What happened to Feb?





Yellow Primroses




I'm trying not dwell on it but February went so fast I hardly remember it. Although I'm behind on a few commitments, my focus is on moving forward and I'm borrowing a few words from Emily Dickinson to help me through the first few days - "March is the month of expectations, the things we do not know, the Persons of Prognostication are coming now."


I selected the primrose for my February Journal Quilt. I've decided to be consistent with the font for the months and the background technique although I will vary the palette.

I made a couple of postcard while I was working out how to make the flowers and they are now on their way to Lynda and Mags.



I finished up Sarah's piece and got it in the mail yesterday. Her theme's focus was on women's work and I was also inspired by some paper collages she had done of a woman with a wand. It got me thinking that we all need to remember to take care of ourselves - put our tiaras firmly on our heads and put ourselves ahead of all the other roles we have!




(Thanks to those who have left comments or sent e-mails. Getting back to work and the computer after 10 days is a little overwhelming.)

ahhh, Emily Dickenson! My ultimate favorite poet.

Love February. and what a good idea to use your sample/practice flowers for postcards!!

I am doing monthly journal pages and don't have a clue for March. Perhaps, Emily will give me some ideas! haven't pulled her out in some time.

The primroses are lovely!

I blame February flying by on the fact that there are only 28 days!
