Some time ago I said, very emphatically, that I could never imagine designing a quilt based on a title - I saw it as an evil necessity for entering a quilt into a show or competition. But, as a side effect of doing the Studio Journal course, I've come to the conclusion that the very next thing I need to do, to develop what could be a series of quilts, is to think about the words behind the quilts and, wash my mouth out with soap and water, their titles. Lesson learned? Never say never, you just don't know what might happen.
And on the subject of words you may have come across Wordle it's been around and used in education for a while but has recently hit the stitching blog world. You type or copy and paste some text onto the webpage and it come up with a graphic showing the frequency of words used. I decided to copy the text from my most recent blog entries, and was amazed at how dominant the words work and time are - definitely a lesson to be learned here.
