Sue's Blue Waterfall

Inspiration can come from anywhere. Often it comes from unexpected places. In my last post, I talked about my sister Sue's suggestion that I make a blue piece that looked like a waterfall. Her suggestion got me excited! Here is the result:

I named it "Sue's Blue Waterfall", for obvious reasons. Sue's suggestion also nudged me gently into a direction that has been on my list for awhile. Now this style has gone from "I'd like to explore that further" to the top of my list.

My sister Sue is inspirational in other ways, too. Last week brought me a very rewarding experience of how great it is to have adult sisters. And of how much I can learn from them, and from Sue in particular. Though we have made different choices in our lives, we have very similar values.

Our middle sister, Karen, lives in San Francisco, I'm in Colorado, Sue's in Connecticut. The three of us got together at Sue's place for her 50th birthday.

We have all been in the same place at the same time a few times in our adult lives, but always in a bigger group. This time it was just the 3 of us for Sue's birthday.

We had the most interesting conversations!

On her actual birthday, we baked a flourless chocolate cake, and pruned the rose bush. Well, Karen and Sue did the pruning. I took pictures.

How lucky I am!

Thank you, Sue for having a birthday so we could get together.

Thank you, Sue and Karen, for being my sisters!
