A package in the mail, Maple Leaf Block success and I am thankful for....

I recently won a giveaway over at Violette's site Hand Quilting and guess what showed up in the mail?  A wonderful Moda Brannock and Patek Remembrance Layer Cake.  The colors are absolutely gorgeous!  She also sent a really neat card showing where she lives with a nice note.  Thank you Violette.   I don't think my camera shows the colors very well but take my word for it the colors really are beautiful.

I  have gotten several inquiry's and suggestions about  my messed up Maple Leaf block well I did finally figure it out.  I tore out a couple of seams and squared up the wonky squares, measured everything again and put it back together.  And TADA!

Eventually it is going in a mug rug but right now I am working on Christmas projects.  I had to fix it because it was driving me nuts!!!

I am thankful for, my husband, my children, my grandchildren, our parents, and that all of them are healthy and happy.  I am thankful that we live in a free country and that there are people that protect us.  I am thankful that God loves us no matter what.  I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, friends, and loved ones.
