On Mothers' Day, we drove out to see the Mission San Xavier Del Bac but I was uncomfortable going into the church because Mass was in progress and I wasn't dressed appropriately. People were worshiping and I thought if were me, I wouldn't want people parading through my church taking photos while I was trying to spend some time with God. Instead, I spent my time in the courtyards around the church and met a lovely cactus lady in the garden. She is a wise old soul.

I am overwhelmed with feelings of happiness for Grant who just graduated from The University of Arizona Law School. Last week in Tucson was beautiful. We had Goldilocks weather; not too hot and not too cool. We celebrated Grant's successes in law school at the honor ceremony where he received the Rose Davis Public Service Award. We enjoyed visiting all the places and restaurants that Blair and Grant like to go to, such as The Little Cafe Poca Cosa and Pho 88 Vietnamese Restaurant. Friday night was the law school commencement and my college sorority sister and friend Mary Murguia was the keynote speaker. It was so nice to reconnect with Mary after so many years. Saturday and Sunday were time with family. Deb and Mark came from Flagstaff and it was so wonderful to see them. The kids had a brunch on Saturday at their house and I loved sitting outside on their beautiful porch. Life is good.

It is snowing in Kansas today in May! I read in the newspaper that this isn't the first time it has snowed in May around here. So I don't feel so badly about sewing up 6 more wool hats this week....
Here is the first hat I've finished.
Simple, soft and warm hat in grey knit. This wool knit is soft and thick. Hand wash for care.
This hat is made from a previously loved wool sweater that I gently felted and cut apart. This hat will fit a head with a measurement of 21 to 22.5 inches.

I've subscribed to Maggie's Farm CSA again this year. This is the first batch of yummy yarn for the year from Barbara. The blue colorway is hand-dyed by Barbara.
"Maggie's Farm is a small diversified family farm. We have a handspinner's flock of Lincoln x CVM and Suffolk X Merino sheep who focus solely on growing gorgeous wool for knitters, spinners, felters, and weavers. We also have a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) for Knitters. The sheep of Maggie's Farm are big into growing community support with local knitters"
