Blessings Tree Table Runner

Creative Quilters, I’d like to introduce you to Blessings Tree, the November edition of our year-long color-of-the-month enhanced e-pattern series:

Every Thanksgiving I long for a way to permanently record our blessings.  As often as I teach my children the lesson of gratitude and try to practice it myself, the daily carpool, school, work, dinner, and errands tend to take over, and we forget.  Here is a simple way to remember, record, and reflect.

The tree starts out bare, just branches, trunk, and buttons.  During our Thanksgiving day with extended family, we’ll catch up with stories of loved ones lost, children who’ve sprouted so tall you barely recognize them, and hugs and kisses all around.  As we cook, catch up, and enjoy time with those we love so much, we’ll begin adding leaves to the tree.

We’ll each write down on a leaf, with a gold metallic marker, what we’re grateful for this sign, sign and date it.  As more and more family members add their blessings, the leaves begin to accumulate.

Then, before we all sit down to the meal, everyone will add their gratitude leaf to the tree, until it’s overflowing with blessings.

Enjoy your loved ones this Thanksgiving holiday.  Cherish the time together, and continue to remember how richly you’ve been blessed with November’s Blessing Tree pattern.

Here’s a hint for next month:  count the branches on the tree.  Hhhmm, would be great for December, too, wouldn’t it?  Stay tuned and I’ll show you how to turn the Blessings Tree into an Advent Tree for Christmas.

    I want to show some appreciation to you for bailing me out of this type of difficulty. Right after exploring through the the net and finding tips which were not pleasant, I figured my life was over. Living without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve solved all through this post is a critical case, and the ones that could have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not discovered the blog. Your actual natural talent and kindness in handling every item was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for your expert and sensible help. I will not think twice to refer your web page to any person who should have assistance on this topic.

    I am sorry for off-topic, I am considering about making an enlightening web-site for young students. May probably commence with posting interesting facts such as”Americans on the average eat 18 acres of pizza every day.”Please let me know if you know where I can find some related info like here
