Ever Thankful

"Be Thankful"
design by Maggie Bonanomi

The original design said "Be Thankful"
I chose to change it to "Ever Thankful"

Ever (adv.) at all times, always, continuously, without ceasing

Yes, I try to be Ever Thankful.

I tried adding tongues on the ends, but decided that I preferred Maggie's version - beautiful in it's simplicity.

I added this tag to the back. This is the last project that I worked on while Orion would sit on my lap, happy to have my wool project keep him warm as I worked :) I finished it after his passing.

I am Ever Thankful to have had Orion as part of our family.

"but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
~Isaiah 40:31

Blessings, Patti

That is a beautiful piece and a beautiful sentiment in memory of Orion. When I lost my kitty, I made a heart quilt, it was a way to remember him and get me through the loss.

I'm catching up on blogpost readings my friend and am saddened to read about your sweet pup.... May he rest in heaven.... Your stitchery is a handsome piece that will bring on the fond memories.... LOVE the long arm staple idea.... I'll need to scour one up..... And the tiny traveling magnetic tin is genius! You never seem to amaze me.... Keep up the inspirational posts.... Merry Christmas~~
