Hit That Blue Note

Doll by: Dionne Daniel

There honey, that’s the note.
Hit it hard ‘cause it’s the
exclamation point in my blues.

I want them to get it….
Don’t want no maybe…
They gotta feel it…

Play it child, just like the last
heartbreak that marched
right ‘cross your soul.

We all make mistakes…
It might be you or me
messin’ up in romance…

We got to make ‘em listen.
Love will come…love will go…
but we got to keep on lovin’…

There you go…I’m believin’ it now.
I hear your heart playin’ through those fingers…
You’ve turned those piano keys blue.

 Margaret Bednar, along  with a little help from her daughter and daughter's classmates has
offered unique inspiration for our creativity at Real Toad's Sunday Mini-Challenge.  The students were given an assignment to create dolls that reflect a part of who they are.  They spent close to six weeks hand stitching and creating the backdrops for their creative and gorgeous works of art.
