This is the season we are to express our gratitude for all that has been given us. But with a worldwide pandemic bringing fear and isolation hanging over our heads, political divisiveness, climatic upheavals, and shortages of things like toilet paper and thread we may be left wondering what there is to be grateful for. Then we are privileged to see Marcia’s beautiful challenge quilt, “Hope,” and are reminded how grateful we can be for the companionship and generosity of our quilting community. I think of all the challenges we’re facing in our own lives and how we have still been able to reach out with support for each other and our community--coming together virtually, making thousands of masks and other PPI, and exceeding our goal for community service quilts. It makes me proud to be a part of such a caring organization. And I am grateful for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving!
