Let's Let Inspiration Take Us on a NEW Year's Journey of great ART!

Above is a rooster photo I took of one of Ruth McDowell's roosters she sells. My friend has bought at least two of the chickens and a fabulous banana quilt also-wonderful in every way.
 My cousin sent me this photo of these leaves which are quite wonderful and creative
Below is a sculpture by a guy who did sculptures for the Michigan airport...he does fabulous stuff!
Color and buildings and fun
I love anything with sunflowers don't you?
Below is my friend Mary's quilt about making delicious coffee cakes (100 of them) on December 11th every year! Quite wonderful and her 90+ Mother helps her...wonderful story and quilt too!
My cousin took a photo of this quilt below and sent it to me. It is wonderful and so many ideas with older pieces could be done this same way-clean out those drawers!
Houses don't have to have windows on them, they can have people or flowers ot the moon or what idea does your inner artist give you?
Kites in quilts are outstanding!
Saw this idea and it was so cute, I had to share it.........
A quilt begun in one of my workshops- come to Post Falls Idaho in June and see what we can do-I have new tricks up my sleeve for awesome results!
I have had the poster below on my blogs before because it makes me laugh out loud everytime I read it. Whoever did this has my sense of humor. So funny.
Happy New Year Dear Friend!
