I can't believe the month of May is almost over.
It is foggy and soggy here in NJ
BUT Thank God this week is coming to an end and tomorrow I can look forward to sewing and finishing my baby gift for the shower next weekend.
I know some of you all are still sleeping but on the east coast we get up early it is 5:15 am.
I have to finish my wonderful cup of coffee and then get ready for work.
Have a wonderful day and Hope sunshine follows you all day.

we are supposed to get to 90 degrees today but there are a lot of thunder storms and some rain around us... makes for a humid day.
I am off to work, we will have DGD this weekend and I want to get some sewing done too... she likes to have me sew some fabric for her..
you all have a super day

Chriss, I just thought of something. During our show in August, we brought alot of fabric squares and taught the grandkids to hand sew them together. They loved it! Little Ryan loved it the most! So, maybe you could try that with your DGD?? I found a basket with a hinged lid to keep the squares, needles, scissors, etc. in, too. It helps the kids to learn hand work, plus no worries about using the machine.
Another footnote about the Pineapple Sage. It grows to be fairly large..about 3 ft. if it likes it's location. The leaves are a yellow green, and has red flowers and attracts butterflys. It smells luscious! Just like pineapple! You can take several big handfuls and put them in some boiling water, let it sit for a few hours and steep, it makes wonderful iced tea! (Edit to add: PS--it smells nothing like Sage!)

Yesterday I sewed a little on blocks for my older sis's quilt, but mostly spent the day sewing muslin edges onto my Austin Family Quilt and then I loaded it onto my L.A. frame. But, when I went to sew, I kept getting VERY loose, loopy stitching on the underside. Now that machine was sewing beautifully a month ago and I've changed no settings. So I need to play with tensions, I guess. Cats can do mysterious things sometimes, and mine are extremely talented. Quilting machines are like the little girl with the curl right in the middle of her forehead. When they run good, they run very, very good, but when they run bad, they are horrid!
But even a bad day quilting beats a good day working!! maryz

It is rainy again here on Long Island. I do not mind it is watering my plants. But my grass is about 8" long LOL
Dolores...For someone that got up at 5:15 on a cloudy day you sound like sunshine!
Lois...I hope your work day goes by fast so you can get home and sew.
Chriss...For us here it has been a very cool and rainy spring, NOT a problem for me. I have never liked the dampness and humidity here.
Suzette...Good luck with getting you SD's quilt done. Any quilt is worth waiting for. I am sure she knows how much work it takes.
For all of you that went to work today yesterday was my last vacation day(i do not work fri's)and I will be back on Mon.))))::
I got so much done in & out side the house. Usually when I have time off I visit family..I really like being home, 10 days in a row. I can not wait to stop working!!
Now I have have breakfast and read the paper, then clean up a few things around the house. After that I am free to work in the baby quilt((::
I hope the landscape man come in the rain..I really want to replace those shrubs.

Got all my pieces for the baby airplane quilt cut. I'm making the airplane block from the Victory Quilts book. Each block has 22 LITTLE pieces. Yes, I am blonde and nuts........But that's another story.....LOL It's going to be so cute. I'm making it in Red, White and Blue as the Grandpa and Daddy of this baby boy (not born yet) Are retired Air Force and active Air Force, so I thought it would be cute to have the airplanes.
Y'all have a good day.
