May Stitch-Along

I'm so excited!  I've completed my May (and half my June) Stitch-along blocks!  Woot!

These are SO much fun, but my time has been so limited.

Angel: as funny as it sounds, this block reminds me of my late mother.  She was just so sweet, always had a kind smile, loved the holidays, and is now an angel.  She'd like the snowmen surrounding her!

Penguins: now this one reminds me of my sister.  She is a docent at the Detroit Zoo, and last year she treated me for my birthday a trip behind the scenes at the Penguinarium!  It was SO cool!  The birds were loud, stinky, and utterly adorable!

Elf: makes me think of all my nieces and nephews.  We have a VERY large family so, when we gather for the holidays, the kids will scurry to and fro passing out the gifts from under the tree!

I can't wait to see this quilt completed!  Winter sounds pretty good in this hot and humid Michigan!


P.S. If you get a chance, visit the Stitch-Along site and see how wildly talented these women are and how wildly diverse is their fabric choice!


  1. Great stories with your blocks. I love the snowmen peeking out around your border. Tracee xx
