Doodling and Beyond

Doodling

Last week, I was strolling the aisles of my local JoAnn’s Fabric Store with a 40% coupon burning a hole in my pocket, when I spied this book on doodling.  Who knew one could write a book about doodling?

As you know, I am a big proponent of doodling.  (Read posts HERE and HERE).

Not only does it make you smarter (Read more HERE), doodling is a great way to practice free motion and long arm quilting.

Of course, the best way to doodle is on fabric…

But if you don’t sew, or if you don’t have time to sit down at your sewing machine…

Then the next best thing is doodling the old-fashioned way.  If you are looking for a little inspiration, check out Stephanie Corfee’s Book, Creative Doodling and Beyond at your local store.  (Here’s a link on Amazon.)  I’m going to doodle a little sunshine–it did stop snowing yesterday and today it is pouring rain!

Next week:  Design tips, The Wave free motion quilting tutorial…and so much more!

May Day Snow

If it weren’t May, I would have been happy to step outside yesterday and find a beautiful coat of snow on all the trees…

The blue sky was gorgeous–looks like spring light…

The problem is, I’d rather be at the garden center buying annuals, not salt for my driveway!

May Snow Storm

Please send warm wishes our way again.  It is snowing as I write this morning, May 3, 2013…

Calgon, take me away!
