I can hardly believe that it is May already! I’m also wondering how everyone else did with their OMG.

I had planned on getting all 3 quilts done for the fundraiser for the golf course. I did not get even one finished!

This is the first of the three and is a completed flimsy. I managed to sandwich and baste it.

The other 2 quilts are not yet finished to the flimsy stage. One is pieced but still needs borders. The third quilt is still blocks and I need to decide on a final layout.

This month was our annual fundraiser for our Guild. I wound up working at the Guild every Tuesday and Thursday in April getting things ready; measuring-and pricing all of our donated fabrics, notions, wool, books and equipment. Last Sunday was our event. In 4 hours we raised over $5000.00 which means we can fix our fence, put in some shelving to store equipment, and perhaps fix the roof on our storage shed. It was so much fun! As soon as it was over, I scooted home, loaded the car and picked up DH to head to Vancouver for his appointments. We only got as far as Princeton before we were both tired.

Being in the city meant we got a bonus visit in with our dog. Bam lives with DH’s daughter now. He is a city dog! We grabbed him and headed out for a walk to the beach. It was fun to throw rocks and see him chase them into the water. Bam is so addicted to the game he would keep going until he drowned. He just doesn’t want to quit. He is getting old now so we only let him play for a while. The arthritis is setting in and our poor old man suffers if we don’t stop him. He is such a joy to spend time with. He just makes the stress of dealing with doctors, clinics and making decisions so much easier to handle. I sure miss this boy. DH wanted to dog nap him but we can’t have pets where we live now.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to read my post, 🥴. Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Not to make you feel bad but I know that dog misses you guys too. Enjoy the doggy hugs of leaning against your legs and wet kisses when you get them 🙂

    1. Thanks Robin. It doesn’t make me feel bad to know Bam misses us! He loves DH’s daughter and she and her Dad have always shared custody! He just has to be with her when we are home in the summer. He gets to be with us from November to the end of March. 😄


  2. Hi Mary! Awwww, how fun that you get to spend time with Bam (and your daughter too, of course). It seems no matter the age of the dog, they will keep on going until they drop. We have to be smarter and know when to call it quits – or when we decide enough! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Good morning Roseanne. Yes spending time with Bam and DH’s daughter was a real bonus yesterday! Just what the doctor ordered after all the tests. He is such a gentle soul but still plays like a puppy. I wish I had one tenth of his energy. 🥴 Carol
