Happy Thanksgiving


A very Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I’m hoping that my American friends have spent a wonderful day with family and friends, feasting on turkey and pumpkin pie!

It’s the time of the year, when we pause and focus on all the things we are thankful for in our lives.

I’m so very thankful for your continual love of my crochet patterns and of course my book, Granny Square Love. Earlier this year it was translated into 5 other languages, without your support that would not have happened . . . . so thank you!!

I’m a big believer of giving back . . . so I’ve decided to do up a nice little ‘thank you’ parcel for one very special reader! Simply leave a comment on this blog post telling us what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving and the random number generator will select one lucky person to receive a parcel full of yarn and hooks from me!

  4. There are so many things in my life that I am thankful for that I am not sure where to begin. I am thankful for my loving husband, my parents, my husband’s parents, my two boys, our jobs that we have, our fellow church members, loving neighbors, etcetera , etcetera. I am thankful for my life and the days for which I have been given, the crochet talent I have on loan from God and the fact that I can share it with others. I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! :)

  11. Happy Thanksgiving Sarah. Thank you for everything you share with your readers. I started reading your blog in 2009 when I was off work undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Three years down the line now and all seems to be going well. I am so thankful to all the amazing French doctors who are still taking care of me today. During my time at home I started learning to crochet and have discovered a most enjoyable craft.

  12. Having read everyone’s comments, and finding myself grateful for most of the above, I looked out the window thinking “What else am I grateful for?” and all the beautiful trees that I was gazing at came to the forefront.

  20. This year I am thankful for simply being alive, reconnecting with my family and having the opportunity to say a final goodbye to my dearest grandmother, the matriarch of our family, making new friends, being able to enjoy watching my children grow and reach out into the world, feeling how everything is connected, experiencing my own personality evolving and maturing, being able to overcome most fears and live a more fulfilling live, the list just goes on and on and yet I have so much more to be thankful for!

  21. I am thankful for the miracle of life, mine and others. For shelter over my head and food on the table. Family and friends. health and happiness.

I see I’m not the first person to be grateful for the internet–but how was it possible before, to connect with so many people from so far away who share your passion? I would be a very lonely crocheter indeed.

  24. I’m thankful for the years I had with my mother. She taught me so much, but most of all she taught me how to be a great mum to my own children. I wish she was still with us so that I could thank her.

  25. I have seen many post lately on so much thankfulness and love reading it all. Warms my heart.

I pray that someday I will have a granddaughter that I can do the same.
