Busy Month!

Happy Memorial Day.  I am grateful to everyone who has served this great country.  This is my flag on the front of my house today.  

May is one of my busiest months of the year.  I have squeezed in some quilting, but not as much as I would have liked.  We had a very wet spring, and that caused a huge delay in spring planting on the farm, so May has been go, go, go.  I also had all my end of the year testing for my school, I was in charge of administration of that and I'm glad it's over.

We just have 7 days of school left and although I have a huge list of house projects to get done this summer, generally I do those in the mornings and spend my afternoons quilting!  I have had massive amounts of yardwork to do (and still do, trying to hire help, but having difficulty with that).  I also made a weekend trip to visit my daughters, grandkids and sisters.  It was a lot of fun watching my grandson play t-ball and my granddaughter in a dance recital at age 3!

Now to some things I have accomplished, or tried to anyway!

You have been busy! I'm glad you will have some time to do more quilting soon. I love seeing your projects. :) Happy End of the School year!

You're good to finish up the Charity quilts. I have one to bind on a Roadtrip. Glad you got to go to visit family. Grandchildren grow up so fast.

Great quilts! I'm looking forward to seeing your finished Canyon Dance, as I often think about the quilt you made some time ago with the same pattern. Haven't yet purchased the templates though.
