We are ready to head back into hibernation. Yes, the Northeast is still cold and with more snow predicted for the next couple of days - UGH - tired. Sorry the Queen doesn't sleep in the most lady like poses.

May For Me - Marcia @ Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting with Tonya @ Hillbilly Handiwork have planned a special time for quilters on how to schedule and plan some ME time as well as May projects just for us. Quilter's seldom make for themselves - May is for you. If you would like to be a blogger who contributes - pick the button and sign up - we could all use some ME tips.
I was re-organizing, sorting piles and putting things away - didn't you see that Jelly Roll jump right into my hand? Yes, something new. Using a pattern from Maryquilts.com - boxed boxes with a jelly roll that uses the maximum of all those lovely strips. Will do blocks inbetween some hand work.
I decided to quilt up the 'Let's Play Marbles' and just have to finish the binding by hand. I think I am very tired of green.
I pulled a small UFO to handquilt - a peek at some whimsy. I need a little whimsy and some handquilting. Maybe some fun embellishing on this, too. And - it's not green.
