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.

Five Sentence Fiction: Nineteen

One and two together make a pair, though seven and eight are going strong. Sixteen and eighteen are the gossiping ladies, eating little tea cakes and drinking English blend. Ten stands, broad shouldered and aloof, with secret eyes for petite four. Number eleven has been dieting of late, some new fangled appetite for fractions, and it is really paying off as far as twelve is concerned. Nineteen is the widow, weeping and sighing, and watching her family grow beneath her with the pride of motherhood fresh in her eyes.

Well, that was a really odd piece. Not at all sure where I came up with that.



  1. This is such a creative take on the prompt! In such a short span you make each character clear and alive. Clever :)

  2. I really liked this piece! Very creative :)

  3. Had to read it twice to properly pull in all the amazing imagery and your wonderful writing style. Really really enjoyed this piece! Jo-Anne
