Get out the crayons!

Do you like to color?  I have always loved to color - I remember having those great big posters that were a huge coloring page - did you have those?  I wish I knew where mine were...one had butterflies and flowers all over it.  So fun! I, for one, am thrilled that adult coloring books are now "the thing"!  My sister-in-law gave me one for Christmas, and my friend, Nancy gave me one for my birthday - with a big package of markers.  Amazing!  I love the look of the rainbow of markers.  Or a big box of new crayons...so pretty!  Oh....another thing I have always loved is the big wall of towels in large department stores.  I'm just drawn to that array of gorgeous colors!  Ok...back to what I was really going to post about (but think of me the next time you look at one of those pretty towel walls!).

Have you seen the quilting of Karen at Redbird Quilt Co.?  She does the most amazing machine quilting on her home machine - it really blows my mind. Last year she started posting pictures of her doodles - which are also just amazing to me.  Wow - if only I could doodle like that!  Anyway...she published a book of her doodles for us to color!  SO FUN!!!  Of course, I had to order myself one!  Here is the cover...
Cool, huh?  The whole book is really fun - I can't wait to break out the crayons.  Or should I use the markers? Or maybe colored pencils?  Maybe I'll just go to the store and stare at the towel wall...
