Sunday Quilt Inspiration: R A I N

Yes, it's raining today.  And on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday and for the rest of the week it will be cloudy and gloomy. 

But my week will be BUSY.  Convention kind of busy.  Pack about 45 or so teens on a school bus and drive them all to a convention of about 5,600 more teens and you'll have my week.  So rain?  That's a little thing.

"listen to the rhythm of the falling rain"  First line of my favorite pop song when I was a kid.

I love the gray, gloomy, washed-out feel of a rainy day.  It's perfect for reading, napping, quilting, and resting. Especially resting.

I hear you, Rain  You are so lovely and soft.  I almost didn't notice that you had crept in; I'm so glad you did.  Your rhythms soothe and calm me.  I am thankful for your sounds, musical, but free from thought.  Fall down on me.  Fall down  On me

I LOVE this picture!  The raindrops, the movement, the delicate china, the greens....lovely

RAIN! right now it's like this, I love it the most most most (sun is totally overrated;)  #water can you hear the rain drops?

Rain brings with it some gray, but that doesn't mean that there can't be a hint of color.

This photo is SO beyond beautiful! I love it with 1,000 hearts! It's a hummingbird caught in the middle of it's rain dance! Thank you, Lara! Merci! Merci! :)

Estas detrás de este fino cristal pero aun así no puedo verte, la sutil lluvia que moja los suelos de esta ciudad fantasma me impiden ver el reflejo de tus ojos detrás del ligero cristal...

Who's afraid of a little rain?????

So what to be inspired by other than some gray quilts on such a day as this?
