Scraps of fabric
sewn together
threads hanging
lots of squares.

Arrange the pieces
to make a pattern.
a beautiful work of art
is in process.

Each little scrap
contributes to
the unique design.

The hard work
of snipping and sewing
arranging and planning
comes together

All the pieces of my life
Fit together
To make this
Patchwork quilt.
