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!

Soul Sister Sewing

The act of sewing, retro or not, is good for the soul. I am lucky to share the love of sewing with 24 other remarkable women from all walks of life on this "spring" retreat! I will admit that an "outsider" would look at us and think: "sweatshop", but we all think it's the greatest thing to sew for 15 hours....almost straight! We all work on our own projects for the most part, with a "zinger" thrown in for good "measure", like a mystery quilt (not this time) or a little bag (thanks, Mary Nielsen). Lots of laughter fills the room and we get more advice on anything and everything if you want it, sewing or otherwise....and I'm thankful for that!
