lovely May

is a month of greens
of growth
of promises for the future
of new life
a garden full of delicate little blue flowers

(a try out of my new Derwent Inktense pencils and a bit of water)

I even made a quilt once, called "Remember May"

(I try to remember
in the gray of November
that spring green day in May)

Our daughter finished yesterday a lovely felting task:
a small rainbow baby blanket
(especially inspired by the felt work of Jana)

It wasn't an easy project, but all worked out very well !

the first layer made,   hearts cut out and a backing of very thin silk

playing "quatre mains",   and removal the auxiliary threads (grrrrr)


But in Holland
May 4 
is also a day of awareness :
remembering the dead
from world war II
and wars after that

lovely May
