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!

Road to Retreat 2018

The “Road Trip” is this years theme for my quilt guilds annual February retreat held in West River, Maryland. The day started with sunny skies and easy driving conditions... and ended with a snowy/slushy wintry mix. Thankfully, the 21 strong “travelers” only had to safely drive their sewing machines in creating a plethora of vacation memories including piecing quilts, making a happy camper pincushion, navigating a mystery quilt, and crafting a travel set (remember the old train cases?).  And let's not forget the spa detour for some weary drivers in getting an hour message!
Hearty laughter, good snacks and all the solicited (and unsolicited) advice you could ever want or need helped us to arrive at our destination today.  
"Are we there yet?"
