Quilter's Daybook

A Quilter's Day Book for May 21st, 2009
for today, May 21st, 2009

Outside my sewing room window...
my hollyhocks are finally starting to bloom!!!
i absolutely love, love, love them and i have been waiting and waiting for them
doesn't the bud look like it's made of fabric?

I am thinking...that my sewing room needs a make-over. i have now added projects (other than quilting) to my list of things to do. thankfully, bob can help me out with several of them. one of the many is this...

my dad made it for me a while ago.
with bob's help, it will soon under-go a complete makeover. stay tuned!
I am working on...this wallhanging.

after 6 years, i think it might actually get hung up this year!
On the Longarm is...this quilt that i shared with you yesterday. it is gi-NOR-mous!!!

and see that blank wall? that's about to change...

I thought I'd share...this picture! Oh.My.Gosh! I love it! do you remember the pillowcases that i showed you way back when? the flag day farm panel replicates this quilt.

Have a GREAT day!

Love your Quilter's Daybook as always Julie. I also love Hollyhocks. They are such a cottage garden type of flower. Right now the Foxgloves are getting ready to bloom here, along with Lupins.
