Strange beginnings

Have you ever been inspired to make a quilt because of a song?  

This is the beginning of the "Wonky Donkey" Quilt... 
donkeys and boots!

My friend Nicki gave us the Wonky Donkey book for Christmas a few years ago and introduced me to this crazy song. 

Then my friend Barb found a quilt pattern of the same name, and just had to buy it, so a new quilt project was born!  I hope to find a couple of "go with" fabrics from the stash and cut up the fabric to sew into a Wonky Donkey quilt at retreat in February.
Hop over to the youtube video and listen to the song and see if you are inspired to start a Wonky Donkey quilt?!?'s a "brain worm" song... you'll be singing it all day long!

Sometimes new things come together in life in such a creative and bizarre way. 

Maybe this will be the theme of 2013!?!

Hee Haw!

I know a little boy that will have a great laugh at the Wonky Donkey. He has a donkey, Gumby.
The donkey and boots fabric has been out for about a year, so finding it might have its difficulties.
What a good laugh to start the day!
