A Quilter's Daybook for April 2, 2009
for today, April 2nd, 2009 ...
Outside My Sewing Room Window...the clouds have swallowed the sun and the trees are dancing. one of my very favorite things that i don't think i've ever verbally shared with anyone but the little princess is the sound of the trees dancing in the wind. it's very calming.
i am thinking about...whether or not i should embroider flowers or eggs on the easter runner that i'm doing. i've already put 'merry easter' on it, and i'm not sure that i love it...
I am thankful for...a loving Heavenly Father who hears our prayers and knows exactly what we need. i am also thankful for the people in my life that he uses as vessels.
One of my Favorite things...is this easter pillow my mom made me several years ago. she's a quilter also. i love that we are able to share our love for fabric and all things quilty together.
I am working on...this easter runner. like i said, i'm not sure that i love the embroidery...hmmm...what to do, what to do. flowers, eggs, nothing???
I am looking forward to...spending time tending to out neglected backyard this weekend.
On the Longarm is...my step-mom's quilt. i love it...i also finished (finally) bob's cousin's quilt that i started yesterday. it was a custom job and it took forever but the outcome is worth it...(when i say 'finally', it's because i've had it for sooo long, it's embarrassing...ReaLLy!)
I thought I'd share... this book from that patchwork place. i love seeing what others do with their quilts. it's a 'tad' outdated but i am always inspired when looking through it.
