Our Mays are always a crazy month with seven birthdays, two anniversaries and Mother’s Day – lots of mothers - in our family. This month we have also added two First Communions and one Confirmation …always cherished times. The calendar month seems to roll around faster and faster each year and I find it hard to grab a few minutes of quiet sewing time in between all of the celebrations. I think I need to give up housekeeping!!!!!
This is as far as I got on my Disappearing 4 Patch (D4P). It finished up at 40” square which I think is a great size for a baby quilt.
I needed a quick gift for a friend so I did another frog on a lily pad mug rug. We have a running joke about frogs so I thought she would get a kick out of it and she did.
Although I am holding out no hopes of accomplishing my goals I set this month, I would like to finish the next four blocks of my New York Beauty project. Have you set your goals yet?
Lots of time has been spent in the garden as well. My first plumeria is just starting to bloom. They do not normally bloom until July.
My favorite orange orchid is also blooming. I LOVE the color of this one. Wouldn't this make an incredible corsage? My dad had a greenhouse filled with orchids when we were teenagers. I used to make and sell orchid corsages for the boys to give to their dates when they went to the prom. I'll have to dig out a picture of the bouquet that my dad made for my wedding. It was stunning.
I know that several people lately have been having a problem with comments going to their e-mails. I have noticed that my some of my comments are being returned to my spam mail as "unable to deliver". My settings remain the same so I am not sure what is going on with blogger. Most of the mail seems to involve yahoo accounts. Has anyone figured out a way to solve the problem? The comments still show up on the posts, but they don't not show up in the inbox.
