I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

May has "snaked" its way onto my design wall...

Using bits and bobs                                                       little pieces sewn to make those wedges .................................................
Little fishies, alphabets, all old, old fabric.....


Speaking of "OLD"

Yesterday was a "double-dipping" day for me; not only Mother's Day but also my 70th (yikers--how did that happen????) birthday. Altho' MAY is our "blue" month and even though I am in my 70's now...(sigh), how can a person be blue when: 

My wonderful friend of many years and musical partner, Mary Ann, brought me this:

It's quite a "highbrow" plant--all my others are whispering among themselves:      She's called "Portulacaria Africanis Variegata". 

And here's a close up of her calling card...isn't that just so serene....I love it!

My little cherub decided to alight and keep her company

Thank you--Mary Ann--for such a perfect gift--you DO know what I like :--)).

I hope you are enjoying some glorious weather..hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse
