great day all around

what a great day today!  so many things completed, experienced, and enjoyed.  here's a quick review...

first, the sun was out and the day was warm!  spring is heading our way.  that is something to be excited about all by itself... but there was more...

my sweet husband was home today and we got to hang out, eat breakfast and then take the dog for a decent walk.  Cooper (the dog) was very happy about this situation.

next, i got to go to one of my favorite places, sew to speak, for their third birthday party.  i just love their fabric store.  it is so cheery and fun to be in.  i bought some cute coffee bean fabric by suzanne ultman and some ric-rac & lace to make some tea towels sometime soon. 

i finally completed a new project this week: bunting.  so sweet!  it is for my daughter's god-daughter (did you follow that?) and matches the quilt she (my daughter) is making for her (god-daughter) as well.  

i love these hanging in my window, so i plan to make a new string of them in other fabric next week. 

and lastly... i completed the quilt i have been working on since mid-january!  i think it is lovely... but, i am partial. what do you think? 

now... what is next on my list? 


  1. I love it Julie!!! I like the j stitched too...and it will stay put :) It was great seeing you yesterday at the shoppe! Saturdays are always busy but yesterday was certainly hopping!! I love bunting too...I made need to make some since I have trashed my family room curtains and still have not decided what I want there. See you soon:)

  2. I love your quilt Julie, it's beautiful!

  3. I really love your quilt, the colors, the quilting and of course the initial (it is mine too!). I saw your comment on Molly Flanders blog about hexagons and I came to check out your blog! I posted about hexagons on my blog a little bit ago, it is so fun. There are lots of tutorials out there if you want to try it. It is addictive though and I never thought I would do one by hand.
