This morning I finished quilting my second tree on my landscape quilt
Someone asked where I get inspiration. Well it is mainly from my surroundings. I love going out and taking photos of the area I live in for future use on a quilt. I keep a folder of these photos for later use.
The red in this landscape quilt came from heading out to my mom's to cut greens and red twig dogwoods for my winter pots at home.
I loved how the red just pops in the winter landscape and had to add it in this quilt. I fill two pots in front and one big one in the back. The birds love perching in them and I will keep them until spring.
My telephone pole santa is also in place although he will not appear on this quilt. I bought him 20 years ago! He is all handcarved and weighs a ton but I love him and haul him from my attic every year.
This morning Watson was no where to be found. I checked his favorite places and even looked in the mixing bowl which he sometimes curls up in, Then I found him.
Seems he has decided to sleep in the guest room in the crib I have set up for Clayton. Hmmmmm
Hope this is not going to be his new spot or I will be washing bedding before babies come for the day. It is cute though.
