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.

White fabric covers the grass. Pure as a wedding dress, light as the downy feather of a baby bird.
Wet and crisp as a juicy apple. Sifting over the orange of our pumpkins. Dripping, melted from the roof.
Before its time, like jingle bells in September, flip-flops in January.
Snow in October? Can it be?
Methinks it is a little early...


  1. This is lovely and whimsical and makes me definately feel like I am there in the snow - it paints a picture. ( I don't understand "flip flops in January" though. What did you mean?)

  2. I actually live in a part of the world where winter is from December to March...And you can't where flip-flops in winter
