Thanksgiving Sewing Projects

Rejoice always, pray continually,

give thanks in all circumstances

~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

Here are some Thanksgiving sewing projects to add a little warmth to your home in this season. Ann Voskamp writes that the key to true joy in life is to give thanks to God for all things in all circumstances. If you have not read her book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are then I highly recommend it! I constantly have to buy new copies because I give it away every chance I get. The story is about how a homeschooling mother of 6 learns to find true joy in the mundane, repetitive tasks of everyday housekeeping and care-taking. As this season of busyness begins we can be in too much of a hurry to stop and notice what is around us and pause to give thanks for even the smallest or unnoticed gifts in our lives.

I am in one of the craziest seasons of my life as I balance my master’s degree work with my stay at home mom work, and certainly this blog work which has been suffering the most. Many days I feel like I’m barely keeping my head above water! But in that frustration of feeling like I’m never going to keep up, I remember that not even a year ago I was pulled down by the undertow of depression and anxiety, so accomplishing any one of the tasks on my to-do list was a challenge. Now I’m a grad level college student again who still loves beautiful fabric and lovely sewing projects, and though I may never love trying to catch up on the laundry or swishing toilets, I know that I have so much for which to be thankful.

If you are working on any Thanksgiving sewing projects (most of you have probably moved on to Christmas already, haven’t you!) take the time as you work to give over thanks to the One who provides all good things.
