Q is for Quill

Who needs a ball point pen when you've got a pigeon feather and an ink pad?

To my knowledge, BB has never seen a quill or known that feathers used to be used for writing. She took it upon herself to combine one of her little stamp pads with the feather she found...

"Mom, I drew you a butterfly!"

Here's a close-up:

Actually, she'd drawn the butterfly in pencil first, then traced over it with ink. Purple, because she knows that's my favorite color!

Clever girl! She's becoming quite the artist. Love it!

thanks, Cathy! The funny thing was that it was entirely her idea! I'm still wondering if she might have seen a quill in a book somewhere or if she had tapped into some collective unconsciousness to get the notion. whatever, she sure had fun with it!
