"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Mid-Week Colour

When we built the local library--and I say "we" with meaning, as the Chap and I were major donors as well as active on the Building Committee--we included plenty of wall space for art exhibits. The current exhibit features a local quilt maker and on Sunday I had a chance to take photographs of her hand-stitched quilts.

This one is by far my favourite.

Close-up of the central motif.

A more vibrant and non-traditional pattern.

I like this flower basket, too. The roses are very well done.

Yesterday was a marathon of meetings--from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. I had 1 legislative, 3 diocesan, 1 music lesson, 1 other. All but one were very positive and pleasant and informative.

It's back to the Big Lake for me and the girls at some point today. After my manic Tuesday, I'll be glad of the peace and quiet and solitude!
