Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Robot

Richard and I visited our youngest son, Rory, earlier in the week. Seems he was a bit under the weather, so Wednesday we made a quick trip just because retired people can do stuff like that, just, whenever. (It's taking me a little while to get used to being retired.) 

Anyway, just under his newly-built (but still needing concrete) carport was this cute little guy. He's about three feet tall and does nothing except stand sentinel in the front yard. 

Apparently Rory had some sort of water-heater gadget and a few dead wires, etc. hanging around, so he sculpted this Christmas guard for his girls. I don't know what they do with it, but I decided to give it some fame: it gets to be inspiration for today's Sunday Quilt Inspiration. How much fame could a robot sculpture want?

I think my boy has a little of my creativity genes. In fact, they all do, but then maybe they should. 

So robots...
When I started looking, I created a board, because that's what I do with the stuff I find online. Need robot ideas? Go HERE.

I've pinned most of these quilts to my "baby, quilts" board. It just seemed to make more sense. Have a great week!
