May Wrap-Up

Unbelievable. Five months of this still new year (?) are history already. Looking back over May's activities, I am realizing that while I am having a good time, I need to focus more on my stitching.

May began with a trip to Siesta Key, FL, for 5 days. What a great get-away! That's what is showing in the first frame, and while away, I finished my semester at the branch with an on-line final. Back home, DH and I hiked to a high peak near Chillicothe for the spectacular view shown  in the second frame. The third frame is a block in a QAL I began, but doubt I will finish, as I don't have enough fabric to do all the blocks. I'll talk more on that topic soon.

In the middle row, a progress pic of my Lake Effect EPP project is followed by a group picture from Mother's Day, where 4 of the 5 "McKenzie Kids" are posing with our dear Mom. The last picture is my only finish for the month - the Village quilt top.

In the bottom row, a basket of quilts that I shared with the guild from Ashland, which was such a fun experience for me. Then our dog Steve is loaded into the back of the car for a date with the groomer. Steve is about 16 years old, and getting him into the car was no small feat! However, he looks happy to be going for a ride, doesn't he? The final picture is fabric I purchased in that sweet little Siesta Key shop, The Modern Sewist. I am still dreaming up a project for that little splurge.

Tomorrow, I am afraid I might splurge even further as the Frankfort Girls have a big day of shopping planned. We are going to several shops in eastern Ohio - leaving really early - and planning for the entire day. I will try to control my spending, as Lord knows my current stash is big enough. Stay tuned for a report on how that all goes. *wink*

Speaking of the Frankfort Girls, we had our regularly scheduled get-together last Friday at Sheryll's, and look at this fantastic coffee cake she served. Man, was it tasty. She got the recipe from Pinterest - look for Blueberry Muffin Cake, or something close to that, if you go searching.

And here is one finish by who else but Jan. She is the most industrious woman! Her love of all things in primary colors continues to reflect in the quilts she makes. And did you notice the pretty quilting? Nice.

So May is wrapped up. Hope your month has been wonderful. Now, I intend to make June even better! How about you??

Happy Quilting, Friends!
