30 Days of Thankfulness: November 5

Today I am thankful for my sewing machine.  I know maybe that sounds silly, but I was working on some projects today, and having a good reliable machine is such a blessing. :)  Can you imagine the olden days before sewing machines were invented, when everything had to be hand-sewn?!  I certainly can't . . . I don't think I would have had enough patience. :)  

My projects this afternoon were little dolls for Operation Christmas Child boxes.  I got a bit of a late start, but at least collection week is still two weeks away. :)  And I *think* I have almost everything else to pack in the boxes, besides the handmade things.  Pictures will be forthcoming, once I get everything finished!

A new sewing machine sounds wonderful! We're in the market for one too for our new little seamstress. Hugs, dear friend!

I'm thankful for my sewing machine too! I have so much fun making little projects using it.

And I think it's really neat that you are using your sewing machine to bless someone else, too -- the children who will receive the little dolls in their gift boxes. I wonder if it's too late for me to get a shoebox or two together?

Me again...not sure why I said a new machine. Oops! But a reliable one is good, new or not! :D
