The 18th through the 20th of December was a fine early Christmas celebration at our house. The day afterwards, despite having gotten the flu shot (I try to be first in line, I am such a believer), I came down with a non-bacterial bug that lasted 2 1/2 weeks. Along with that enervating problem, bronchitis, I had pills for some minor double skin surgery and wounds to heal. I don't suppose I thought it was "the end," but when I finally got well, I was so overcome with gratitude that the entire world was Spring again. I loved and appreciated breathing, walking and looking...just being alive, often what is so easy to take for granted. Thus, I sewed in the journal quilt
, the black shade's being lifted on the short dark window of my life...a special memorable incident!
Wow, Linda, the creativity exhibited here is mind-blowing! It is clever, original, and beautiful too. As always, I am in awe.ReplyDelete
The little things really are the big things in life, n'est ce pas? I'm so glad you are well and creating again...but even when you are NOT well, you display a creative spirit. Stay well, though. --- I love your lively material.ReplyDelete
What a perfect visual description of all that you went through. The window with the black shade being lifted is such an ideal way to tell your story. I love the material you used for the background - it's upbeat & full of beauty & life.ReplyDelete
A wonderful journal quilt. It is such a relief to get well. We take good health foregranted until the bug strikes. Love your butterflies of spring! Spring seems so far away this January day.ReplyDelete
