Today's blessing block is for my husband :)
He is the captain of a tug boat and tows logs up and down the coast from all of the different logging camps so I thought it would be fitting to make this block a tug boat. He loves to be on the water and actually began as a commercial fisherman.... READ MORE HERE

Today it has been raining like crazy and it made me think about my umbrella and how blessed we are to have such a thing so that we can venture outdoors and explore nature even while the heavens are pouring down on us.... READ MORE HERE

Hooray! I finally have another block or in this case 4 more blocks to share for my Count Your Blessings stitch along :) I am crazy about my clothesline and can often be found actually searching for things to wash during the summer months just so I can bring in the scent of sunshine *grin*....

counting my blessings block

I did it! I finished my very first block *grin*.
I decided that my first one was going to be about what a blessing my vegetable garden is to our family :) Every spring we start seeds indoors and outdoors, growing radishes, carrots, beans, peas, broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes and more. We try.... READ MORE HERE

Amy is hosting another great stitch along and this time the focus is to stitch all of the wonderful things that make our lives so blessed :) I was to late to join in her last one but not this time! I am so excited *grin*. The goal is to create a grid of 100, one inch sized squares and to stitch an image of something or someone that blesses our lives inside each of the squares. What a fantastic way to take stock of all that we have, to appreciate it wholly and to realize that what we think is less can quite often be more!

I love the following quote that she shared and it sums it up perfectly:

"I murmured that I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet." -- Persian Proverb

I've started this page on my blog just for my 'blessing' updates so that you can quickly find new entries and photos to my stitch along blocks without having to sort through my entire blog to find them :) Each time I post a new blessing entry I will put up a photo and a link to the original entry below so you can click over and read it easily. Looking forward to stitching along with you and to read more about Amy's challenge visit her blog at Counting My Blessings :)

Happy Stitching!
