May UFO & WIP Challenge Prize

Thanks to everyone who participated in May. I saw quite a few patriotic projects last month as well as lots of quilts, table runners, and various other sewing projects. Well done and beautiful – all of them!

I just returned from Austin yesterday. I got to wear my “grandma hat” for three days, and it was a blast! The heat wasn’t too bad, but those darn mosquitoes are vicious! Coming from the bay area of California, I forget that mosquitoes are part of the atmosphere in most parts. Ha! But I love the warm evenings and those lightening bugs are way cool.

I’ll announce this month’s giveaway prize and my project tomorrow. I hope your week is off to a good start!
