when i got home from the bookstore tonight, ezra and i walked to the park and through the neighborhood streets.  it was just settling into darkness.  there were cats skulking through the long grass.  and there were tvs making the windows glow in almost every house.  it's hockey playoffs and tonight is a big game.  i think even people who don't love the leafs are watching.  tom is a life long leafs fan, and it goes generations deep.  there has been some cursing at the tv, and now that it's overtime, i think he has to watch something else completely....the tension is too high.  
i spent last week making baby quilts.  the nursery rhyme quilts are adorable.  they are much like the poetry quilts only with nursery rhymes and soft pretty baby fabric.  twinkle twinkle little star.  baa baa black sheep.  itsy bitsy spider.  i have to get them photographed and listed on etsy.  
i found poems tonight at the bookstore for my next batch of poetry quilts.  neruda and keats.  i love combing through the words.  i write a poem a few times to feel it's essence and let it's fullness sink into my consciousness before i start quilting it.   it's a nice process. 


  1. those poetry and nursery rhyme quilts sound lovely...i look forward to seeing them sometime.

  2. Sorry for Tom...

    Nursery rhyme quilts are a great idea! I'm glad you are continuing with the poetry quilts. Neruda on a cold night...His poem, Poetry, is one of my favorites. "And it was at that age...Poetry arrived in search of me. I don't know, I don't know where it came from, from winter or a river..."

  3. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. That's all.
