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 (or paragraph 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 definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Show ready!

We are one week away from the Southern Comforters Quilt Show, and I think I'm show ready!  My photo today is from the other night, but the flag pictured is where I got my start in "quilting".  My Mom taught me how to crochet, instead of quilting,  and I crocheted this flag as my 'visual' for an 8th grade civics report on Betsy Ross, the flag maker of Philadelphia! And the best part, I still have the report and received an A+ for my efforts!  Actually, this flag was displayed in the front showcase at Charles A. Mooney Junior High School in Cleveland, Ohio!  (I wish I had a photo of me with it in 1978 too)
