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!

It's Not Only the Quilting...

Being on a weekend quilt retreat, one would suspect there is a lot of sewing/quilting going on. And that part is true. However, with the fabric artists on retreat this weekend, the talent is truly off the charts...and it's not only the quilting. It's the pin cushions (snails), the rugs, the tote bags and dynamic projects all over the "work" room! Everyone has brought their talents and gifts of color and design, and it's a sight to behold.

One thing I find fascinating is the thought process in going into every project for each person. Some elements include the colors, the fabrics and the pattern on how it all goes together to please the eye!

Take a look at some of the "works" this weekend...
