A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has defintely been a challenge every day throughout the past three years, but I welcome the challenge again this year 2015. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

A Big Bag Lady

I love bags (including purses and wallets) in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and I also like to make them as well. Today I had a 2Bee sewing session with friend and fellow quilter Mary Nielsen. She has a pretty sweet sewing set up in her basement that is just terrific. We got together to work on 2/3 "travel trio" bags we will share and coach how to make them at our upcoming guild retreat in February.

Thankfully, I only needed to bring my fabric as Mary had plenty of tools for both of us to work on our projects. In fact, she had plenty of extra sewing machine needles because I kept breaking them trying to sew through the many layers of seams!

My photos include our 2bee session this afternoon and... Tada " the big bag".
