Much merriment has been going on around here, we had a party for 3 graduates over the Memorial Weekend and a baby shower for Miss Betty. 
My sister came to town for all the festivities and we were busy every day doing a lot of things I can no longer recall, but I know we had great fun and it was all important doings. I did take Mary Margaret to the Abby. Oh, was she impressed! We walked Station Road, though we did not say the Stations of the Cross, we had very little time. Walked all through the Chapel building, picked up a few reading materials, then we walked around the back ( I had not been there) and a huge barn with a heard of cattle came into view. It was breath taking!!!! 
The first weekend in June we had another  family graduation and my daughter's birthday to celebrate! I am not use to this much socializing, we loved it but were in bed sooo early Sunday evening, I mean by 6:30! I slept all night too.
For Caitlin's birthday I made a BIG quilt! She and Jason love it, the quilt fits the bed.
It is  2inch squares sewed and sewed together, a great way to use up scraps, however, I feel I always end up with more scraps, how does that happen?
I casted on a new scarf, something I really needed..Ha Ha Ha!
It is a mindless knit, "shawl in garter stitch pattern". Easy peasy, the edge has a simple crochet stitch that gives the shawl a very elegant finish look.
I'm using yarn from my stash- another bonus!
It doesn't look as if this weekend will be a slow one either, The Wool Festival in Estes is Saturday and Sunday. Next summer, since I will be retired, I plan on taking at least one class at the Wool Fest. 
How is your summer shaping up?
Keep safe and be happy! Till next post......
