Feeling blessed on this Slow Stitching Sunday.

Sometimes things happen to make you really appreciate what you have. Yesterday morning I got a phone call from Greg that he was in a car accident. The kids had already been dropped off to his Mom when someone pulled out in front of him. Both cars were towed but both people (Greg and the lady in the other car) were ok after the accident. It makes you stop and count your blessings for what you have and are blessed with.

Tonight I will be doing some slow stitching on this appliqué block to finish off the 6 leaves. Then tomorrow I can start with the pretty blue flowers while waiting in the car line on the kids. Don't mind the wrinkles - it was tucked into my busy bag for work yesterday.


Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other slow stitching is being worked on today.
