Even with all the stress that we are all under, be it illness, loss of job, lack of sales I believe we all need to take time and think of what we do have that we can be thankful for. So I decided to have a Thanksgiving Giveaway,.

To participate all you need to do is leave a comment under this post about what you have to be thankful for this Holiday Season. You do not need to be a follower of this blog, although if you are and also leave a comment you are entered twice. I am also posting this on my facebook fan page, so if you leave a comment there then you are entered again, and if you are a fan and leave a comment you are entered 2 more times. So you actually have 4 chances to be entered and win. I will draw a name next Monday, Nov. 23 and send out the pot holders that day, so hopefully you will have them by Thanksgiving. Please also tell me where I can find you such as you a member of uwib, or quiltsy or creatibility or live the name of you shop so I can contact you if you are the winner

To get started I want to state what I am thankful for. I actually have many reasons, my husband has a good steady job, we are reasonably healthy, but I think what I am most thankful for is a wonderful family, husband, daughter, grandkids, son-in-law and more.
