Another inspirational event that precipitated my current project was my friend and work colleague David Babcock who recently knitted his way to a Guinness World Record whilst running the Kansas City Marathon. One thing he said to me and to some of his interviewers was that he wanted to encourage people to live creatively and to look to combine the things they enjoy in creative ways and have an impact on the community.
So, from David Babcock came my current challenge: to say thank you and I love you to 50 people who have befriended me, loved me, mentored me, and/or supported me. From Deb Rowden comes the second part of the challenge and that is to create a series of 50 small improvisationally designed, quilted art postcards to mail out to the aforementioned 50 people.
Thinking this over, I decided that since there was a series of cards, and each one is unique, the recipients of these cards might enjoy seeing the other cards and learning the back story of their card. It's nice to know you are special and it's also nice to know that you belong to a group.
