30 days hath Sept, April, June and November........

Yep, this morning I woke up 10 hours later and slept GOOOOOD last night. I was actually falling asleep holding this in my hand. I've never fell asleep with a needle in my hand before.

I had to stop and think about todays' date and it's May 1st......May Day.

I hope to finish up this little piece into a pillowkeep today, along with a bunch of other things on my to-do list.  I'm stitching this piece on a remnant of 30 Ct Creek Bed Brown R & R linen. Fibers are Crescent colors silks, and Weeks Dye.

I've got to put the vase of tulips here and then sew it up!

This is a freebie on Primitive Betty's Blog site. Pop over there. She has some cute freebies!

She has one I want to stitch up to be a companion pillowkeep called Tulip Time. This will look good in our Dutch colonial home.

Speaking of home, here's' Miss Abbie first thing in the morning. Picture taking is better when she first gets up. She's is my lump of sugar. My stitching buddy and is forever herding in Ren when he goes the wrong way.
I guess she is now the "seeing eye dog" for Ren.
I think that as she has matured she finally figured out he can't see and is old. She's much better with him now.
On May 7th, Abigail will be 8 months old.

Enjoy your May Day!
