Today I felt a little pang of sadness mixed with a grand happiness as I completed editing my manuscript. It is now out of my hands.
As I finished reading the last page I recalled a scene in Little Women in which Jo places a sprig of flowers into her string wrapped manuscript that she so excitedly completes. It seemed only fitting to honor a woman who so inspired me by placing my words within a streamer of silk ribbon (dyed in jacquard chestnut) and adorn it with a sprig of lavender.
While today I am done with the words that compose Tales of Adornment tomorrow I will sit down to write a couple of articles and then perhaps focus on my second book proposal.
