While going through my pictures, I came across this one of a wall hanging I had made many years ago. The rose buds are folded triangles which gives the piece some dimension. 

I never really cared for wall hangings, mainly because I never had a place to put them but they look so nice in other people's homes.  I put this one up as a display in my shop and it finally sold.

So happy Valentines day to everyone, may your heart be filled with love and your soup pot be filled with fresh veggies.

Where Does Your Inspiration Come From

     After a light show, and after the sun burned through the clouds, I took a walk to our pond.
The quietness and stillness allows me to "ponder" ( pun intended ) about my next quilt or what I am going to plant in the garden, or about any thing else.
      I get inspired from the colors of nature and the sounds or lack of them. I'm reminded of Psm.46:10  Be still and know that I am God.

On the banks of the pond we have black berries, raspberries, huckleberries and a large mulberry tree, I always remember the song we sang in grade school.  "Here we go round the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush." Wait, this is a tree not a bush. Mulberries make the best jam, you just have to make sure you get there before the birds do. I use a box of store brand sure gel and follow the directions on the insert.  So where do you get inspired to make your next masterpiece or cook up a yummy something from what nature provides.  Happy Quilting and Healthy Eating.
