WOW... has it really been a month since my last post??? Where did November go? Oh, I remember! A lot has gone on this month and I have so much news to share with you, but being that it is still November, I want to share my thanks!

Thanks to my beautiful kids for all you do and share with me. I am so grateful for each and everyone of you. I am thankful for the hugs that I get from you even after I get done yelling at you for not picking up your toys. I am thankful for the beautiful pictures you draw for me and sweet notes you write at school. I am thankful for the pitter patter of little toes and hands crawling and walking towards me.

Thanks to my awesome hubby for your loving support. I am so thankful to have you in my life. I am thankful for you telling me the truth when I ask your opinion. You are always there when I need someone to talk to and you support everything I do.

Thanks to my mom for dropping everything to help me out. I am thankful for you watching the kids every week so I can go into the office to work. I am thankful for you teaching me how to sew at a young age. I am very thankful for you not getting mad when I backed up into your vehicle this week. <3

Thanks to Moda Fabrics for creating beautiful fabrics. I am thankful to be able to work for a great company that cares about their employees. I am thankful for the quality of fabrics and the designs that are printed for us to create with. I am also very thankful to be a new fabric Designer for Moda. YES, you read me right! Sneak peeks coming soon!

Thanks to Stash Books for publishing my designs. I am thankful to have my very own book published this year, Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew! I am thankful to have been a contributing author in 3 books so far, Sweet Celebrations, Fresh Fabric Treats, and Modern Blocks. I am thankful to be able to work with the Stash and C&T Publishing team again for my second book that is scheduled to be published in 2013.

Thanks to the lady at the Target Starbucks for paying it forward. I was standing in line to get a coffee from Starbucks in Target and a mom with a little girl in front of me flashed her phone at the cashier when he asked me what I wanted. I didn't think anything of it, I just figured she was paying for her coffee. When I received my coffee, I handed my card to the cashier and he said, that the lady infront of me already paid for mine. Oh my goodness, Are you serious? How did I miss that? By then, she was already gone and had no idea where she disappeared to. How nice! What a kind and generous act it was for that mom to do that for another mom. I left there feeling so thankful that we live around such a great area where people still give a hoot.

I am thankful I was able to meet an awesome group of girls at Market. Thanks to Katrina, Heather and Stephanie for being Angels at Quilt Market! I think these three could tell I was in need of some coffee the first day of market. They were so sweet and brought me a Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha to the booth for me.  THEY ROCK!  Then we partied at the Moda Appreciation Party where I was able to meet Sarah and rock out a few line dances with all of them. Sarah has some cute pictures and videos of all the fun on her blog.  All three of these girls are awesome!

Thanks to all my family and friends for everything! I am so blessed to have such special people in my life.

AND Thanks to YOU for reading my blog! I love receiving your comments and learning more about each and everyone of you. I am so glad you visited my blog and hope you will stay for a while. :)
