Don't Look Down, Just Fly!

Don't Look Down, Just Fly!, Art Quilt, 5" x 7"
© 2008 Fannie Narte

This art quilt was made as a commissioned piece for the daughter/teacher of my client, who received it yesterday, and I'm glad she loves it.

I included my description of this piece for her to present to her daughter.

This was a fun commission, and I made a new friend. She was great to work with.

Just Fly!

Ahhh yes wonderful as always! You know that it is one of my favorites! I love everything about it right down to the great color.

I was reading your post below and it dawned on me.... this sounded familiar. A week ago another blogger spoke of Anne of Green Gables (which I guess I am the only one who hasn't seen it) Anywho, she was also talking about kindered spirits. As always I have been thinking.. I once had a kindred spirit when I was 14 we did everything together and I mean everything. Not a day that went by that we weren't together, even if we were doing nothing. The fairytale ended way too quick for me at 15 my bestfriend got mixed up in a bad crowd doing drugs, she became pregnant,moved, and overall lost her love of life which was what I loved most about her. Ever since I have been looking for a replacment (I use that word jokingly) but to no avail, I don't think anyone will ever 'get me' like she did. I tried finding her a few times but no luck. ... She is gone but she didn't leave me empty handed she left me to TONS of memories and the feeling of being a kindred spirit.

Thanks for the post :)
