May Day

Does anybody else remember "dancing around the May Pole"? Why did we do that? And I also remember making posey pockets and leaving them on our mother's door knobs on May Day. Why did we stop doing that?

I am grabbing the flag Norma at Random Stitches threw down on her post the other day, it looks like fun!

You have to use the first letter of your first name to answer each of the following. One word only. They have to be real places, names, things...nothing made up! Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

WHAT IS YOUR NAME
Lyn

4 LETTER WORD
Love
(is there any other?)

VEHICLE
Lincoln
(I wish)

TV SHOW
Lucy
(showing my age)

CITY
Louisville
(hello, DD#1)

BOY NAME
Louis
(my grampa)

GIRL NAME
Liberty
(my grand daughter)

OCCUPATION
Librarian
(this is my dream job)

SOMETHING YOU WEAR
Lingerie
(with diamond necklaces :-)))

FOOD
Lobster
(dreaming of butter running down my forearms)

SOMETHING IN THE BATHROOM
Lotions
(tons of jams and jellys in there)

REASON FOR BEING LATE
Llama
(I hate when they break down on the highway)

SOMETHING YOU SHOUT
licketysplit!
(this was the hardest one!)

I'm going to challenge you all, (yes, you too) to do this one!

This was a good day to do this, because Blogger would not let me add any pictures. I got some new "ethnic" looking prints and you will love them, as soon as I can show them!

Hope all your Llamas are running good today!
Lyn

Oh, you did so much better than I did! I will use the excuse that hte letter N is not a fun one and my lack of creativity was apparent.

I am so happy to know that I am not the only one who goes around in my nighty with my diamond necklace on. I mean, where else would we wear it....the fabric store?

Thanks Lyn, this was fun.

I just read Norma's comment. Oh, so that was who I saw in the fabric store!

What a beautiful name your grand-daughter has.

I just love all the words that you came up with. I have been reading back over your blog and I am amazed at your work. It is beautiful. I love your purple quilt. What kind of sewing machine do you have?? I have made several quilts but just haven't attempted to quilt a large quilt on my sewing machine. I usually either send them off to the longarmer, tie them, or hand quilt a few of them. Maybe that is why I have sooooo many tops..

Great word choice Lyn. I've played also. By the way, you're the youngest looking Granny I've seen!
