May daize

The weeks have flown by since my last blog update. So much has happened. And it's starting to feel like spring.

We have a new grandson, Nathan Alexander, born April 22nd. Being a grandparent is wonderful. Here are Mom, Dad, Noah and Nathan.

Stitching progress has been a bit slow. The mermaid is almost finished...ran out of thread and have to order more. For such a small project it really seemed there was enough floss....

I'm almost done my project for the ILCS summer ornament exchange. There is backstitching to do and then finishing.
Health wise doing reasonably now except for a vertigo issue that started last week. It comes, it goes...really don't enjoy my world spinning.... I can still stitch!!
Mother's Day was wonderful. We shared a late morning brunch with the family. The roses pictured above are part of the bouquet from the kids and grandchildren.
This past weekend my husband and I started to get the patio and garden ready. Zeller's had mixed hanging baskets on sale pre Mother's Day, $9.99 each and they are reasonably established......compared to buying starter plants this year, it's great. The game plan is to have cluster of plants throughout the patio rather than a large row down the length of the area. The dollar store had some cute wooden bird houses. So it's just a matter to paint them (and yes, it's for us rather than the birds).
thanks for stopping by.
till next time
