In the last entry, I found myself thinking about alternate meanings for the word "leaves". Of course, I I used the plural, but that doesn't change what I was getting at. The first alternate meaning that came to me was pages of a book. Then came the phrase "to turn over a new leaf". The one that did not occur to me was a sheet of metal (think "gold leaf").
Interesting, isn't it? All three have applications in the art quilt currently underway, but the first one I thought of lingers in my imagination, fraught with possibilities.
The pages of books . . .
