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!

While on a quilt retreat weekend, you get to know your fellow quilters quite well, especially their style of quilting, favorite color choices, and the awesomeness of all their productivity, creativity, community, charity and even tranquility (we had message therapists Saturday and Sunday for those "needing" a message!). It's a whirl of activity all day long, and long into the night....(or at least we used to), to accomplish something, like a finished top, a water color painting, a men's shirt, or even a start of something new. It's an open slate to do whatever you want to do, and I am thankful for the time to devote to my passion with others who have the same passion(s) as me.

My photos today include productivity, creativity, community, and tranquility by my fellow retro retreaters....Painting by Barbara Alderman; quilt top components by Mary Nielsen, men's shirt by Karen Todd, bag parts by Carrie Casto and bag part/pool noodles, ahem, finished by Deb Hoppe, and candids of Carrie and Susie Stevenson and Misty Cole (my table partner) while working at her machine.
