Happy May Day!

I can't believe it's already the first of May. It's been an absolutely gorgeous spring day here. I got my flower beds mulched early and just came back from the dog park and am contemplating a nap before I start working on the paper I have due on Thursday. I've been avoiding it something fierce so I really need to just sit down and get going on it. I'm such a procrastinator.

I was not at all successful on the goals front in April - just too busy with school and everything else life has been throwing me these days. I did make some progress on Block 3 of C@HRH but didn't get it done as I'd hoped. Here's where I left off as of yesterday.

My goals for last month were as follows:

1. Finish Block 3 of C@HRH - Not done
2. Finish another Christmas ornament - Not even started!
3. Start Block 4 of C@HRH - Not a stitch

My goals for May are basically the same as April - maybe I'll have better luck!

1. Finish Block 3 of C@HRH
2. Finish a Christmas ornament
3. Start Block 4 of C@HRH

I hope you are enjoying a lovely May Day where ever you are. Two older ladies at the dog park were discussing the tradition of making baskets out of crepe paper and filling them with flowers and candy and secretly leaving them on neighbors doorsteps. It seems no one does that any more unfortunately. I think it would be a nice tradition to resurrect - who wouldn't like to find a pretty basket of goodies on the doorstep? Do they still have this tradition in your neighborhood?

My april goals didn't really get completed either. oh well! the stitching that you did do looks lovely.

I'd be glad to resurrect some May Day traditions. Would you help me remember next year? :)

I wouldn't worry about your goals - the fact that you got something done during the month is all that matters. I try to make goals, but never really attain them - but at least I try.

working in the yard counts too - seems there is less time for stitching when one can be outside!
