The Merry Month Of May! Happy Beltane!

It's May! It's May! The lusty month of May! That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.

It's here! It's here! That shocking time of year When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!

It's May! It's May! That gorgeous holiday When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad!

It's mad! It's gay! A libelous display! Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks. Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!

(my thanks to Camelot and July Andrews for the earworm)

Frankly, I'm delighted to bid adieu to April - what a month. My heart is heavy with the loss of life over the past week in the southern states, including those in my own. While I know that May is usually the worser (sorry!) month for tornadoes, my hopes are high that we're turning a corner and will have fewer, and calmer skies. Wouldn't it be delightful if Mother Nature decided to cut us a little slack?

We had a great weather weekend, but alas, I was inside most of it. Still a lot was accomplished, and there's a post to read on Nana Sadie's Place for more info on that. Here's what my Knitnana readers are mostly interested in hearing about:

Two bags made this weekend, the blue Hoffman cats and yarn Mavis Knitting Bag, and the Michelle Meow Teabird Spindle Bag (with wristlet). A few odds and ends of accessories were completed as well, and a new design is in the works, so stay tuned...

For those wondering if the Nook cover might make it into Nana Sadie Rose's offerings, I think it might be a safe bet, but perhaps will be tweaked just a mite before you see hang on a bit, okay?

Maybe your month of May is merry, but ours has started with two days straight of snowflakes in the air. At least they had the decency to not last once they hit the ground, but still!

Happy May to you, too! I can only hope it'll be better than April was. I'm loving those bags, and so glad that people order the spindle bag from time to time - it's good to have such a nice one on the market!

Didn't Richard Harris sing that? Maybe in one of the movie versions. Now I have it in my head though, thanks! I love that song.

Happy May Day! (even if it's the 2nd May day...)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
