I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Vince took this picture. He's got quite the eye, too. Nice sun and shadows, huh? Kinda ... quilty. Any of you writerly typs out there? Here's small challenge for you: write a poem or a piece of prose about this photo. It doesn't have to be long, nor does it have to be good : D. It just has to be. This is a good one for all of you who ever wanted to write and have never gotten around to it. You don't have to post what you write. You can email it to me, if you'd like or just keep it to yourself (you're on the honor system here). Leave a comment if you're taking part in this. You've got till the end of the week (22nd) to finish it.
Vince says I should offer a prize. How about this: A $5 gift certificate for a book from OUR used bookstore, AuthorOne. Winner will be chosen on random draw.
Here's what I've been doing (besides working, working, working): Echoes, echoes, echoes. Sorry for the fuzzy pics. This new BigFoot makes it much easier to follow lines, believe me. It's nice to be able to really see where I'm going. The problem with the smaller foots (feet?) is that the edge of the clear plastic is hard to see through and always seems to end right where I want to look. I love my new foot and I really, really hope it holds up.
So, in recap. The FMQ I feel somewhat able to do on a decent level: McTavishing, echoes, grids, posies (almost) and feathers (don't look at the one in these pics, this is a very old one that still had room around it to practice). What's next? More flowers. Dogwoods, I think.
There's still a couple days left to join the FMQ Challenge, so get signed up. It's easy to learn. All it takes is practice!
