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!

"The Bias"

Learning a new technique in anything requires concentration and "stick-to-a-tive-ness". A self taught one, maybe one notch up on the scale. So with pride today, I tell you I learned how to make bias tape (3/8") for stems and leaves for a quilt I am making. I tried making some yesterday with a practice piece that I messed up. I consulted several web sites and blogs to find the one that "spoke" to me best on mastering this odd, but very useful technique, and successfully made 400" of bias tape in great leafy green color. I am thankful I stuck with it; yes, an "old dog can learn new tricks"!

BSoleille!  The bright side of sticking to learning something kind of hard (at least for me).
