Shirley Sherrod, having been a Peace Corps(PC) volunteer with very little time on her hands when this was started, is a glutton for punishment. A way to get a handle on my many interests? or a "pinch" to get going on the many UFOs? Whatever is the result, here goes ...
UPDATE: Returning to Peace Corps as a Response Volunteer in Colombia - now finished this segment of my life. Back to retired life on the road.
The month of May is a busy one for us and I can tell you it won't be in the needlework or quilting arena. Our granddaughter has many an activity and event this month in honor of her graduating high school. The high school graduation is a memorable time in a young woman's life and we are blessed to be able to share in it.
How wonderful is it to see these events as grandparents? And graduation comes this coming Friday.
Throughout these events/celebrations, I was able to finish another mugrug, this one for April, themed Fruit
Apple Blossoms in April lead to a basket of apples in the fall.
I was able to finish, well almost finish the flimsy for BTF#2. I miscut so had to order the last border. And so it sits waiting for me to pick up the mail, return from our next fabulous journey, and get Miss Betsy out of deep storage.
Throughout this period of time we are planning our next epic journey, this time to Africa with friends from Europe. With this in mind, Miss Betsy is put into deep storage as she is a minor irritant sitting there waiting for me to come to her and use her many talents.
I managed to make a sandwich for my flying geese UFO. I had already sandwiched them but it was way to flimsy for even a summer quilt. So Mr. Rippit came to visit and we ripped everything out and started again. It is now at the point where I can quilt it on Miss Betsy. Do I dare get her out and try? We leave in less than a week and still have some things left to do in getting ready? hmmmmm
And so the question remains, will I get it done to qualify for this quarters Stashbuster's UFO Challenge or will I have to pay a penalty?
