I'm eeking out the last minutes of vacation. I don't like to announce on the blog when we go away but we left on June 1 for my parents cabin in the mountains. No cable, no internet - we love it! We had a good time spending time together away from the hustle and bustle. On the way, we stopped at the Georgia Aquarium for a few hours. Greg fell in love with the Beluga Whales. He took all kinds of video and spent a long time watching them.
Not much sewing this weekend as a result of just getting back. I did manage my We Be Learning Beginner Bee block for Nita this month. She wanted a Churn Dash in 30's fabric on a white background.
Since we were gone, I still need to post for my May Theme-a-Licious updates. The theme for May was May Memories which is all about working on class projects that we hadn't finished. I have 2 that I worked on a bit this month. First up, Long May She Wave by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. Ellen's classes are a real treat so if you ever get a chance to take one, please do!
I also worked on Needlebook of Stitches; a Chessie and Me piece from a class I took at The Attic Needlework in January 2011. Most of this was stitched. I finished up the stitching (and moved some around) and cut the linen pieces out. I attached one of them to the wool needle book we made in class. I could have finished this up but Ann Dale was hammering away in my head.
Jean and Heather tagged me in the past few days; I'll respond to those later in the week as this post is getting long. It's going to be a hard re-entry back into the work scene tomorrow. I hope to combat that with some needle and thread time. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope all your stitches are happy ones!
