31 Days (Day 31) of Cup Cozies – Free/Be Thankful Cornucopia Cozy

Last day……. of 31 Days of Cup Cozy Challenge – Be Thankful Cornucopia

This might be my favorite cozy for the whole month of October.  It’s important to be thankful for all that we have, family, friends, home, etc.  Just the act (Being mindful) of what we do have, instead of what we don’t have is therapeutic and sets our minds on the right track for the day. I know it’s hard to do sometimes, but for me it’s something I must practice everyday and to thank Christ for all the goodness in my life.  It’s too easy to focus on the negative.  (Don’t want to be preachy here.)

Not everything was perfect along the way when it came to embroidering the knit cozies.  Out of 31 cozies my machine did not accept 4 of them.  Most of the designs worked on the knitted fabric and I’m grateful for that!  See I’m trying to practice being thankful.

This has been a fun experience doing the 31 Days of Cup Cozies, and surprised that I was able to blogged everyday.  I generally don’t blog everyday and part of me thinks that most people don’t even want to hear from me all that often.  But I’m grateful for those that do follow me and hope that you learn something about knitting, crochet, embroidery or some inspirational thought for that day.  I’m getting too mushy…..sorry about that, Ha ha!

* GIVEAWAY/FREE!  If you liked today’s cozy so much that you would like to own it, then please tell me briefly why you would like the “Be Thankful” cozy.  Maybe about what your thankful for : )  Reply at the bottom of this blog.  I will announce the winner for the free cozy this coming Sunday 6 pm pacific standard time.  I will contact the winner by email and ship the cozy on the following Monday, November 5th.  Good luck!!

Have a safe and fun Halloween and Happy knitting : )




  1. Marilyn,

    This is beautiful! Frankly all have been but I especially like this one. It is so appropriate for the season, too.

    I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your 31 day challenge and opening my email each day to see your newest daily creations. I am going to miss them.

    As for being thankful – I am thankful each day for the wonderful friends I have in you and John, among other things. You have been a true friend in every sense of the word and such a tremendous blessing in our lives.

    Have a wonderful day and know that we love and appreciate you.


    • Thanks so much Marge, what a good friend you are : )
