Comfort Sewing ~ Row Seven

Good morning, friends!  I hope that you had a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.  It was so good to have our family together.  Its pretty quiet here, this morning, with the kids back to school and my husband making his drive back to his new job.  My heart is full and I'm thankful for a few days with all of them.  I was able to finish row seven of Lori's Row-a-long the day before Thanksgiving but never got a chance to post it.  These leaves were so fun to make!

I want to thank Lori again for all the time and work she has done to make this free Row-a-long available to us.  I think of how busy she must be with family, new fabric lines, pattern writing and more and yet she has taken the time to create this for us.  It is truly something I look forward to every other week.  I think this quilt holds special significance for me because our family is in a season of transition and when this quilt is complete my family will be together again.  In a comforting way, it feels like a traveling companion who will be there through the spring.  I'll be able to hang this in my new home and reflect on the journey it took to get there.   Thank you, Lori, for giving me this.  One of these days I hope that I get the chance to thank Lori in person.  Have a wonderful day!
