I'm in a hurry to get things done ...

....Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun ... (lyrics from Alabama song)

That's what I did yesterday and this morning. Now a whole bunch of things are done (cleaning, laundry, baking, sewing) only the chicken to be put in the oven for diner and I can (finally) sit, take a deep breath and enjoy life once again. Siiiiggghhhh!!

I did finish the month of May. Yay!  These blocks finish at 6 inches.

May 27th was Roman Cross - 33 pieces (pictures acting up again!)

Garden Maze - 41 pieces (another contender for RSC2017)

Eight Hands - 37 pieces

New Hour Glass - 44 pieces (had some issues with this one. I put some blue grapes in the middle and the brown grapes on the outside.) Needs a trim.

And May 31st : Rolling Pinwheel - 36 pieces for a total of 191.

Group photo! lol. Windy day!

The total for May is -   1 252
The total for the first five months of the year is -   3 542
Pheew! That's a lot of scraps! 

Now this being said, I want to slow the pace right down to a crawl... it is windy today and I love windy days, so out the door I am going. Of course, I'll bring something to keep my hands busy. 

I have a few butterflies prepped, waiting for the final touches. I also would like to put a few stitches in Shakespeare that has been so neglected. 

I will be at Kathy's (Kathy's Quilts) for Slow Sunday Stitching
and at Cynthia's place (Quilting is more fun than Housework) for Oh Scraps!
I'll cross the ocean to be with Nicky's place (Mrs Sew and Sow) for Scraptastic Tuesday! She is preparing a quilt a long. Come and see.

Hope to see you there!

Until next time ...
