My wish for you is, if
you didn't already know it before this Christmas season, that you had
a personal epiphany. To quote Pope Benedict, "Love is the
'greatest' gift, that gives value to all others". (Paraphrasing 1
Twelfth Gift - Love, The Greatest Gift of All
Our Gift of Love includes
- HEARTS IN THE WINDOW, a CSN
- 7 FAT QUARTERS
- 1 spool of WHITE THREAD
We start with Valentine-theme
fabrics. A lovely holiday in February, but we need to hold Love
in our hearts the year 'round.
bundle includes a basic spool of white cotton thread. It is not
fancy. It doesn't need to be to do the job. If it breaks,
just re-thread the needle and stitch some more. There is plenty
of it to go around. It isn't too thick, doesn't get in the
way. It is just there, holding things together. But don't
take it for granted, or forget about it, as it is bad if you run
out. It is a lot like Love.
