Hurray, Hurray, the month of May

Does this mean that we can actually qualify for some really decent spring weather?  I sure do hope so - as I have had more than enough of the grey and dreary and windy days.  Last week-end was one of our RV outings - as always just stupendous fun - and we got a chance to head into the fields near LaConner.  Anyone from around here knows that means tulips - this time of the year.  So enjoy a couple of sites of that,

Dutch skies, with a couple of kites flying

Quite, quite spectacular.  Then Saturday was a trip into LaConner to the Quilt and Textile Museum, always a lot of inspiration.

At the moment there are two exhibits: Deep Spaces curated by Larkin Van Horn.  And Contemporary Art Quilts by Carol Taylor.

Certainly not the sort of quilts that I make - but very interesting and fun to see.  Makes one think about what you CAN do.  Lastly a warm remembrance to our quilting friend who died last year,
What a week-end!

Yes, I'm agree with you not my kind of quilting style either, but it's always interesting to see what other people make. But personally I prefer the old collection downstairs. bye bye Caro

Beautiful pictures. If it was not for the mountains I would say they were taken overseas!
