GOODBY TO A LOVELY MONTH
Not only have we had good spring weather, but I also had a weeklong visit from a dear friend from Seattle. The highlight of the visit was a trip to the University of Wisconsin arboretum, where we got to see and smell the wonderful lilac collection, all of varied size, color and fragrance. We also saw some fauna, namely groups of wild turkeys munching grass near the road. We even had an encounter with a snapping turtle which thought he owned the road.
I also took her to our Monona Quilters group, which she really enjoyed and remarked how everyone was so encouraging to the other folks at show and tell. My contribution to that was my Pinwheel Row quilt top. Since she left I have been catching up on my blocks for May. I finished the Fasceted Stripe block for Modern HST Sampler for Blossom Heart Quilts like without any more ripping.
I am most happy with my green Twinkler block, the first one I’ve been able to finish with NO RIPPING!
In addition, today I put together my 8-inch slab block featuring doves of peace. So I managed to complete my monthly goals for the first time this year.
I hope you have all had a pleasant month of May.
