    Well, I'm glad I'm not alone! LOL When you reserve your room at the funny farm, you may as well reserve a whole block of rooms for the rest of us! But hey, it should be fun there ... think of all the time we'd have to ... QUILT!

    Maybe all the floor designers, tile designers and marble makers all get their inspiration from quilters, that's why we see patterns and ideas everywhere we go, they got them from us.....lol

    LOL I have done that so much since being on the Quilting Board. It's not just offices though it's everywhere clouds, colors, pictures. I'm seeing patterns everywhere.

    I has also happened to me. Went to a new dentist's office and saw quilt patterns in the furniture in the waiting are. One I really like was a Dresden Plate.

    Went with my DH to the doc yesterday, in the entry of the clinic was actual sections of quilt pieces in a glass frame on the wall as art work, I couldn't hardly get passed the entry way!!! I was holding up traffic! Still didn't get to see it all.

    Yep, my iPhone goes with me wherever I go. The largest medical clinic in the town that I live in has actual quilts all over the halls and in alot of the doctors' offices. My eye doctor always asks me what my current project is when I go to see him. (which I do frequently, because he treats me for episcleritis.)

    Absolutely! And then you start looking at the other patients to see which part of their clothing you could chop up and how you could incorporate drapes, nurses' uniforms and what have you. Makes the time fly - even if you look like the village idiot sitting there with the huge grin on your face and that far-away look in the eye. Little do they know!

    I've wondered about the sewing machines in jail myself. (not that I was contemplating anything illegal, mind you!)

    I have it on good authority that they don't allow sharp objects like pins, needles or scissors.
