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!

Possibillibee Epiphany

Today being the 12th day of Christmas, or the Feast of the Epiphany, celebrating with my sewing sisters by quilting, sewing, eating, chatting and exchanging our "Christmas gifts" is a great day. Our yearly tradition of an all day sew date culminates with our gift exchange of many "homemade" gifts that we each give to each other and get from each other between the eight of us (bee-mate, Mary Nielsen even sent her gifts from Florida). These very talented ladies out did themselves on the cleverness of their gifts. A big shout of Thanks to Carrie Casto for hosting this year...and now we are all back to the drawing board to think of something for next years exchange.

By the way, this tradition began as making something (or buying) for less than $2. The ante is up a bit, but not much more, and therein lies the great ideas and cleverness of each gift!

BSoleille! The bright side of hanging with the Possibillibees on a cold winter day.


Gifts: Susie - pipe cleaners and felted sewing machine; Carrie - Island Breeze Loofah Soap and homemade lip moisturizer; Janet - Big bottle of Shea Butter lotion; Shelley - 2 fat 1/4's; Cappy - handmade see through bag and fat 1/4; Mary - Notebook of graph paper with personalized front and back cover; Deb - Christmas dish towel, homemade bread, napkins and tea light candles and Terri - set of West River, Maryland photocards and a bee fat 1/4!
