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!

"Almost My Last Christmas Quilt"

A few years ago during the back to black Blizzards of 2010 (and before this blog), I put together and quilted four fairly large Christmas quilts. It was a lot if work, but they all turned out great. At that time I exclaimed, "I'm not buying anymore Christmas fabric and I'm not making another Christmas quilt".  I am eating crow and just finished another one at this past weekend's retreat. It's fairly scrappy, and I really tried to use up my Christmas scraps as well as my fellow quilter Trish's scraps. I will admit now I do not have much left in the way of Christmas fabric and will not buy another inch of it if I can help it!

BSoleille!  The bright side of whittling down a quilt stash of fabric.
