We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic.
Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings,
different hopes, different dreams.
The wave of the future
is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed
but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.
-John F. Kennedy

What do you do when inspiration strikes?
Write the idea in one of your journals?
STOP everything and go with it? I do...sometimes...today =)
I was searching through my fabric bins for something that looked distinctively masculine (to make a pillow for a bachelor friend of my daughters!) I picked up this beautiful piece of dyed fabric sent as a thank you gift when I purchased a book from Laura Wasilowski. Simply Gorgeous! I've been saving it for something special, so I set it aside...as I continued searching I came across this swatch if peacock fabric I forgot I had! Then I remembered the peacock feathers I ordered online to make earrings for my daughter (she has a thing about peacocks...I might have to post a picture of her peacock feather tattoo...another time!) Anyway, the wheels in my brain began turning and I had to run around collecting this all together...and voici--here it is! I think it will make a fabulous mixed media art quilt...ooooh, when can I begin to work on it...just wanted to share...now I really plan to eat breakfast and get busy on my to-do list =)
