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!

Variety is the Spice of Life

Right? It is a good mantra, no doubt, and that is what Augusta Cole, our quilt guild's guest speaker tonight, mentioned quite a few times while sharing her quilts and stories that go along with each of them. She is a snappy scrappy quilter and doggone proud of it, as well should be by the plethora of beautiful quilts shown to us. Augusta, forever a teacher with a thick southern drawl, was quick witted and pinged around the stage while discussing half-square triangles, four-patch squares, and squares in a square; all for the fun of pursuing her passion of quilting (mostly large quilts)...and, hopefully, ours too.

You can check her out at her website: www.augustacolequilting.com

BSoleille! The bright side of variety is the spice of life....
