As quilter and teacher of original beading techniques for quilters, I am always on the look out for inspiration for a new beading class or quilting designs.
Recently while teaching a The Big Sky Quilting Retreat in Billings Montana, I took a day trip to the quaint town of Red Lodge Montana. As always, I become just a bit lost driving even in a small town. When attempting to make a U turn on a side residential street, I saw this unusual use for skis and snapped some quick photos. Even in a town close to a skiing area, how does one accumulate so many skis?
Yesterday as I walked by my newest quilt in my dining room, I realized seeing the stripe pattern the fence of skis made, was truly my subliminal inspiration. What unusual experiences or encounters have inspired you?

Inky is so much fun to make, and easier than you think! To make sure you enjoy making Inky I have 11 videos, and written PDF text with step-by-step illustrations and photographs to guide you, and a kit for all the supplies you need for success.
Nancy (with a rr. hot email address) name was drawn out of the hat. Nancy’s comment:
I would not be able to do much sipping before I could do no more stitching! Like many of the comments above I have learned to make sure nothing is around to upset my machines or contaminate my work space. Now a holder for chocolate I could easily incorporate into my work space.
