Three Favorite Quotes~Day 2

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
Henry David Thoreau

Each morning, I start by reading books, poems, articles, or quotes about life’s journey. Each week, I choose one quote or thought to write in my journal and calendar. This quote becomes my focus for the week.
I frequently refer to Thoreau for inspiration. This is one of my favorite Thoreau quotes. I especially like the reminder to “find your eternity in each moment”.

My sister likes to take walks with her dog, so I chose one of my favorite quotes for this block:
An earlymorning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” – Henry David Thoreau
I made an applique of her dog. The tree has small yo-yos.
On the second block, I included words our mother always used to tell us: Use your God-given talents.
We would always joke about it, but I guess mom had some good advice after all.
I found a book charm and covered it with a fabric photo of one of my sister’s books from her┬áPig in a Wig series of five books.
My sister’s name is Emma, but we call her M.
I just noticed that the M charm is twisted in the photo.


Tomorrow, I will make a simple front and back cover.
Then, I will try to put it all together.
