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.

Holiday Season: Baubles and Bangles, anyone?

We have got all kinds of interesting colors, and I can't wait to get them all hung up!

Recently, I have been taking a lot more pictures because I realized they are a great way to document life. They are also a nice visual compliment to all my writing, and I love looking out at the world a different way.

Me, the amateur photographer who can't really do anything fancy, is just learning how to do fun things to pictures using iPhoto.  The best part: it's really simple!

Happy Holiday season everyone! The lights came out this weekend at my house, and I thought I would post some pictures.



  1. The photos are really nice looking. W are putting up our christmas lights now, and they look pretty.

  2. Katie, I'm glad you like them! I have different pictures of Christmas lights on my homeschooling blog too ( in case you would like to see more.
