The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

First Snow

So, today was the first real snow around us, and that made me very very excited!! This poem is in honor of the magic of first snow. Hopefully we will get a white Christmas!

First Snow
by Claire

A dusting of powder
A fine sugar
Covering everything
Sprinkled atop houses and trees
Pines feel at home with the white dust
Floating in the air
Gently coating your face
Laughter is heard
Throughout the town
And hopes are raised
For a season of whiteness
