I also worked on my Valentine top, and finished the top Friday. Time to quilt it now!
It's fun to use my turning cutting board, and the templates, to cut up scraps making order from chaos.
It's going to be fun to see these in all the colors of the rainbow. Merging, swirling together, blending side by side.
I find myself getting precious about my scraps... "no this one is too good for this" Please stop me if I do that again! Use the fun stuff, the good stuff!
For the love theme...
two sweet videos of animals adopting other species...
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
They rely on each other for emotional support. We all need love.
Animals (including human animals) can fight and they can love.
Problems develop when one perceives a threat to resources, although perception can be off base. Haven't you ever unknowingly pre-judged someone later finding out you were wrong, there was no threat?
Have you ever talked to someone quite different from you and found out how much you have in common? I remember sitting on a bench in DuPont Circle when a group of tall boys wearing drooping jeans joined us. It was unnerving as we didn't know them, and one hears stories of danger in big cities, and let's face it, we're much older than them. I started a conversation, as I do, and by the end of the interaction, most had wandered off, but one boy and I had the best talk about writing and novels. I can still see the glow in his eyes now, years later, as he shared that he wanted to be a great novelist. He was about 19, living in a poor neighborhood apt, making his way in the big city, but he had dreams few people asked him about.
I admire humans who understand love is more rewarding than war.
