warm and it just feels goooood!
What is your favorite part of quiltmaking?
