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 Threads of Life...

As a quilter, there are a lot of tools of the trade, with a sewing machine one of the biggest things to own. Now, sure, there are still a few hold-outs on owning a machine and therefore hand sew, but by and large most sewists own at least one machine (many have several...).

However, besides irons and scissors, and sewing machines, thread is the next "best" thing. I happen to carry a large bag of ROY G BIV threads (always take on retreat), but the last few times I dug into it to get a specific color, a cacophony of thread (like thread throw up) was all disheveled. I couldn't take it another minute so I dumped a large bag right at the foot of my sewing space and "reorganized" the thread by color(s). Now I have this large bag contained with smaller bags of like colors and I hope that will be good enough for sewing throughout 2020 and beyond...
