May 31st down here, frosts in many places, further south it was –6.6C, then –4C, and the snow has given skiers a taste of a good season ahead.
Green was the colour for May, and true to form Green Ted made his way onto the platform for Capping Ceremony. He is a BSc Graduate, and for Victoria University in Wellington, Empire Blue the hood lining. As this finished quilt will be for a friend’s grand-daughter, and her son is an engineer, I might HAVE to do another Green Ted, with appropriate wording on his book. You might have to click on his photo to read the words.
Purple for June, so the batiks will get sorted again.
A few photos from the archives, in May over several years

Max, blissful slumber, 2017
Snow down south, 2013
Tom, 2009. On the Mariner’s Compass, the centre was still to be done.
Max, Tom and Toto have all left us now, but memories are always there, and they had much love given, and we received such affection from each of them for the time they lived with us.
Quotation of the day, author unknown.

you appreciate what you already have”
