May started with a lovely trip to Sanibel Island with my daughter
to celebrate Mother's Day.
We enjoyed swimming in the warm coastal waters,
spotting dolphins and rays swimming off shore,collecting sea shells,
and drinking fancy adult beverages!
Prior to leaving, I finished my granddaughter's quilt for her bed.
So much fun to quilt!
Then I was off to my retreat with Sue Spargo in Santa Fe.
What a gracious woman and fabulous teacher!
I started one project,
my interpretation of a miniature Oaxacan candlestick I saw
at the International Museum of Folkart;
but then got totally side tracked by learning to weave a tree on a loom.
We are headed to Africa in September
and so this is the start of my modified Folk Tales quilt to commemorate our trip.
I continue to sew along with Sew Kind of Wonderful
and will have my Rock the Block quilt done soon.
Started another Elizabeth Hartmann pattern for my DIL,
but I will be back with those when they are in the flimsy state.
We are headed to Colorado in June.
My body needs a break from pandemic stitching!
Until next time...
