A Danddlion kind of moning

This wonderful quilt by the quilt artist Barbara Mckie caught my attention when I was looking for a picture I took last year of the golden glory of forsythia.  I realized this catches spring in a delightful way -- with the humor of the lions as well a the flower in its various stages  -- so familiar to all of us with lawns where the dandelions pop up seeming to smirk at us like that lion on the upper left.  Each of her lions has his own personality.  Isn't this fun?  I'm feeling inspired to take myself into the sewing and do something.  I need to make a small art quilt with a spring theme.  I wonder if I can borrow a little of this idea, twist it some way and surprise the person I will send it to.  Hmmm... I hope the sun continues to shine so brightly all day.
