I chose the newborn for my Haiku. Spending so much time at the hospital with my Mom I have witnessed so many new borns and hope they all have a rich full life.

behold your journey
embrace enjoy entirely
beloved little one

I chose a piece of my snow dyed fabric, love the way it portrays the rays of sunshine, and all the wonderful colors of our world with some turbulence a long the way. I free cut the silhouette from a rough sketch  and added some hand stitching.

This is lovely! Your choice of fabric with silhouettes is perfect. You've taken what all mothers feel and expressed it with grace and simplicity. Very nice.

Your haiku is lovely. I've been listening to the novel The Stone Diaries this week and it's really good, but you summed up the whole book in your haiku and your quilt. Really nice.
