Doodle Bird

How about a little sneak peak from my kitchen window that overlooks the studio.  This is the view standing at my kitchen sink.  The previous owner of the house needed more living space so he converted what we think was a carport into living space.  Kinda an odd layout but I like it, I can do dishes and do the quilt stare at the same time.  
Since I'm almost finished with the one on the frame I'm already thinking about the next one to go on the frame.   I picked out one a couple of weeks ago but it's not talking to me so I decided to pull them all out and see which one started talking first.
 By nature I'm drawn to the ones with brighter fabrics, but they aren't talking right now.  And the darker ones below have even less to say...sigh...seems I'm in a quilty funk.  I did some quilting design doodles yesterday hoping that it would help...NOPE.  Which one would you quilt next?   
Below is my doodle pad that I keep handy at all times.  This is where I write down ideas as they pop in my head.  When quilting I listen to the TV or radio.  Rarely do I watch the TV during the day, so the programming needs to be something I don't need to watch, like Unsolved Crimes, Political news and Cooking shows.  Lately it's been cooking shows, so I keep my doodle pad handy for recipes.  Last night I was sitting on the couch doing some hand stitching when my baby boy called, of course I had my doodle pad handy.  As you can see  by the Doodle bird we talked for quite awhile.  My baby boy has new job, a new apartment and loving life.  I've no idea where or how this bird fit into our conversation, it's what my doodle brain decided to draw.   Maybe it's the crazy hen pecking momma bird that wants to tell him how to live his life.   
So do you doodle?  A couple of years ago I found an interesting video by T.E.D on why doodling is good for everyone.  If you've never watched T.E.D videos they are addictive, well that's just my humble opinion.

  1. That's not doodling... that's beautiful! My doodles are NOTHING like yours. :) Do you paint or draw beyond doodling? You are one talented lady! As far as which quilt to work on next... is the quilt in the upper left corner of the darker quilts Christmassy? Maybe that would inspire you so complete it and you could use it soon. What lovely piles of quilts you have!

  3. Love your assortment of quilts. I see you have a snowball (upper right of the light quilts). Love the jazzy prints with white corners. I've thought about making a white snowball with colored corners. (Most people don't want a totally white quilt, I guess.) So many ideas...
    I think Ramona is right about the choice to work next... something you want to use.
    Thanks for sharing your dilemma.
    Hugs

  4. Oops! I forgot to mention Zentangle. It's a pattern type of doodle art. There are lots of blogs - see the bottom one on my sidebar, if you're interested. I really like the look of it, I have a shaky hand and just can't get it to look right.
    Hugs

  5. Doodle? No that is art! I love your quilts. I would pick the blue and pink gingham in the first photo! But, my goodness, you cannot go wrong. They are all so pretty.
