So! May is unbelievably almost gone! BabyGirl is home for the summer and it's so much fun having her home. Except for the laundry part ... She and her SweetBoyFriend always keep it very interesting here.

We've had some very warm sunny days already, and a lot of overcast and sometimes rainy days. I love a good storm!

May and June are typically very busy months for our family, so I'm not surprised that I haven't stitched as much as I would like. I have worked a little on One Seed for Another. I still need to order the one green silk needed for the grass, vine and one of the trees in the part I've stitched, but I'm just working around it for now. (The picture is small, but Blogger was cutting off the image on the right side for some reason.)

Mom and I also recently took a little road trip to a neighboring town and visited an antique store and a quilting supply store. On the way home we stopped at a wonderful locally owned pizza restaurant, Jonah on Johnston's, and had lunch. Not only is their pizza fantastic, they also bake wonderful breads and pastries.

More food related activities (I promise I have done more than eat since my last post!)

Dinner on the lake after a day of rain. It was a cool evening so we ate great catfish on the restaurant's screened porch. I only had my phone camera, so the pictures aren't the greatest, but it was pretty evening, clouds and all.

And one more food related activity! Friends from the office got together on day off to make cannelloni in the office kitchen. Our very talented Betsy orchestrated the event and the cannelloni was perfection! (phone camera again...)

So, that's it for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Summers are always busy with the kids back on our doorsteps. I love your progress on One Seed. It's on my short list! And all that talk about food has made me hungry!
