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!

In the Last Box...

While on "blizzard quilt retreat" in my own home, with a full family of four and dog that needs attention, constantly, (especially while I'm sewing), it may not be a "retreat" after all. But, alas, I did get some good time in - especially overturning and overhauling my sewing room looking for one piece of fabric. Of course, that one piece was the very LAST place and box I looked in. Never fear, that red and white polka dot fabric was my go to border for a quilt I finished today and I had just enough by one inch exactly! It was so close I was sweating it out as I sewed on that last border. I measured everything meticulously (even twice) but I still thought I may come up short. It was a quilters "blizzard miracle", friends, and for that I am truly thankful!

BSoleille! The bright side of one inch ahead!

Photo of the Blizzard and Dots quilt that will be in the Southern Comforters Quilt Show coming up this March 12,13 at Samuel Ogle Middle School in Bowie, Maryland. Hope to see you there!
