This is the center quilt panel on my table runner. I skipped Halloween and went right to Thanksgiving, especially since my Canadian friends had Thanksgiving last week. I am more aware that every day is thanksgiving day since Ann Voskamp’s 1000 Gifts was published in January, instantly became a New York Times bestseller and continues to change the hearts of Christians all over the world. So in honor of the success of 1000 Gifts and my Canadian friends who meet me here in this space and in preparation of my heart for my country’s own Thanksgiving day in a month, I post my snapshot of the quilted runner my daughter-in-law, Kelly, made me with Psalm 118:1 superimposed upon it.
I would like to mention that Kelly gathered together a group of women at her church and they are making sleeping bags for the homeless of Camden, New Jersey. Here she is completing a sleeping bag by tying knots through the layers. I am a thankful mother-in-law, Dawn
