It is a very good quote. I love your erosion bundle. I like the firey red of the sun, so fitting for this longest of daylight days.

Oh my, Deborah, this piece says summer everywhere I look! I love your work so much, and now I wonder -- what do you do with all your pieces? Have you found a way to display them all, or do you just keep them to enjoy when you take them out? There have to be dozens and dozens of these little treasures!

I do like your quote, if only we could all follow its sentiment life would be much more productive.

Love that saying too. Unfortunately, I'm one who worries and believes that worry changes events! Love the quilted piece with the great embellishments.

What a great quote! It reminds me of a piece of Buddhist wisdom:
"If your disease can be cured,
it is no use complaining.
And if there is no cure for it,
complaining doesn't help either."
(Shantideva)
