May Day

Yesterday our little town had the raising of the May day pole. It was a great event and the weather could not have been more perfect. I was finally able to just sit and enjoy the sun, our neighbor was even nice enough to point out how white I was.



The town dancers decorated the pole to some traditional German music, and the band was wearing all the traditional outfits as well. There was beer, brats, and just a lot of fun.



And in case you don't care...

here is what i'm working on now. corinnea has inspired me to do what i've been dreaming of forever. She pulled out her awesome zig zag quilt reminding me of the rainbow one that was lost in my mind. So here is a little sneak preview...

Ooh! That's a pretty design! But don't they normally do the May pole thing on May Day? I'm hoping to catch the one here in Vaihingen... we'll see....
