Monday May For Me


I hope you have found some ME time.  Myself, almost burnt out with a lot of big quilts that all needed a deadline by the end of this month.  The last one is under the 'needle' as we speak.  

I did get some flowers/plants in the ground during the week, but my big ME time was to attend this:



A celebration of one year active in putting Schoharie County on the National Quilt Barn Trail.


Twenty are completed and another twenty are 'in-progress' with more sign-ups waiting for approval.



A lovely set-up and venue for the evening.


 This huge quilt was sent by Donna Sue Groves, Quilt Barn Trails Founder.



And this lovely crazy quilt was used as an introduction to another venture of recreating an 1830's community crazy quilt.  It was made by Betty Pillsbury who is internationally known for her work and lives in our valley - and she is spearheading this project.  So this will be some of my ME June/July time to go play with this.  



The winner of their choice of panel w/fat quarter bundle is

Stone Fence Farm - I will get in touch with Amy to pass on her winnings.
Thank you all for your comments - some lovely books were mentioned - a lot of good reads and maybe some that need a re-visit.


Since this week is my birthday week and what's a birthday with out a cake - how about a quilt kit from Connecting Threads 'Baby Cakes'.  This is a flannel quilt 58" square and all the fabrics are in here - you just add batt and backing.  I will ship internationally - Just leave me a comment on what is your favorite cake. 


Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. Happy happy birthday, Sharon! Maybe the best "May for Me" activity for you is to NOT quilt for a day here and there...burnout averted!

    My very favorite cake is Carrot Cake. Runner up is Poppyseed Cake topped with warm buttermilk glaze. I'm gaining lbs just thinking about them! :D
