This is Day 3 of the Gratitude Challenge sponsored by Garden of Learning.
Today I am thankful for my sewing machine. I love to sew even though I don’t get to sew as often as I would like. I am thankful for my sewing machine because it works every time I need or want to use it. When I first got married 18 years ago I had a sewing machine that was awful. It would tangle the bobbin threads, the stitches on the bottom of the fabric would not look anywhere near as neat as the top, it just gave me lots of problems. I used that machine for about 6 years. Then, for Christmas one year, my husband gave me the most wonderful present of a new sewing machine. I have used this machine for 12 years now and still love it. I have never had a problem with it. It sews beautifully, top and bottom. I have sewn many clothes, quilts and craft projects with it. As I was packing my machine up to take to church to work on craft projects to sell at the craft sale we have, I was reminded just how grateful I am to have a machine that works so well.
Thank you, Lord, for the blessing of a nice sewing machine to help me
