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!

The 2017 SoCo Quilt Show is in the Books

Another Southern Comforter Quilt Show is now in the books! A huge bucket of cheer and THANKS to all the members of the guild, the quilts, our Featured Quilter, our wonderful vendors, our families and all our guests who came from near and far to support "The Best little Quilt Show in Maryland!" It's was a huge team effort on many parts that came together beautifully, and I am honored to stand beside so many unbelievably creative and talented ladies plus Frank! Never one to back down from a challenge, our fearless leader (Chair) Carrie Casto, and Co-Chair, Misty Cole, led the way to a superb event in Bowie, MD, and they should be very proud of all their valiant efforts in rallying the troops for the entire weekend!

One aspect of our show is that our guests, plus the members, and our vendors vote on all the quilts/items in the show that our showcased in several different categories. These include the size of quilt, whether or not it was pieced or appliqued or mixed media etc., and/or how many people worked on it (two people, group as in a bee or a swap etc.). To win a ribbon is the icing on top of all the hard work that went into one quilt! I am thrilled to announce we had some new members that won several ribbons today in various categories which included Debbi Carter, Shirley Hodge and Joyce Steier. Nice work ladies!

Every single quilt in any show has a story, and I can tell you that many hours of work went into that particular quilt or sewn item. Inspiration abounds with the colors, creativity and intricacy of each piece displayed, no doubt about it!
