Josh's Quilt and Pinterest

Have you ever had great plans and just couldn't get to them?  It's beginning to annoy me to no end.  I finally found fabric and a design that I'm really happy with, and I can't seem to get into the studio.  Isn't that always the way?  

Since tomorrow is one of the days when I'll get home at a decent time, I'm determined that I absolutely will get into the studio.  If I can find the energy to work a couple of hours after work, I may be able to load Josh's quilt onto the long arm Saturday.  I really want to finish the quilt and get it to Angie in the next few days.

Do you follow anyone on Pinterest?  I've just begun using it but have found that it's a wonderful place for inspiration and to look for pictures of other quilters' studios.  You'd have to register but that's easy enough.  On the upper right-hand side of the screen is a search bar.  I've typed in quilts, quilt studio, quilt stash and quilters on different visits and have found hundreds of photos.  My favorite photos are of the modern quilts.  I'm thinking I like the clean, bright look of modern more and more.

One of the really nice extras to Pinterest is that when you find a photo you like, clicking on it once enlarges the photo, clicking on it again opens another tab with the website of the person who originally pinned the photo.  So, if you were to click on this photo to the right, you'd automatically get a tab for Tallgrass Prairie Studio.  Not bad, right?  No having to figure anything out.  Isn't it worth that alone?
