I'm Still Here!

Hi Everyone, Believe it or not, I'm still here. I've been busy, busy longarming for clients the last few weeks and have not worked much on personal projects. As I have done the past few years, I am taking July and August off of longarming, so I am working hard to get my promised client quilts finished in the next couple of months. The summer rest from client work is always lovely. And then I am ready to get back to it in September.

I am slowly plugging along on my appliqué quilt. 10 blocks almost finished (12 flowers need their centers.)

The blocks are now 14", but I may trim them down a bit. We'll see. The background fabric is "Coffee Bean" from Pepper Cory's line of Peppered Shot Cottons. I really love working with the fabric and I think it sets off the colors quite nicely.

My Favorite Day of the Year

Today is my favorite day of the whole year. I never know exactly when it is going to occur, but it usually happens in late May. It's the day my peonies bloom. I anxiously wait for their big flowers and big pop of color in my garden. Of course the other flowers are pretty great.

But nothing beats the showiness of the peony.
