Green/Inspire Me Thursday

This week's topic is green on Inspire Me Thursday. Since green is my favorite color I wanted to participate and chose my green dragonflies mini quilt(or my vague interpretation of a mini quilt anyway). Green always reminds me of new beginnings and I have to be honest when I read the topic I immediately saw Kermit singing it's not easy being green.

I like to use green in my work. On my blog you will see many green pieces, green trees, green hands, green turtles, green crosses, green knit bags. Everytime I want to renew myself or bring myself peace with my work I make something green. When I was young my brother died and for my entire life my mother wore black and I somehow followed suit(although that was probably an issue with my weight more then my grief). But when I moved to this wonderful place in upstate NY which probably is the personification of green I started finding myself and renewing myself in green, with green. When I used to make cross stitch pillows for weddings if I didn't know the color of the bridal party I would make them green because of new beginnings. Green is a neutral color which serves the same purpose as black only much brighter and lighter. I still haven't bought myself a lovely green pantsuit(is there such a thing as a lovely green pantsuit anyway) but I do like to put little glimmers of green and color in my wardrobe.

So the next time you see the beautiful green growth of grass or the green buds on a tree, or a green project that I am working on think renewal and transformation. Green comes along and takes the ugly brown ground and makes it a lovely shade of green. It's a new beginning. A rebirth. And as Kermit would say it's not easy being green but it makes life a lot more wonderful with the green there is in the world.

Keep stitching.

Hi Pink! That blurry crappy picture is the best I can do for that one. I think it's destined to reside in my house(which is good cos it took a really long time to make it).

Just in case wasn't being snarky just honest about the blurry crappy picture. That was the best of the lot. And it's green!

Love your thoughts about green. Whenever I think about green I think of Ireland. Don't ask me why because I have no idea.

In a book I have the dragonfly is a being of the wind of change, the one who gives messages of wisdom from the world of the elements.
That fits perfectly with your green, what a "coincidence".

Have a great weekend.

Your green dragonfly quilt is lovely. I am moved by your thoughts on green as a rebirth or renewal. So true. Made me think that I can't wait for spring to really get here. I was thinking yesterday that the grass hasn't turned green yet and none of the trees have budded out yet. The only green I have in my garden so far are som tulip shoots that are doing their best to lighten the mood and say spring is here.
Thanks for you wonderful thoughts they have inspired me.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
