Tickle tickle.....birds of a FEATHER....light as a FEATHER....ruffled FEATHERS...

Each Tuesday at work we have staff meeting and learn about different things from reading a map, waving to the ranchers when they pass us by on the dirt road, cleaning bug bites and what to do if encountering a rattlesnake....

This past Tuesday I was in a group of peers and we were given a peacock feather by the presenter.  We were assigned to think up a therapeutic group that we could teach to our students and clients....

Well you can guess what came to mind when I saw and heard FEATHER.....


Little pinks wispy feathers.....
While quilting the top section of rabbits and grass....couldn't help but recant Easter memories and soon I thought of the "worm" as the trail for Peter Cotton tail and all of the little Easter eggs he was dropping along the way.



Closeup of my back with the feathers and pebbling...Ever done this, "Noah, I just need to quilt one more area and then I will shower and we can head out for our day..." 

"Mom, you said just one more section....."

What is your thought for this lovely THURSDAY?

My thought is that when you ALLOW life to happen and not frantically spin to control it, wonderful things happen...like peacock feathers..who knew? :) Love your quilting!
