We've had a great May so far with lots of celebrations. We combined quite a few with Mother's Day when the kids and grandchildren were here. Now we are into the graduations and spring school concerts before the year is finished for all the school aged children. It's hard to believe another year is done for them.
Much of my time has been spend redoing several of the gardens in the yard lately. They were overgrown and in need of some attention. The roses are just finishing their first big bloom of the year and it's time to deadhead and fertilize them. They have been spectacular this year.
We have areas of the yard with some easy care geraniums growing. I especially like this one's color that was started from a plant growing at the home of a friend of mine. Thanks Joan!
There has not been a lot of sewing to show for my past few weeks. I did manage to finish a few more flowers for our BlooM SAL. I don't have the borders on these yet as I want to see what colors are needed in the full layout. I think I have three flowers left to construct.
To see more BlooM blocks be sure to pop over to Cheryll's blog and see what others are sewing.
May was the month for our next hanging towel swap. Irene's kitchen in is turquoise and brown so I did her towel in those colors and added a turquoise patriotic one for her to use for Memorial Day.
I've been working on finishing up a bridal veil and altering bridesmaid dresses for the upcoming wedding of our oldest granddaughter. Next up is the flower girl dress. The young couple graduated last weekend.
My last few weeks have revolved around repairman. It has been one thing after another to the point where I hesitate to touch anything for fear it, too, will break. You know it's bad when the dogs are so familiar with the plumber that they run up to greet him when they see him arrive!
