And so the first week (half-week, really) of back-to-school draws to a successful close. I need to spend some time thinking about what I want to learn this year, what goals I have -- I know my wish would be to hang on to this feeling of freshness and possibility and energy. For all of us.
After creating this post, I'm going to cut out the pieces I need to complete a bed-sized quilt for Dean that I started, of course, years ago but never finished. Although I'd officially had other projects ahead of this one in my queue, I am inspired by Dean's love for the small quilt I just finished and bequeathed to him. He thinks it's beautiful, he loves holding it and wrapping his stuffed animals up in it, he plans eventually to hang it up in his room -- how can I not forge ahead with a quilt he can sleep under? And I never have finished a bed-sized quilt before so it is about time.
