The first finish is a Schnibble from last year. I can't remember the name of it, but I love the colors in this one. They are so easy on the eye. I am so glad to have this one finished.
Since a lot of my sewing was hand sewing as we were traveling, I managed to also finish this sweet little purse. I had won the kit from Deonn sometime last year too. It is so tiny and will be perfect for a small treasure such as jewelry.
I am linking these finishes up with A Lovely Year of Finishes and Thearica's To Do List.
My goal for June will be to quilt my jelly roll quilt. I am looking forward to getting it finished and enjoying it.
Last weekend we took a nice road trip to Wyoming. There is one road that DH and I love to travel - Highway 89. The scenery is so gorgeous as you travel up the state of Utah. The towns were celebrating Memorial Day in the cemeteries and each one was more beautiful than the last. The flag and tree lined towns were just stunningly gorgeous.
We continued up Hwy. 189 and came across a most unusual sight in the town of Heber City. We noticed buzzards - many buzzards - circling about in the air. I am SO NOT a fan of buzzards!!!! When we came to the center of town there appeared to be a buzzard party going on at the town hall. Yikes! They filled the trees and were literally clinging to the side of the building.
I had a couple of nice wins that arrived while I was away. These were both from the Sew Mama Sew hop. The lovely cushion cover came from Chris. Her work is so beautiful and you should check out her blog to see more of it.
The bags of scraps are from Kim (sorry that I cannot find her blog). These are chock full of wonderful fabrics that I can use in my scrap blocks for the Japanese x and + bee that I am participating in.
Speaking of the bee......May is my queen month and look at the fun blocks I have received so far.
So May comes to a close. Tomorrow we celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary and I have no idea where the years have gone. I'm sure we still look the same ;-)
To close off for today I will leave you with a picture of our DIL who just graduated from nursing school. She had gotten her B.A. in business after high school, but decided a few years ago to return for her nursing degree. I know her college experience this time was a bit different with a husband and five children - one born in her last year of the program, but we are terribly proud of her. Best of all, I got to pin her nursing pin on her at the Pinning ceremony. She will make an amazing nurse.
