Have you ever celebrated May Day on May 1??? Have you ever danced around a Maypole or delivered delicious treats and beautiful flowers hand picked to a neighbor???? Read THIS article from Better Homes and Gardens….
While I am not delivering you fresh flowers I have some excellent photos of flowers from my yard to share…
So happy May Day to you all!
For all of my devoted readers who kindly left me a message here last week…. I got it and appreciated it but there is a change WordPress made behind the scenes that kept me from responding personally. I just wanted each of you to know your comments mean the world to me… I will not respond publicly but privately even if hoops need to be jumped through this week… I have spend all last week email WordPress (they don’t have a phone customer service or a chat customer service only an email version with “Happiness Engineers” who can’t help or change things… very frustrating to the LEAST!!!
So what have I been up to this week! A LOT!!!!
Finished and layered for machine quilting the pillow sham tops….
They will fit our queen sized pillows when finished!
In more relevant news I am almost halfway done with the motifs on my dad’s quilt now lovely called the baseball quilt …. the backing is baseball player themed and me and my dad used to go to Astros games when I was young 🙂
Then there is the Purple Heart quilt…. I made it to almost the end of the row of stitching I started and shared last week 🙂
And from further back….
I am linking my hand quilting craftsmanship progress to my friend Kathy and her Slow Stitching crew on her blog HERE <<< 🙂
Happy May Day and please…. Pray for Ukraine in their struggle to maintain the freedom they fight for every minute!
Here in Australia we don’t celebrate May Day, though I am always happy to dance around the flowers. =) Your dad’s Baseball quilt is fabulous. Your flowers are looking gorgeous. Love those Irises.

I use word press and haven’t had a problem hope yours gets cleared up – beautiful flowers! I’m afraid I don’t pay any attention to all these “days” there is a day for every day of the week – now -sister day, brother day, may day etc
It is so annoying when things get messed up on your blog through no fault of your own. I love those pillow shams. Your quilting is looking great! My irises have yet to bloom. Yours are very pretty. Have a great week! Happy May Day!
Great projects. I have never celebrated May Day. Your flowers are lovely. Hope you have a great week Kathi!
Beautiful blog Kathi. Your storing is moving along beautifully 💗🌺🌹
You look beautiful and peaceful 🌺
No May Day celebrations here in New Zealand either. We are still in Autumn inching slowly into Winter, nice days but definitely getting cooler.Great weather for stitching inside.
I’ve never celebrated May Day, but I think it would be fun to see a May pole. Your quilts are really progressing nicely….love those flowers!
The display of May Day flowers in your yard is lovely. Almost a Better Homes & Garden collage! On May 1st, I’m aware of May Day, but don’t do anything special. Nice progress on your projects. Tech issues beyond our control can drive one nuts. Hope it’s resolved soon!
