our spring continues to haunt us with rain. it' s almost may and i have had only one line of laundry dry. we still have fires in the fireplace and the raking hasn't been done. the weather is in charge. there is so much painting to be done at the house we're selling. but the rain simply won't allow it. i usually love the melancholy of a rainy day. even a rainy week. but it has stayed too long now. the feeling of being drenched in a cave of creativity has passed. and we need the sunny side of spring now. the warm and misty spring mornings. walking early in the mornings along the lake. these days will find us soon.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
