May Day!


Wow, I can hardly believe it's the first of May already. I can't really say it's spring here. It's trying, but I woke to see snow covering the ground this morning. It's all melted now, but it was quite the eye-opener. lol

No flowers here yet. Not really. Oh a few brave tulips have lifted their heads, but that's about it. Buds are threatening on the trees, but haven't made the final push yet. I can't wait until they finally bloom.

This morning, hubby and I went to a sale the local Fine Arts College has every year. They sell donated materials (wool, fabric, embroidery threads, etc... you name it, it's there), magazines, and seconds from students. They have the sale once a year and it was crowded.

I bought a few things. Got two baggies filled with wool tapestry skeins for two bucks each. Haven't decided what I'm going to do with them yet, but something will occur to me, I'm sure. Bought a hand-dyed/embroidered picture of a dragonfly for my sister. (She loves dragonflies.) Four craft magazines, some felted pieces of fabric, and a hard-carved wooden bowl rounded out my purchases. All for $20. You gotta love a sale. Plus, I'm supporting the local college so it's win/win situation.

I wonder where I'll go next weekend?

What are you doing this weekend?

Happy May to you as well. It's really hot here so I'm staying inside and watching an NCIS marathon today. Then tomorrow I'll work on finishing up my WIP. Have a good weekend N.J.

Enjoy your NCIS marathan, Kat. Send some of your warm weather my way. :)

If I could figure out how to ship it I'd send it all to you. I much prefer the cold to the heat.:-)
