In the Studio

The reveal for the first challenge on Three Creative Studios is Monday. These two images are of sections of my piece. The challenge word is Puzzle.

I'll provide the details about this piece on Monday.

I will say though that working on this piece was interesting in that it decided how it wanted to be created; I followed along even though I had a completely different idea in mind. On Jan. 21st I blogged about an early version of this challenge piece.
Quote: This was posted on a friend's blog after a family member took her own life. A teenager who decided that life was too difficult. I've read this quote before but the book isn't cited amongst Anne Lamott's quotes from her books. 
"You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp."

The color and texture in your quilt is tantalizing. I'm looking forward to seeing the entire piece.
So heart breaking to hear of someone, especially a teenager, so destraught to take own life.
The quote is perfect and right on.
