Made in May


Seriously? It's June? I'm not sure I'm ready for the way time is flying. Clearly I'm getting old. Further proof is that my young cousins (twins - who I distinctly recall being quite small...) have turned 18 today. That does make me feel old.

Well enough of that depressing thought! Let's focus on something more cheery than age. Like... fabric! And quilts! And all things crafty! I actually quite look forward to doing a round up of what I've made each month. It's proof I accomplished more than just survived the day in/day out of being a mum to two young, very busy children!

So onwards... Here's one of those fab little mosaics rounding up the bits and pieces I managed in May! If you're interested in any particular ones, I've included links to the relevant blog posts below.
