Happy May Day!!

I remember participating in May Pole celebrations in grade school. Crepe paper was used and it was always so colorful. It wasn't in a field of daisies like this picture but it is engraved in my memory as a very exciting experience. The weaving in and out of our streams made such a beautiful braid down the pole.

I received an email this morning letting me know I won an embroidery prize at Lovestitches.
I am so excited to win her darling embroidery, it really is a great way to start my day. Thanks Steph for sharing your talent so generously.

I have been stitching and sewing away on my PIF and Prim Porch Swap, they are fun projects and it is exciting seeing them come together. Both will come to fruition and be mailed before the end of this new month. So no pictures of anything to share. Sorry, but later I will.

Thank you for all your helpful comments on my last post. I have shared and discussed them with Joe, they really have been so helpful, giving us experiences and solutions to discuss.
My medications have been helpful for my migraines, and my night swets have eased off with the headaches. I have been reading on rebound headaches, which can be caused by taking to much medication, to frequently. What?...... so I have put up with the little headaches and stopped taking the excedrin migraine that had been helpful. And they have seemed to go away too, for now anyway. It's all a learning process and things work differently for all of us.

Take care and enjoy the warmer spring weather we are having. We have so many birds right now, I love listening to all there singing and chattering, soon there will be all the babies.

Spring blessings,

Carrie

I never participated in a Maypole celebration thing. Wish our school would have had such a thing. Sounds like it would have been fun.

Happy May Day to you. Your post made me think back to when my girls were little...we made a Maypole in our backyard for them and their friends...and then had a garden tea party after they had the Maypole celebration.
Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Thanks Carrie for all you positive comments. Nice to know someone's listening!:) Have you ever tried Accupunture for your headaches? It's awesome for so many things.

Glad you are feeling better.

It was so much fun to catch up on some of your recent posts just now. I have not had a great deal of time lately to spend at the computer--so this is a real treat!!

We used to celebrate May Day with a Maypole in my little country grade school (a verrrrry long time ago!). I think they're wonderful and reminiscent of simpler times.

I hope you've continued to feel better. I used to take HRT, but went off it when the studies results were made public. I just wish I had my very own, original hormones BACK! Why do we have to lose them? It's just not fair.

quilting/applique is great therapy!
helps keep me calm when I have a headache.
