MEthod to the madness


I wasn’t sure that you could see it in last night’s picture, but there is an underlying structure to the explosion of flowers.  This is the same photo, with the heart vine outlined in Photoshop.

So my latest “thing” is words, text on my quilts, and I’ve been trying to think of how I could incorporate words on this one.  I’m going to be framing the center section somehow, and am contemplating something that would run along the bottom left edge.  All I could think of last night, though was

Bloom and Grow


Bloom where you are planted

And both of those are way trite and not what I’m looking for.

I thought about


which led me to

Hope Springs Eternal

cause I’m really freaking hoping that Spring will actually turn up soon.

But I’m not sure that’s right either.

I’ve even contemplated complete non sequiters.


The truth is out there


The wonderful thing about Tiggers

But I think those are more related to the cold-that-I-don’t-have than anything else.

Any ideas?
