Here is a photograph of that great idea. I am not sure what it will all mean to my friend but I look forward to her response!
Now for an original limerick inspired by today!
Mysterious maker am I
I make things but do not know why
'Til a word heard in whisper
Says "Give to your sister"
Then I see its a piece of her pie
In other news, I agreed to make a set of coasters for my grandmother for Christmas. I was already heading to the fabric store to get some blue* calico for my brother's present (an abstract appliqued/embroidered toss pillow cover, selected because of the cross-country plane ride it must endure) and found fantastic matching prints in brown, cream, orange and olive, blocked batik-inspired and perfect for my globetrotting grandparents. That makes my projects-in-motion list as follows, in order of most pressing:
- Grandmother's quilted coasters
- Brother's appliqued/embroidered pillowcase
- Mr. B's coasters
- Children's artwork embroidered wall hanging
- Top Secret Present for my best friend
- Gray Crocheted Gift for my other awesome friend
- Cathedral Window quilt
There's always more, there's always time for more. I love what I do, I love my life... we shall see what happens next.
*I love the Holy Spirit. He is super-creative and knowing Him takes my art in a lot of different directions. I felt the distinct impression I needed blue for my brother's present, and the blue would be shaped in circles, so that's what we looked for! Holy Spirit was a great shopping buddy today!
