UFO Busting #63

What did I learn last month?  May waits for no one.  Happy first of June!  May was a month of party and celebration with little time for sewing.  I'm hoping June brings some catch up time and slower days.  First up, the daughter is all graduated and stuff!

The event went off without a hitch and I am happy to report I did not cry like a baby.  I am too proud of her to shed tears of sadness.  It's been a long challenging year and together we both got through it.  She's not so much leaving my nest, just spreading her wings and finding her own way.  I cannot wait to watch her soar.  And I'm always there to give an extra push when she needs it in life.

My nephew also graduated in May with his masters degree.  Now it's time for him to seriously look for a j-o-b and join the rest of us adults in the day to day working world.  To commemorate that event, Aunt Tish decided to break out the pots and pans and make him some "The Shit Just Got Real" cupcakes.

Maybe not the perfect Pinterest win, but not a fail either.

All those squiggles inspired a quilting motif decision on the Lusty Month of May Quilt.

In other exciting news, the quilt is finished!!!! I did manage to finish before the May 31st challenge deadline, however constant rain storms in our area has prevented me from getting any decent pictures of the quilt.  So hopefully today (weather says sunny) I can snap some pictures and post later in the afternoon about the quilt that kept me hot and bothered all month.

Now it's time to see what you were up to last weekend.  Tracie at Riceford Streams had me seeing stars and the Northern Lights.

This quilt started for her over 11 years ago, but man was it worth the wait.  All those bright batiks just glow against that black background.  It's like a light show in the night sky.  Make sure you pop over and congratulate Tracie on her UFO finish and take in all the beautiful wonder.

Next up we have Kate at Life in Pieces as her Daisy Chain Mystery comes together.

The weather may have been giving Kate fits, but she has been able to sneak in sewing time to help this daisy chain bloom.  Seeing Kate's hanging on her design wall, really makes me want to get mine all stitched up too!

Now let's see how you spent your last week in May.  Link up below and tell us all about it.

Congrats on surviving graduation and congrats to your daughter. Hope you get lots of sun today. It was a surprise to check out your blog and see my quilt posted. Thank you. I've started stitching mine together, not sure I'm going to make day one of the linky party Alison is hosting.

Hi Tish! Tears don't have to mean sadness - relief, gratitude, thankfulness, and good 'ole happiness can cause tears as well. All of those emotions may have happened with your daughter's graduation. I cannot wait to see the May finished quilt because the reverse side looks just fabulous! Woot Woot to better weather to allow all of us to take some long awaited photos outside! ~smile~ Roseanne

Congratulations on the graduation! I really like the wavy quilting - I might do something like that on my drunkard's path quilt. I haven't decided yet.
