    I had to laugh at myself and share. I just scanned a cookie so that I could use the pattern on it for quilt stitching. Inspiration comes in all forms. [img]http://bestsmileys.com/lol/12.gif[/img]

    This past Sunday, I was getting quilting designs from the stained glass windows in my church. Personally, I am very blessed to live in the country and draw much inspiration from nature including my two furry babies.

    I love to look at coloring books to come up with applique quilt patterns.

    Just about anything. Video games, books, floor tiles, other quilts, music, paint chips, etc.

    God first gave me the desire after I retired, and then my mom, and since I have been on this board I get inspired every day.
