Thanksgiving Heart--Art Quilt

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

(Thanksgiving Heart, Art Quilt, Swarovski Crystals, 9" x 12")

"Everyday Day Is a Reason for Giving,
And Giving Is the Key to Living . . ."

by Helen Steiner Rice

So let us give ourselves away,
not just today but every day,
And remember, a kind and thoughtful deed
or a hand outstretched in a time of need
Is the rarest of gifts, for it is a part
not of the purse but a loving heart,
And he who gives of himself will find
true joy of heart and peace of mind.

ENJOY YOUR DAY WITH YOUR LOVED ONES.

The thread painting dramatically changes the image.
