If you read my Big 7-0 blog, you'll know that I've fallen in love with an old black duck, a sad fellow [maybe an old lady -- what do I know?] that I see on my walks. So this journal quilt is partly for Duckie. The quilt itself was closer to 10x13 than 9x12 so it wouldn't all print on the photocopy. This journal quilt is especially personal as it contains both the duck and the prayer flags on the dead tree. See my my post from a year ago So this is a very personal journal quilt. The pebble and sea shells are just extra. I have an intense relationship with the beach all summmer, and it's extending into the fall..
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
