Thankful Thursday ~ Sunsets

Every Thursday I share something I'm thankful for.  It's not always easy to find the good and positive in a situation, but it helps my attitude when I do.  This week I'm thankful for the beautiful sunset I unexpectedly saw out the window of my sewing room.

My sewing table sits under the window and I have a great view when I'm sewing.  I was sewing away, and I had to get up to get something and this is what I saw out the window.

It took my breath away.  I had to run downstairs and grab the camera and get out to the porch.  We don't usually see this from the living room window because of the porch and trees, and I'm not usually in the sewing room at this time of day.  I think I've missed a lot of breathtaking sunsets!

I'm also thankful for
     being rescued from a frog in the kitchen (another post for another day!)
     a pleasant doctor visit
     Annie dog and her unconditional love
     the phone call from my son

     What are you thankful for today?

Today's sewing tip:  Prewashing the fabric before using it will cut down on shrinkage when you wash the finished item the first time.  


  1. I am thankful that we have a warmish sunny day even though the trees are telling me autumn is definitely here.

    Gorgeous photos - red sky at night, shepherds' delight!

    This will sound silly but my net curtains came down from the window last week. I really enjoyed being able to see the clouds sitting in the living room. Shame the nets had to go back up! :)


  2. Annette, sunsets are what I live for! From a very young age I have been attracted to them. I am loving your photos today!

  3. Oh my God they're lovely photos.
    I love to see sunset too!


  4. What beautiful pictures! I love sunsets. So glad you looked up and saw that and were able to capture it.

    Today...well I'm home sick with a horrible cold...but on the bright side I"m a tiny bit better than yesterday. :-) And my hubby brought home Thai for dinner last comfort food! :-D

    ps...I have my birthday giveaway going on right now, make sure you pop by.

  5. What a gorgeous sky. God is truly the master artist ! Thank you for such lovely photos and your inspirations.

  6. Pretty sunsets are always worth being thankful for. Wait...someone had to rescue YOU...from a frog? Was it some alien mutant frog with fangs?

  7. WOW that is gorgeous! Stopping by from Etsy Blog Team!

  8. Spectacular photos!!
    I am thankful for warm Autumn days and cool evenings.
    I am thankful for cherry tomatoes right off the vine.
    I am thankful for my backyard where I can enjoy both those pleasures when I come home at night.

  9. Stunning photos! I've also noticed some spectacular sunsets happening lately. I'm thankful that I have the whole night to make art and crafts, that I'm going to visit my brother and his family in one week, and my new glasses are ready (it's been years since I got new ones...don't tell my mom;)). xo, Mary
