My Doodle, My mini work,Quilt Tank,Color Fix,Late Night Find

My Doodle is for the word prompt "Dream".
I dream all the time of making things,sewing things and surrounding myself in all the luscious colors that are around me.
I was listening to all the birds singing their Spring songs yesterday and my overactive imagination could see them busily making nests and helping Mother Nature paint her colors for the season.
Click on the Clara the Cow Icon that's on the right side and come join us in doodling.

I believe in this quote with all my heart. Why starve our creative hearts? I hope you do something everyday, even if it's a "little" something that makes you happy and fulfilled.
My Mini Work-Sunny Side Up
I call it Sunny side up because when you look at the center of the flower, it looks like a sunny side egg...and yep, there are 3 pieces to that flower.
I love to work in miniatures. I especially like to make a full size pattern I have designed for class or a book and make a mini of it. It's something I can carry around with me and put a few stitches in it every so often. I've been working on this little Floral Delights a long time now, mostly because I had it tucked away and forgot about it. With Spring here, I am renewed and ready to finish her up.
You can see the full size by clicking here. I have a couple of kits left too, just email me if your interested.

I 'm a day late with wishing you all a Happy Earth Day.
So...HAPPY EARTH DAY everyone!!!
Don't ya just love this quilted tank? On the earth day theme, I guess perhaps the quilt police (commandos) drive this tank for early morning quilt inspections?


I had to show you this cute little cheese grater...Isn't she the best?
I really want one!

Look closely. This quilt was made with Starbuck's coffee holders, cozies....whatever they are called!

My Late Night Find
Wow! I was looking at laser beam lights late one night and came across this. A rotary cutter with a laser beam??? Really??

As always, thank you so much for stopping in. I try to find some of the weird, interesting and beautiful things for you.

I can't tell you how much the color fixes just inspire me. I can't do anything with the inspiration at the moment however, there's just something truly moving about the use and understanding of color that just moves me.

Your doodles too...Love that you can draw and are willing to share this with us!


Linda M. Poole said...

Jaye-You don't have to thank is my pure pleasure...I am having a blast!

Teri-Isn't it amazing that colors can move us. Weirdly enough, if I don't get my color fix it affects my working day. I need it, it motivates me and it has a way of inspiring me and setting my mood for the day. Make sense?

Just stopped by to look around and say hi. I am KathyP's sister-in-law. :-) I'm not a quilter but I knit, do counted cross stitch, needlepoint and make weave-it squares. I've enjoyed reading your blog and I'll be back.

Love the doodle, and also the one from April 15th. This is my first time to your blog, so once I finish this entry, I'm going to check your archives for other doodles. BTW, your doodles belong on fabric. Unique, colorful, fresh and happy. You should really consider contacting some of the fabric manufacturing companies.

Oh my goodness; I just saw the tree in the Feb 22 post. Awesome. As I said, these designs belong on fabric. What great quilts could be made from fabric with these prints on it!

KathyP said...

Love your doodles! I agree, they
would look great as fabric.
