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!

Learning Something New

Do you ever have to "force" yourself to learn something new? Or more importantly, sticking to a difficult task to "master". For me, a favorite quilting technique for lots of quilters is paper piecing. Over the years I have avoided it like the plague. But something this past weekend gave me a change of heart, and with minimal guidance, muscled through making a paper pieced "block" for our guild's anniversary quilt that's raffled off in May. 

Thankfully, I really enjoyed the process of figuring it out (on my own mostly) and thrilled with the finished result. It would be great to win it!

BSoleille!  The bright side of a learning curve!
