Wordless Wednesday: V is for Vines






U is for Unicorn Quilt Patterns


What could be better than a unicorn quilt? Two of my favorite things combined. A search on Etsy yielded these patterns. Most of these are for paper piecing. Make a single block for a wall hanging or pillow cover, or make several and add borders for a larger quilt. Click the link under each illustration for more information.

Which is your favorite? Mine is the small unicorn head, but I’m not skilled enough to make that one. I’m tempted to try the pillowcase, though I’d make the mane in gray and cream rather than purples for a more realistic effect. I prefer real unicorns, with split hooves and goatees, rather than the fake ones that look like horses with a horn stuck on their foreheads.

a circle can’t have corners

in a forgotten corner she sits invisible
observing the popular girls
talking laughing
their circle an impenetrable wall
keeping her out uninvited

in first grade they were all friends
in seventh they are not
she is excluded

NaPoWriMo Day 21


Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write a poem that plays with the myth of Narcissus.

I hear those blasted pipes, pipes
I turn and see Pan, Pan
With his horny head, head
And his hairy legs, legs
With their cloven hooves, hooves
Grotesque, tesque

I turn away and gaze at my love, love
His handsome face mirrored in the water, ter
Why don’t you return my feelings, lings
Your eyes seek only your own face, face
Could it be there’s nothing there, there
Just a shallow reflection, tion

My offering for this week’s Diva Challenge using the two patterns Shattuck and Tripoli. I have an in-progress photo, because I’m participating in The 100 Day Project by tangling for 15 minutes every day (okay, some days) with the Zentangle All Around Facebook group.
