As we are all pondering this year and looking forward to the next I thought you might like to read a little quote which I think is just lovely. It is from the main character Flavia, in Mary Nickson's latest book, called "Facing the music"
She is playing her flute with a group of schoolboys who are delighted with her playing. One small boy asks her how she gets it to sound like that and she replies.

'JUST LOTS AND LOTS OF BORING PRACTICE, I'M AFRAID", SAID FLAVIA LAUGHING, "BUT ALSO MAKING THE SOUND BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN HEAD BEFORE YOU EVEN PLAY A NOTE. IT ALL STARTS INSIDE YOU"

This is enchanting and I love the concept of making it beautiful inside of you first. It fits in with Sharon's "Slow cloth" and what creating, and making something is all about.

Good day, Judith! I too adore that quote. My only problem is that I have so many things inside me, it is hard to be still and let just one bubble up to the surface. My DH is taking me into Houston today so I can fabric shop which will be glorious. He drops me at the fabric shop and he goes to his coffee shop so we are both in an environment to our liking :-) Have a great weekend!
