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 quilter's parlance, or at least my quilt guild's, SSS is short for "Secret Sewing Sister". All weekend long at retreat we leave little gifts of sewing items, food items and fabric (favorite colors!) to your randomly assigned sewing sister. The stealth part is quite a production since, ahem, some do not move from their machine much (I'm guilty!). Interestingly, my SSS left my gifts all over the building, and thankfully, other folks dropped off my little gift bags to my table, or told me that there is a bag with my name on it in the kitchen, or in my bedroom or somewhere (she is very clever!). I got the "message" and then maybe one or two at my machine....over the couple days.

The "big reveal" is on Sunday after we come back from lunch, and I really had no clue who was my SSS. Let me add I loved every item from my sewing sister; so without further adieu, a big hearty THANK YOU goes to Leslie Sumner! She nailed every item from "soup to nuts", and I can't wait to use my beautiful fabrics along with many of the other notions she gave me throughout the weekend!

Terri - Keep on blogging! Great to keep up with all of you this way since I'm not a facebook user. Nice to see Bill learning HTML (although not many people write directly in it anymore). Have him learn C# and Java.
