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.

Picture Story: A Night of Snow

Once on an October night
The weather put on a show of might

We awoke to wind and snow
Where oh where did autumn go?

The morning came, we rushed outside
Laughing, we started to slip and slide

The camera flashed and captured trees
That looked a little weak at the knees
The scoreboard stood, I watched and grinned
Winter came quickly to snag the win

With Halloween but a night away
What were we to do today?

My brothers did just what they could
Playing and fighting with snow and wood

The trees were chilled, and so were we
We ran through fields, happy and free

Until it was time to go inside
Where it was time for our mother to chide

The day was passed in snowy fun
Yet the snowstorm had us all stunned

The day before Halloween came snow
We wanted it gone, it had nowhere to go


  1. This is lovely! I smiled the whole time I was reading it. But, I hope you have warmer weather for Halloween!! Great pictures...we don't see snow much here in Florida :)

  2. Well, lucky you! I have no power right now...and it is really cold!

  3. Ugh! That's no fun at all! Keep warm and I hope you get power back asap!!!
