I saw this sign today on Facebook. It really appealed to me.
I struggle with sadness. I think many of us do, but we are afraid to talk about it. My sister and I talk about it often on the phone. It helps to have someone to talk to and understand.
I always wondered WHY I was so drawn to color. I just love color. In my clothes, in my house and always in my quilts. I guess it is because color is better than sadness.
When I am ironing out all the great fabrics that I dye, almost every day, I love the tranquility that I receive from the process of ironing, but mostly I love looking at the colors.
Today I was ironing out some gorgeous yellows for my Daffodils pattern. I am still amazed at the great mix of colors I get. I have to say working with color and dyeing fabric is one of my favorite things to do, even after doing this for over 20 years.
My Daffodils quilt was inspired by the daffodils that grow under the southwest facing family room window in our home. The daffodils have already popped up, not budded yet, but lots of green and stems even though we still have plenty of snow on the ground.
Nestled among the daffodils would be a great place to hide Easter Eggs.
You think this bunny who is living in the neighbors brush pile is the Easter Bunny? Thank goodness George is too old and slow to catch bunnies anymore.
