As we say farewell to May, my Heart a Day for May comes to a close. It was a fun little project and it did keep my restless hands busy during a month where my sewing machine saw very little action. I know the month has thirty one days, but the last one will go on the back of the quilt.
Another small quilting project for the month was my Minis and More. This month we were to choose our own project so I decided to use one off of my endless list of "want to dos." It is a free pattern and can be found HERE. The Minis and More Parade can be found on June 1st HERE and HERE. Thanks Michele and Sherri.
For the last few years I have been involved with four gals in a group called Sewing With Friends. In the past we have done a round robin, a row robin and a year of fabric postcard exchanges. This year we are exchanging table toppers/runners. The first is not due until the middle of July, but Ida finished hers and sent it to me already. It was wonderful because I was able to use it for our big Memorial Day party. Thank you, Ida, I so enjoyed decorating with it.
We celebrated Memorial Day on Sunday with the whole family. We fired up the wood burning oven and did pizzas. It's a great way to feed a large crowd as everyone can prepare their own pizzas. The older girls rolled out the doughs and took topping orders from the younger ones.
We celebrate our 49th anniversary on Thursday. I have no idea where the years have gone, but it has been a beautiful life. We are so blessed.
