Gail Lois Jaffe Satuloff, in keeping with the theme, offered “Diamond Mosaic.” See more about this mystical artist and author at www.gailloisjaffe.com She offers this provocative discussion question for readers and group discussion: Think back to a time in your life during which you felt sad, depleted, or stagnant. Can you follow that period of your life to where it eventually led you, and see that the stagnant time was actually a gathering of your energy? What was being mined, or forged? What was the Diamond that emerged for you? Can you find a series of these patterns in your life? Have each participant in the study group share about an example of this in their life.

Quilts have become an old craft expression of the new art world. Some quilts I have created are watercolor (impressionistic pictures made of two-inch squares), ocean wave bed quilt, appliqué children’s quilts of dinosaurs and transportation, table runners, and Victorian and country samplers. I stopped quilting for a time when I moved to Florida. Then a move to the mountains returned me to quilting full-circle. This naturally led to sewing again. It’s the design and the fabrics I truly love!
The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, is an old way to create new, whimsical animals and objects from a square piece of paper! It brings patience, peace of mind and prosperity to those who practice it. It is said that if you make 1000 origami cranes, one wish will be granted.
