It doesn't have to be a doodle, it can be anything you desire, ATC's, poetry, a scribble, a quilt....anything goes! Click on Clara the Cow Icon on the right side and see what it's all about!

Your Quote for Today
If you haven't been told lately that what you create is great, well.....then I will tell you. Everything you do, be it small or did a great job! And I, as a creative person, thank you for creating too. We make the world a more colorful and interesting place to live. It takes energy to create and I acknowledge that in you. Bravo to you!!!
So exactly what are you doing with "your" buttons? I believe that most quilters have a large button supply in tins, boxes or jars.....but what are we doing with them and why are we collecting them. Let's pull those buttons out and do things with them. If you are looking for ideas, just check out some of these awesome ideas and let them be a starting point of inspiration for you

I am loving the idea of taking my buttons and creating a small patchwork quilt with them. I think I will glue my buttons to a velvet wrapped piece of cardboard.
BUT....look at these....wonderful, huh?

I can't even imagine spending all these hours,days,weeks doing this, but I do appreciate the person who thought of this and put their idea into fruition! I wish I could see it in person!!!

These are so fun to look at and I bet a real blast to make. How could you not be happy after making these?
I think this is so beautiful that I could see myself making one of these for Christmas as a center piece. I think I am finally inspired to use a multitude of my buttons. Why would I just want to keep collecting them and not make anything?

I wonder if she has any cats? Fun purse, but even a more fun toy for the kitties!

I am now convinced that I love my buttons even more now. I want to and will make the flower pot. I am totally inspired!
Zoie, the Sailor Girl
As you know, my little quilting assistant Zoie does insist part of the time to be included here. She is already 7 1/2 months old....can you believe it? She went on the water for the first time and took quite well to it. In about a whole five minutes after we launched, she jumped into the water.


I just love this toaster. I love it so much that I can see me eating more carbs than I should....I LOVE toasted English Muffins!

Hmmmm...great way to recycle all that unwanted fabric?
Remember this decade?

They actually make this little tool to help you with your color selections here to check it out.


So, another blog written for you with joy! I hope you enjoyed your time here. Let me know what inspires you! Leave a comment, I love to read them.
Many thanks,
