May Day


Well the sun will shine, it will get warmer, and the lawnmowers have been primed for the first cutting of grass.  The tractors and machinery have been delivered to the crop fields which means they will be getting land in ready for planting, then the planting and soon little signs of new life will appear across the flat lands.   I love the smell of new mown grass, fresh tilled soil, and new sprouting crops.


This will be my inspiration for May's 'Let's Book It'.  I had a hard time narrowing down which project to use - again a book that should not have sat idly on that dusty shelf.  AND yes, my shelves are dusty and need some tidying.


Since I've been wanting to do a 'curve' project, I thought this would fit the bill.  I, also, have a basket of various plaids, stripes, and flannels that need to be played with - perfect.


RSC15 - the color for May is green - the darker greens in your scrap pile.  I have one of my large rolling cart's drawers full of greens (and I spy some blues that got mixed in).  So some color sorting to ensue (and put those blues where they belong) so some block play can happen.


I have that binding to finish, so I need this reminder to join in on Slow Sunday Stitching. 



I have participated with Marcia's May For Me from the start.  With my 'simplify' year, my May For Me will be a little toned down this year because I need time for ME.

I will be a Hands 2 Help guest blogger on Sunday, May 3rd over at Sarah's Confessions of a Fabric Addict

And my Birthday week will have a special give away.

I Hope your May is wonderous,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Toning it down a bit this May? Your post sounds as if you'll be as busy as ever! I'm always amazed at how much you get accomplished in a month. Can see already that this will be a fairly unproductive month, quilt-wise, as the garden has yet to be scoped out, tilled and planted! But the sunshine and warmer weather does beckon!

  13. Wow. Beautiful quilt pattern! It's going to be fun watching it come together.
    Difficult to believe that it is already MAY, your birthday and May for Me time. This IS going to be a good month.
