    I’m thankful for you; that you take the time, no matter what, to communicate and share your expertise and processes with us all. Cheers!

    Thank you so much for sharing your vast knowledge on needlework with everyone. I am just starting out again after 30 years and am so thankful to have “stumbled” across your site and look forward to visiting time and time again.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Of course we don’t celebrate it here in Australia, our biggie is January 26 when we have Australia Day.

    However it just so happens that this year your TG and my birthday coincide, so while I wish you all the best for your celebration, I have had a very lovely day of my own. So we are all happy, I hope.

  8. Dear Mary,

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and all who are dear to you.

    I have many things to be thankful for…one of them being you.
    A sincere thank you for your generosity, your dedication & energy. You must be such a great human being to know personally!!!

    God bless.
    Love, Melanie

  9. G’day Mary, and yes, do hope you had a special day.
    Thankfulness is a blessing isn’t it. It’s almost impossible for animosity to take root in a thankful heart. I must remember to remember that very often.
    After a few years of receiving your posts, I still look forward to them with anticipation, every day.
    Thank You
    Cheers, Kath

  10. Dear Mary, I want to put All the good wishes from above together and send them to you. The gratitude we have for all you do for us is immense.
    Happy Thanksgiving and Thank YOU.
