Seriously??? It is May already? We’re already a week into May. I don’t know where the time is going. Guess that makes me really OLD.
Life has been super busy here. The school year is winding down and proms, school plays, graduations and birthdays seem to fill the time.
The garden is also calling me outside more and more. Of course I love the time spent watching the birds at this time of the year. The hummers are amazing as they flit here and there – always in such a hurry. You seldom see them taking a rest.
The orioles and quail are also back at the feeders. We are awaiting the arrival of this year’s babies.
Sewing has taken a back seat – other than a lot of logo embroidery, hemming dresses and mending, but I did make a beach bag. I had some of the “Fruit Ladies” fabric and thought it would look cute on a quilted bag.
We attended the grandchildren’s school play this week – HMS Pinafore. Our grandson was “the orchestra”, playing every song on the piano. He has worked so hard and did a fabulous job.
Several weeks ago a lovely package arrived in my mailbox. I had won a wonderful sewing companion and scissors from Cathy at Crafty Cat Blog. This is so beautifully made and will be perfect for my stitching.
Isn’t the little tassel beautiful?
I'm going to be meeting up with a sewing friend next week so I will hopefully have something more to show on my next post.
Enjoy spring and if you get May showers would you please send us some?????
Happy Mother's Day to all who will celebrate it this weekend.
