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!

Quilting Inspiration

My quilt guild's program tonight included hosting Cheryl Lynch - fiber artist, author, designer and teacher. She gave a wonderful presentation on what inspires her, and in turn, hoped to inspire us as well. Circles, squiggly lines, wrought iron, tiles and flooring are just a smidgen of what inspires Cheryl. Her quilts are beautiful and what I liked best was the fact she incorporates all types of fabric, not just cotton. I loved the use of silks plus interesting embellishments for her one-of-a-kind creation.
