Happy May Day! :D

A Happy and Blessed May Day to you all! In some cultures, today is the first day of summer, and I am going to take advantage of the clear, yet slightly cool weather we are having today and I am going out rambling all over the Valley with The Hubmeister today. In a little while, we are going to the Spring Jamboree in Boulder City. It's held every year and it will be nice to get out of the house for a bit and take some pictures and check out the car show they are having.

Since I finished Summer Side yesterday afternoon, I pulled the fabric and threads for Autumn Side. I've barely started, so I won't be posting pics of that, just what I grabbed at the time. :P

Here's what I've decided on:

Fibers: DMC cottons, DMC Light Effects, Kreinik Very Fine Braid. I need some beads and some buttons, but I'm lacking in good autumn buttons. Hrmph. I will have to rectify that I suppose! :P

The fabric is a 28 count Monaco that I hand dyed. I call the color Guinness Foam Cream. ;)

050110 Floss Toss

Well, I best be off. The Hubmeister is shooing me off to the shower so we can get going. Happy May Day to you all and may the flowers be plentiful and the sun be warm upon you! :)
