Northern Michigan

A weekend away! Oh yeah! We headed up to our cabin in Mio, Michigan on Saturday morning. Not much else to say. Fall is here.... Pics say it all, I suppose!

Garry and Cindy had fun, too! I did manage to work on some hexagons for my Grandmother's Flower Garden. It's moving along. I read, walked, sewed, was just nice to be somewhere quiet for a change. We did get the cabin winterized, but we're hoping we can go up there for Thanksgiving. I can't think of a better spot for it! Later....

I suck at bloggin' lately!

There! I've said it! Now on to the good stuff. Had the flu. Had a cold. Didn't enjoy either of them. Survived both and feel groovy now! Took a while to get my mojo back, but it's back in full swing now. Been working on this.....

Really happy with this one. Cindy, my teen daughter, loves it and for that reason...she may end up with it for Christmas.

Went on my first shop hop! Spent way too much, but loved every minute of it. My friend, Val, set it up. She has connections, so we ended up with the Senior Center Bus for the trip. So cool! Left at 8 am. Got home at about 8 pm. I have a list of the shops somewhere, because of course, Val printed an itinerary for everyone. She's so on top of everything. When I grow up, I wanna be just like her. Giggle! The first shop served us breakfast while we shopped. Egg casseroles, cinnamon roles, rocked! The last shop, we had pizza and hung out a while. I have several pics, but since I don't know all the women very well, they may not like it if I put them on here.'s Patti and Sharon in front of Ann Quilt Shop. This shop is in the middle of nowhere, Brown City, Michigan. I loved it. It's owner, a 96 year old woman, was a hoot. Her son and daughter both work there, too. The shop itself is in an old milk house and has been in business for 41 years. They were having an anniversary sale...40% off! Did I mention I spent too much? Hmmmmm....

And here's Val! I love this woman so much. I wish you could all have her for a friend. Not that I'm really willing to share her. Many of you took the time to pray for her and again, Thank you all. She's doing great lately. Power of prayer!

Oh! I almost forgot to tell you about this! No! I didn't make this one, but I'm gonna make one just like it because I bought the kit. Patti bought it too. Another friend I wish you could all have, but I'm not really willing to share her either! We thought we'd work on this one next spring/summer at Craft Day. No way could I get it done in time for fall of this year, since it's here now.

Well, I suppose that's all the news that is the news as they used to say on "Laugh In". You young 'uns won't remember that show but it was cutting edge back in the day.... Happy quilting and maybe I'll be able to post more regularly.
