Just a little over a month til...

May for Me!

Last week I alluded to some fun that we have coming up in May.
Marcia, of Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting, had the great idea to have a month of sewing just for me...
because she knows that I have a list a mile long of things that I wanted to make..but never get to do because of sewing for others. (Don't we all have one of those lists?)We emailed back a forth and decided that we'd make a blog event of it..and invite you to join along!

I plan to make some items just for me out of this book:

(Like the sewing tote bag on the front, 
as well as several projects inside.)

I also want to make some Peanuts embroidery squares for my Peanuts quilt.

As well as planned projects, I am already working on some great posts for May!
I have a May for Me page up top. 
It is ready and waiting for the names of those of you that would like to join along.
You don't have to be a quilter. You don't even have to be Crafty.
You just have to be ready to have a great month!
Will you join us?

Here is a button you can add to your blog. 
Just save it as a photo, then when it asks for a link,
link it back to my May for Me page:

I love the idea - need a little break and there are a lot of ME things I could think of doing - and May is my birthday!

I would love to join and I think it is a GREAT idea. But I don't know that I will be doing much sewing at all in May as I think that is when we are going to be moving.
