Color Therapy Thursday

This afternoon I spent an hour with  dental sadist, aka my hygienist. I'm sure she is very nice in a social situation. From my perspective, she had an evil glint in her eye and was wielding high-speed power tools.

Don't get the idea that I don't practice good oral hygiene. Quite the contrary. However, a regular toothbrush just doesn't do the job. So from now on, my Sonicare is my new BFF. Promise.

Trying to take my mind off the high-pitched drilling noise, I went to a happier place. Thinking about fabric and color. Tossing around the idea of doing a spool block quilt-along with lots of different options.

Have you ever taken covert pictures in, say, Borders or Barnes & Noble? Wouldn't these be the starting point for some great quilts? Question: are we getting our ideas from packaging, or are packagers getting their ideas from us?

My favorite:

Okay, I'm outta here. Off to floss again. Ouch...

I feel for ya... I have a Sonicare and a hygienist (whom I "get to" go visit on Mon., weather permitting, of course), too. We've been "friends" for years (on both counts).

Oooh, thanks for the eye candy! Whenever I'm at a bookstore, I've usually got my almost-3-year-old in tow, so I haven't seen all of these (clearly) quilty-inspired goods! These are awesome!!

I've noticed all the 'quilty" looking paper goods lately too. Thanks for the ideas. I think that your quilt along sounds it!

Yea, I'm not a big fan of going to the dentist either. So I try to floss more often to diminish the drama of the experience. Love your covert pictures! We are studying packaging in my concept development class, which is more interesting than I thought it would be. These pics are very inspiring.

Hello! My best friend was a dental hygienist, so it wasn't so bad to go there, but unfortunately she doesn't work anymore!
I just love your crafts and it's always enjoy to visit you! Always I find inspiration and ideas!
Sunny wishes! Teje
