Intro to my blog

Today I start a blog for the very first time. I chose the name because in just over a month I will travel to Northern Iraq with Christian Peacemaker Teams for the first time. I tried to think of a name for this blog. An acquaintance from my yoga class told of a conference she had recently attended and gave us this quote from the speaker, Chris Summerville. This struck me as just the name for my blog. I am going to N Iraq with CPT because I believe in nonviolence and peace. I am going to walk alongside people who want peace. I am feeling a little nervous about this but I must  go in peace and not let myself fall to pieces (at least not very often). Finally, this is an appropriate title for me because I am a quilter. I work with pieces of fabric and really like to tell stories with my quilts.
