What to say about May....if flew that's for sure!

MY month was a little rough. I had two venous ablations. I am very bruised to say the least. I get to wear those lovely support hose from ankle to groin.  My hope is that in the end I will walk better that I have lately. Two more procedures to go. but not for several weeks. Thank goodness!

  I really rely on my cellphone to remind me what I accomplished every month. I seem to use the cellphone camera more than I do my Olympus camera. I learned how to use an app called Photo Grid. It is quick and easy and free. I wanted something that I could group pictures with so that I did not have a 5 foot length of shots when just showing little differences in things like sewing technique.

Grandson Louis got an opportunity to go to the beach. Its been a few years since I have gone. Being that I live in Florida and am surrounded by water, that is a real shame.

He had a terrific time! His favorite thing to do was throw seashells at the seagulls, who kept swooping down looking for food.
In May we celebrate my 1st Grandson Logan's birthday. He turned 9 this year. I can't believe all that time has past. The newest addition to Logan's family is his sister Raina born  in March. For his party, at his other grandmas house, he asked his mother to dress Raina up in her pretty outfit including headband. Logan on the other hand went in his favorite skull pajamas that are 4 sized to big! LOL .
Looks like they had a great time!
I spent the month nursing my legs and cleaning my sewing room. Scraps, drawers etc. I made a few more e-book stands and mailed them to my daughter in Seattle. The little one is a matching phone stand.

Can you tell by the pictures which one my daughter wants for herself?

I also made my AAQI mini quilt. I really like this one.

There are only 2 more months to donate a quilt to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative! Don't delay, the Dealine is July 31, 2013. Ami's goal is to bring 2,500 quilts to the Houston Show in November.
They are so close to raising the $1,000,000 Dollars for research. This disease  touches every family in every country on earth! I may need this help in the future. Donate or purchase a quilt today!
Lastly, I pulled out my Easy Street Quilt blocks and batting. Time to finish it. I would like an nice summer weight quilt to enjoy on my bed!
Happy Quilting to all!
