“Then you have to remember to be thankful; but in May one simply can’t help being thankful…that they are alive, if for nothing else.”
― Lucy Maud Montgomery
This month I am thankful there appears to be a light at the end of COVID. Just this weekend I was able to enjoy my first gathering with friends with everyone unmasked – all of us are now fully vaccinated.
At the last Board meeting, we discussed how the guild could return to in-person meetings. This has been a topic of discussion essentially since the pandemic started! We still don’t know for sure when we’ll be able to be together in person, and it really depends on what parameters are set by both Montgomery County and the church where we meet. We really are hoping for in-person meetings in the fall, but are also hedging our bets by looking for speakers who are able to do Zoom presentations if we are not able to physically meet.
May is the month where I struggle with competing priorities in the garden. SO MANY WEEDS and I have the poison ivy rash as a badge of honor in the battle. So many exciting new things to plant! I’ve already shared a bunch of my volunteers in my neighborhood, and have been given a few as well.
I’ve fallen off my “sew every day” wagon a little, and would like to start back with that routine. I am making progress on my rainbow quilt for our Service Projects Challenge, how about you? In May, all of the colors seem brighter, and that helps send me back into the sewing room.
Yours in quilting,
