Be Thankful


Here's a special song for you to sing during the season (or any time you need to fall asleep with a smile on your face...although you may get so happy you'll have to get up and stitch on something - grin).

(To be sung to the tune, "COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS", with my apologies to Mr. Irving Berlin for playing around with his wonderful lyrics.)

"When you're worried and you can't sleep,
Just count your projects instead of sheep,
And you'll fall asleep, counting your projects.

When your thread stash is getting small,
Just think of when you had none at all,
And you'll fall asleep, counting your projects.

I think about my craft room,
And I picture drawers of thread;
And one by one, I count them -
Blues and golds and greens and reds....

Soooooooo, if you're worried and you can't sleep,
Just count your projects instead of sheep,
And you'll fall asleep.........
COUNTING YOUR PROJECTS."


HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYONE!
