You all have greatly encouraged me to take the plunge into creativity. Even though I am not quite ready to totally leave the dock - I am thrilled to report that I have dipped in my big toe and it feels great!
While I haven't taken a trip to Dairy Queen lately (where I need to report that my favorite blizzard flavor is Cappuccino Chip) - I did go to a fabric store and purchased material for the sudoku quilt idea. I am SO excited!
I spent this evening pre-washing the material, ironing, and cutting out.
I also have an idea of doing a quilt for my son using only black/white fabrics with a splash of red. We'll see how this one works out first.
So there you have my quilt idea. Not quite a literary concept - but it has been influenced by my novel idea that focuses on the Impressionists.
I will also share a few of the poems I have found this week in Caroline Kennedy's anthology, She Walks in Beauty. I am thoroughly enjoying this book - and I appreciate that Ms. Kennedy is teaching me to s-l-o-w down and enjoy the language and images of these thoughtful pieces.
