A winner has been drawn by my Random Number Man and it is Sharon of Stitching Along the Mississippi!! Congrats and for those of you that did not win.........Stay tuned to my blog as I will be doing a few more crazy quilting giveaways over the course of this next year!!
One of my favorite musicals is "Camelot". I used to put that 33 1/3 album (yes, some of you will know what that is and some of you might not!) on the record player and sing at the top of my lungs to every song on the soundtrack. My favorite tune from "Camelot" is "If ever I should leave you....." and no one can sing it better than Robert Goulet (at least in my opinion). Then there is no one who can sing quite so lovely as Julie Andrews and with so much energy as in "It's May, it's May, the lusty month of May!!!"...........and today is the first day of that awesome month of May!!!
I loved May Day as a kid and delivering the little baskets filled with candies to my friends. Every year I make a few and planned to make a couple yesterday. But then..........I made something else and I'll share that tomorrow because what I made is a surprise for a good friend.
Now, as you may know, I have been doing some crazy quilting and I have also been doing a lot of sorting and cleaning. I have so much stuff of my own and people give me stuff. I have too much stuff!! So, I put together a pile of crazy quilting fabrics, some floss, some beads, some lace and a box to hold the threads and trims! Plus there's a pretty little journal to record your crazy quilting thoughts/designs! Think of it as a May Day Treat.....................
Here's what the box looks like when it's closed. I think it was a box for photos but I got it at a thrift shop and thought it would be fun to do a crazy quilting piece and insert it where the photo would go. I will never get to this as there are other "to do" items in my crazy quilting chest of goodies. Soooooooooo........I thought, let's give it away!
Today, I am off to "Tuesday Crazies" at my friend Adella's house. This is my group of friends that connected over crazy quilting but everyone just brings their current project now. Mine is most often my stack of crazy quilting blocks because I never seem to be able to finish them. I'm on a mission, though, and those blocks will be finished by the end of this year. If I keep putting it in writing, it will happen. LOL! Have fun while I'm away. Leave that comment now................
