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 Pillowcase Project

Today some of my quilt guild-mates met at a local church in Bowie, Maryland, to help a young lady, Madylene, a 13 year old Girl Scout working on her Silver Award Project. She, with her parents, got some community involvement in the making of 60 pillowcases for the University of Maryland Children's Hospital, Child Life Department, a wonderful beneficiary for this superb endeavor.  Her goal- 60 pillowcases, but at last count before I left, 156 cases! How wonderful for the kids that will be getting a colorful "homemade" pillowcase; and wonderful for Maddie and knocking her Silver Award out of the park! A win-win for all!


Our pillowcase leader - Madylene


Guild: L-R: Misty Cole; Pat Scully, Joyce Dorn, Susie Stevenson, Flo Marion, Maddy, Cappy and me.
