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!

That "Someday" Fabric

As a quilter, we love fabric, and consequently buy "a lot" of it for that "someday" project. Typically its purchased for the ideas we have swirling around our heads, or we have a viable pattern we'd like to try, perhaps, ahem, someday...

Well, I am happy to report that today was that "someday" for the candy cane fabric my bee-mates, plus me, purchased as couple of years ago at Obie's (thanks, Mary Nielsen who started the trend). I had sworn off making any more Christmas quilts a few years ago, but, those same quilts left a lot of scraps that began screaming at me to use up. Sew...a few days ago we had our annual sew day, and that's where I began going through those scraps.

Today, while hosting my bee, I continued to work on the same scrap quilt, and finished the top a couple hours ago. I'm trilled to have used up a lot of those scraps, but there always "seams" to be more in the stash that I simply can't get to.

BSoleille! The bright side of today being a "someday."
