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!

25 Years a Quilter

On this day 25 years ago I finished my very first quilt!  It is hand quilted, with some hand-pieced blocks and one appliqué "honey bee" block, and most commonly called a Sampler Quilt. A little bit of "everything",  meaning lots of very traditional quilt blocks. I even remember my teachers name: Cindy Craft, and she was awesome. I signed up for the sampler class at a cute little quilt shop called Hoops-n-Hollers in North Olmsted, Ohio, that unfortunately, closed its doors several years ago. But the class was great and it kick started my interest in quilting and I have never looked back. "I've come a long way, baby"!

BSoleille!  The bright side of a great hobby that I truly embrace!
