i love that summer has stretched quite nearly into october. real summer. hot full barefoot days. humid fog-laden nights with suicidal frogs jumping into the road, making driving torturous. the windows are still as wide open as they will go and the sounds of crickets and waves still wander in all through the night. tom is playing guitar in the living room, learning new songs. ellsworth follows edgar and i to the park on our nightly walk. ellsworth is one of our cats. he follows us along the sidewalk, wanders around the park with us and continues with us around the block and home. the loop of summer continues and i hold my breath because i know that soon i'll wake up and need to pull on a pair of socks.
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
