Memorial Day Weekend Ramblings

Since I sent these off a week ago to Susan, my Project Spectrum postcard pal for May, I think it must be safe to show them here. Green has always been one of my favorite colors - in clothes, fabric, fiber, papers - so I was surprised that I had some trouble working with the color this month. I was really still stuck on the orange of last month. It'll be interesting to see what I do with June - the upcoming month of blue.

My daughter and I traveled to New Jersey this long weekend to hang out with my mom and dad, my sister and her family. The kids had fun. I did too although I had planned to go to Cummington. To make up for it I did visit Modern Yarn and Stix-N-Stitches in Montclair. Unfortunately Stix-N-Stitches was closed for the long weekend and I just browsed at Modern Yarn. I guess my thoughts were up there in Cummington with the sheep, the fiber and the bloggers.

We did visit the Iris Gardens which were beautiful in full bloom.
