Would you...

Funny how one thing can lead to another.
This little quilt I made yesterday, after...













I first found a small greenish scrap, not knowing
what to do with it, but thinking I might want to
do something with it... - then I found a single
hand written "would" - which made me think of Johnny
Cash´s "Would you lay with me in a field of stone..."













As the greenish scrap resembles a sprout and
not a stone, things developed towards "Would you
grow with me..." - it´s a simple thing, but nice
I think - a simple pleasure...













This one and a few other things will be in the shop
later...














"Would you lay with me in a field of stone
If my needs were strong would you lay with me
Should my lips grow dry would you wet them dear
In the midnight hour if my lips were dry

Would you go away to another land
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand
Wipe the blood away from my dying hand
If I gave myself to you

Would you bathe with me in the stream of life
When the moon is full would you bathe with me

Will you still love me when I'm down and out
In my time of trials will you stand by me

Would you go away to another land
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand
Wipe the blood away from my dying hand
If I gave myself to you

Would you lay with me in a field of stone
If my needs were strong would you lay with me"

(Johnny Cash)

It is amazing how the most unexpected little things can inspire
us. That is how it happens for me too. The little green sprout is perfect and the stitching is beautiful. Love the lamb and moon face too!

"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it..." (Goethe)

the only poetry I read these days is here... your selections are wonderful. Like the stitched 'grow' in that spring green thread.
