Inspiring Tuesday

Emily hasn't been her usual cheerful self lately, although she has been laying extra-close to me (if that's possible.)  It has been an inspiring time for me and this little bit of snow lately has really lifted my spirit too.  I have been thinking of a new project and while looking through some old photo albulms with photos of Emily, as well as rubbing her soft fur, thought of an idea for an art quilt.  I liked this photo because of the great shape of Emily, it will be challenging and interesting and I think I can pull it off.  These are some of the materials I picked out, although now I'm thinking I need more colors.  So I will keep drawing, planning, cutting, sewing and stuffing and with Emily's help, will be a fun art quilt and a simple joy.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.  ~ Aristotle


  1. Yes, I love those real quilts. Can't wait to see your results.

  2. Looks like a neat project. Give Emily some hugs for me.

  3. What a wonderful idea and that should keep you busy for quite a while! Quilts are one of my favorite things and I have several. So warm and cozy. Would love to see it when it's finished.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Emily and I appreciate it...meow! Smile today. :)
