Great quote - I must remember it.

On an unrelated note...do you sell any of these quilts you make and if so can we talk a bit about that? I would love to purchase one for a friend who is not feeling well these days.

ca & dd ;)

gary - yes, my niche is making such quilts - to heal, to celebrate, or to commemorate a special occasion or event. I guarantee that each quilt does have a bit of good magic stitched in it. but of course, one has to believe! I'll email you.

I don't find truths as prickly as lies (with apologies to Thoreau). Love seeing a rose right now. It's 5 degrees in DC this morning. (shiver)

Truths seem to depend so much on perspective - roses are always honest about their thorniness ;-)

G'day from Australia,

We have so much in common. We both blog, we both love photography and we're both drawn to roses.

I grow roses - it's summer here in Oz, but we have severe water restrictions because of the drought.
