Road Trip

Staying in a hotel room is pretty cool - had dinner in bed and watched a little television.

Bead Journal Project

JUNE is in honor of my friend, Sally, who enjoys all things "rooster". She purchased this button for a sweater. JULY is in honor of my Dad, a watercolor artist. Just couldn't resist making the color wheel as a wagon wheel - he was born and raised in the "wild" west - Montana.

AUGUST is in honor of my husband's Aunt Marion. The focal piece on this is actually a stick pin. I stitched the post to the reverse side before adding the backing fabric.
For those keeping track, May is the missing month. In a couple of weeks we will be headed to our summer home in Maine and then I will be able to work on it. The piece will honor my husband's mother and I need a snippet of her wedding gown to incorporate into it.

Sis's Cinco de Mayo party

Good morning. Hope you all stopped by at my sister's blog party http://www.lv-beader.blogspot.com/ . I had a delicious pork and pepper wrap. I'll have to stop by later for some of the stuffed strawberries.

A Blossom for May

This afternoon I discovered this flower had blossomed. Once again I've no idea what it is. The landscaper put in about ten of these shrubs but so far this is the only bloom.
