My silence today was of a different nature but has a link It was a minute’s silence to remember those felled in the Peterloo massacre in Manchester, UK, 2 hundred years ago. Unusually for those times there were many women out protesting for better living conditions. There is a lot of information on the web about this. Rich embroidered banners were displayed at the gathering to commemorate their bravery. She’s going to turn into something beautiful, just like so many quilts in the making! Amen !! Nature is a good source when picking quilt colors, and this is a good example. I love your Silent Sunday although your images speak volumes about the beautiful world we share! Thank you! A sudden reminder of a learning moment … when we first moved to the west coast I had an herb garden outside the back door, under the kitchen window. The fennel came into full frondiness, and one day I noticed a bunch of THOSE caterpillars, except with green stripes mixed in as well, inhabiting the fronds. I freaked and squished a few … until a neighbour pointed out they were Black Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillars. EEEKKKK! One of the most beautiful of butterflies. I embrace them to this day. Lori, what does he eventually become? ❤️ Looks like he will be a beautiful Monarch🦋 “Just when the caterpillar thought its world was about to end, it turned into a beautiful butterfly”. I have a rubber stamp with that saying and I sometimes use it to send in a card to someone who is going through a rough patch at the time. (I remind myself of that often, I have a condition that gives constant pain and the HORRIBLE fatigue that comes along for the ride!!!!) Maggie….prayers for you and all in this group who suffer in silence or with noise! Using my sewing machine is very calming for me as well as Isaiah 26:3. I read this post this morning and after getting off computer, walked to back french doors windows to the deck to check on clouds. (Rain today?) There were monarch butterflies in the air over the plants that surround the deck!! Yep blessings all around today! Me hizo recordar la época de niña en la que criaba orugas en un frasco de encurtidos, les ponía cada día las hojas hasta verlas mariposas, era una niña tan feliz. Lori has despertado mi nostalgia. Un abrazo desde Argentina🌈🍀💝 Comments are closed.
