Free Pattern: Jacket in Crochet


Hello Everyone Happy Sunday! I am so excited as my Hubby will be home in 10 days...not like I am counting or anything. So in this month of thanks we reflect on things that we are thankful for. Out of the mouth of my 8 year old big boy, "does this mean that people are not thankful all year round mom?" I told him that it is a time to remember the history of our country and to reflect deeper on the things we take for granted everyday. Today I am thankful to have my family as they remind me of all of the things I am thankful for.
