“Let us to go for a walk in the park”, she said.
“We will take some bread for the ducks
And jam jars to catch fishes in
And, maybe, a skipping rope…”
“The blackbird is sure to be singing,” she said,
“And children will be flying kites,
Making castles in the sandpit,
And throwing balls for their dogs”.
“You can watch the butterflies dancing,” she said.
And I’ll see how high I can swing…
Then, perhaps, we will buy ice creams
To eat on the bus back home”.
This quarter's theme was NOT a walk in the park for me so I'm very much looking forward to seeing the other quilts. I'm not really fond of parks so I struggled for a long time to find anything I could make with enthusiasm. Then I remembered how, when my brothers and I were very young (pre-school), our local park seemed so exciting with the swings and slides and river and sand pit and we used to beg my mum to take us there. I think, if I'd decided on a plan sooner, I may have been able to make a nicer quilt inspired by this memory but finished is better than perfect!
I hope everyone else has enjoyed this theme and I'm looking forward to visiting you all later today :)
