Happy Mother's Day

These are from Jacob's front yard! I had these on my desk at work all week and brought them with me to AC for the weekend. I love peonies. Momo has several bushes in her garden that are from the house where my mom was born. I hope that eventually I will have my own house and can grow peonies myself...continue the tradition and what not.

Happy Mother's Day!

Here's my quilt

It was a gorgeous day today & I decided to take advantage of that by going to the Konza. Since I finished my quilt last night Jacob lugged my backpack with the quilt in it so I could snap a few 'finished' pictures.

Happy May Day

I finally finished my Good Folks quilt! My fingertips may be throbbing, but I finished hand stitching the binding today. Not surprisingly, the cats have spent more quality napping time with it than I have. When I got it back from the quilter and it was in the plastic bag, guess where the favorite sleep spot was. While I was hand stitching the binding, the quilt bunched at my feet was the primo location in the apartment. Now that the quilt is done and laying across the back of my sofa...

I was so busy sewing all day that I didn't get to buy any May Day flowers. The holiday was kind of a big deal when I was younger. I loved ringing the doorbells of family friends, leaving flowers, and running like hell. I'm disappointed that I don't have any flowers for May Day, but it will go on tomorrow's To Do List. And how can I be too terribly disappointed when I just finally finished my quilt?!
