When I was a little girl my Grandma Orme had Hollyhocks on the side of her house. I remember picking them and sitting at her kitchen table making Hollyhock dolls with toothpicks. I think Nann and I became pros at getting them to stand on their toothpick legs while holding their parasols. My daughter, Jamie, has a tree that grows these flowers. I picked a few of them and made a doll to show Jaycee. It brought back so many happy memories.
I've been a slacker at quilting this summer. I'm just not feeling like doing it. Not at all. I have quilted some flannel to make quilts to sell in my booth....but that's about it. I'm hoping my mood will improve and I'll feel like doing it again....someday soon.
