My First Poem

Since Mary Fons was our official Chicago-tour-guide in March -- I am even more in love with this, my first poem.  THANKS, Mary...

I interviewed Mary Fons last year for Inspired To Sew magazine.  So I became a huge fan and love following her blog. Her writing is just as much fun as her quilting.

Recently, she wrote about a children's book with the A is for Apple, B is for Boy letters-of-the-alphabet format. She decided to write a poem using that form, and I loved it. Her poem was called She Money: Here's the link:  recent post called She Money.

It seems so simple, but it is harder than you think...
