#SOL20: A Milestone





Revise the Plan


Check the Plan




Sound familiar?

It was birthday time on Sunday. Back on Mothers’ Day when the story began. The big 5. And the big reveal.

In the beginning . . .

It began with a panel. Then a bigger envisionment and new learning.

Several artists represented . . .

Envisioning a goal, gathering resources, making a plan, checking in along the way and my grandson now has a glow in the dark dinosaur quilt.

In the midst of the world chaos I was able to learn a new skill and create some beauty.

What have you created?

What will you create?

What are you learning?

Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. That is just beautiful, Fran! I’m sure your grandson loved it! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Congratulations, Fran. I am sure your grandson will enjoy the quilt and treasure it for many years. I know the time and work that goes into creating one of these works of art.

  3. I love it!! So happy you shared the process and the product. Did he love it? I have spent a lot of time creating a virtual bookroom – it is has been a lot of fun and I learned a lot. I am also creating a photo letterbox for my son and am using some new crafting techniques. I will share it when it’s done.
