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!

NeedleOnFull in Full Swing

While working on T-Shirt Quilts, I continue to be amazed on how many millions of T-shirts there are in T-Shirt Land. Currently I am working on a 3-pack for a client's three adult children, and I seem to be "transported" to the various locations on the T-shirts, or for the quilts I am working on now, the colleges they attended. I really love to consider all the combinations the shirts will end up being placed in the quilt (an art I must say), plus adding the "extras" (which can be patches or anything I can get my needle through). For the three quilts I am working on, I am also incorporating a plethora of men's dress shirts (shirting); and they are shaping up beautifully with this "design element."

Today, while working on the University of North Carolina T-shirts, I was "transported" to Chapel Hill, North Carolina; a fine area of the country, and a great University; so "Carolina On My Mind" was sung in my head the rest of the day. For some reason, "Sweet Caroline" was not the tune this time...
