Did I ever tell you....

I am a non-stop doodler! If I have a pencil in my hand, something is going to get drawn on! This is my desk calander from my job. As you can see, its been a little slow around the office. In fact we joke that we keep coming in every day, but I feel like someone forgot to tell us to not show up anymore. LOL

This is a quilt my friend Judy made. She actually does some very detailed and intricate ones, but I had my camera handy. I love the kittys on this quilt. Judy and I have been BFF's since we were about 11 years old. So, thats about 40 years now. This is three of her dogs. Kahlua is the Carin Terrier and Glory is the Westie and Rowdy is the Australian Shepard, with her new hair cut. The are my God Dogs, ( I am in the will!) These three dogs are therapy dogs who volunteer at hospitals and visit patients,,,,so they are awesome.

And since yesterday was the first day of spring I planted some flowers. Its almost to late in AZ for flowers. Its getting so hot here, its been around 90. They burn up here in the summer. I put them on my porch and they will be in the complete shade all day, so they should do well. So, everyone have a fantastic first week of spring and until next time......

Morning Gail, I love your calender, you should print and sell these as they are fun and useful at the same time. Love the quilt and the doggie is so sweet. Thank you for sharing

Hi Gail,

I wouldn't call that doodle at all! Those are drawings!! They are so beautiful, you are so good with that! Love your calendar. :)
Kids would love to colour them, but I think adults too!

I love the doodling! If I worked there with you I would look forward to seeing what you doodle each day. Keep on doodling!


Carol at Business in THE Bag said...

Hi Gail, what wonderful doodling. I love the kitty and the little baby bird in his nest. You should consider some gift cards from your doodles!

Your BFF's quilt is just lovely. She really does nice work.

Love the doodles! Glad you stopped by and saw your squirrel...think of you every time I see them! Thought I would dedicate a picture to you!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...'s too late there to plant flowers and it's too early here. I planted a few herbs over the weekend knowing full well I needed to cover them for the night chill and I forgot and the basil got ruined. ugh! Hi Gail, I was delighted you visited...don't be a stranger and visit often. Never in a million years would my doodles be as pretty as yours. Until you said they were doodles I thought they were part of pretty calendar. xo Lynn

Hi Gail,
Your "doodles" are amazing. I would call it art. That is such a great idea for a calender. Love the quilt too. Judy is very talented, just like her friend, Gail. :O)

Cottage Flair said...

Wow... cool doodles. You have quite a talent. I wish we could plant flowers but since it's still in the twenty's, it won't be anytime soon.

Michelle (Shell) May said...

Oh my doodling friend! Love them all, love that quilt and love the fact that it's 90 in your neck of the woods. I can't wait for that here!
Have a fun week my friend. Keep your new designs coming. They are wonderful.

Cute doodles! It's fun to see what people doodle, as we're all quite different. :)
