Did you celebrated May basket day? I remember we used to celebrated it when I lived in the small town of Iowa. In that paper basket, there were homemade popcorns, M&M candies, and a piece of homemade sugar cookie and best of all is a little message written on the paper! May used to be a month that seems never swing by fast enough. It always feels so far away when I lived in ND. I was always in layers of clothes by the end of semester and still in layers of clothes at the beginning of the June. Now, here in central south-ish Iowa; windows have been opened, ceiling fans have been spinning, shorts are out and wool blankets are tucked away. Birds are quiet busy talking these days! But all is good!
I can't wait for Sunday to come. I have been adding things to the to-do list. It will be some kind of gardening related projects that I have been fancy to try. Maybe a few planters on the side of the house then plan some tulips for next year. I still give high hopes of some herb pots if I can get any, but don't trust me on this one. I am not a good green thumb, indeed a worse one! Maybe some of you can send your tips on my way! I really need some helps!
After hours of trimming, I finished all the blocks, but you know the true is that I should have waited! I should have waited till I purchase a squared ruler before I started, but it is late! The trimming job isn't too bad, but not perfect! I have been busy pinning them back together and stitch up. The first block looks fine, but really could be better! On that to-do list also involved a trip to craft store and purchase a squared ruler. I never though I needed one until I started a few projects lately. I think it will help me out with better trimming on the sides. Oh, Yes I get a little bit impatient sometimes!
I have been spinning myself around as well! I am always on the freeway these days! Drive for lots rehearsals and recitals! Oh, I bring all my patchwork pieces with me then sat quietly hand-quilt them. Then I read a few pages of the books that I brought along with, likely quilting books! I am into some vintage patterns lately. Oh, really they are quiet delight to read through. Then I made few more stitches! I bet I would need new prescription for my new glasses this summer!
