Today is for the color blue

I went to pick a fig or two this morning and saw a few speckles on the ground and wondered at the idea that it had rained a little in the night–it was not in the forecast.

And then about halfway to the tree it got through to me that the rain was getting through to me–it not only wasn’t done, it was just getting started. I got my fruit for breakfast, hurried back inside, and found myself not soaked but wet and cold enough that I was definitely changing out of that.

It didn’t make it to even a hundredth of an inch.

But the air cleared up and the sky turned a forgotten blue. We can breathe again.

Meantime, after wanting to for a long time I bought a silk comforter six months ago and after watching this video of mulberry leaf to finished quilt, am utterly in awe of those who created it.

Wonderful video. I would love to have a silk comforter or throw. My family had one, but it went to my younger brother … who lives in Southern California!

I’ll bet yours feels heavenly.

Maybe someday I can afford the expense. For now, Company Store and IKEA will have to do, with sheets from LL Bean.

I have a down duvet that is more than 20 years old. I just love it. So light but so warm. Unfortunately I am at the age where I don’t need that much warmth. So I have it tucked away for the time when I start to feel cold again, maybe another 10 or 20 years??

I love the idea of silk but I wonder if it would also be too warm for me.

I hope you enjoy yours. The video is amazing. So much work!

Ps. The option to save my info for the next time I comment doesn’t seem to be working?

So glad you got that bit of rain, and so hoping that it drifts our way. For the first time in a week we can see across the little valley behind our house and see the hill on the other side, but a little wash of the air would be wonderful!

I love feel of my silk quilt. However, it cannot be cleaned. No washing, or dry cleaning. A freind washed mine and the silk clumped up and try as I might I cannot get it to fluff out again. The quilt is still useful, but has cold spots. I hope yours is a better design.
