May is for Emeralds
AT PLAY IN MAY
Playing in my scrap bin - Scrappy spiral log cabin blocks from the tutorial at Love Laugh Quilt. I got 20 blocks done rather quickly. But lots more scraps so there will definately be another play day with these.
I, also, finished up all the stitcheries for the last three blocks of the Raggedy Annie and Andy BOM from The Painted Quilt. So I pieced up block #10 and hope to completed the rest of the blocks this month. I like how the sashing is added to the block piecing so you have that all done.
And what will this become? I just love to play and fell across this piece that I bought last year. Since it was photo'ed I have half of the project together. When creativity flows, go with it. Oh, yeah, that panel was cut to pieces!!
MAY FOR ME
I hope your are following some of our May for Me participants. Tonya is hosting a stitchery/block quilt along. Marcia has been offering projects as well as give aways of her lovely cards. Belinda has a R/W/B fat quarter give away. Tonya and Marcia have listings of participating bloggers, so if I missed a give away from any of them, you may want to go browse the lists. Oh, silly me, don't forget this week on my blog!

Pour 1 cup sauce in large skillet and warm.
Place 2 lasagna noodles over the sauce in the skillet.
Layer half of the carrot, spinach, and zucchini on top.
Cover with some of the ricotta mixture.
Repeat the layers, ending with noodles. Top with the remaining sauce and mozzarella. Cover and simmer until the lasagna is cooked and the cheese melts, 20 to 25 minutes.
Let rest for a few minutes before slicing.

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.
