Was gone on vacation for eleven days.
You would find me behind the camera with my feet up (see them at the bottom of the picture?) gazing out at the beautiful sky, beautiful lake and my grandsons enjoying fishing and playing in the water most of the time.
We took a couple side trips to the dunes (MI)
In the forests for hikes.
In keeping with the quilting theme....I did make it to a quilt shop in Reed City, MI and picked up a few pieces of fabric.
The first three are for my Gathering Baskets that I have been collecting for quite some time now. The orange-y dots were for "just because I love them and the lighter fabric I thought would be a great backing for a baby quilt.
When the whole family was gone and I was on my own for a day, my girlfriend and I ran into Cadillac, MI to see an art exhibit that was spread out all over town.
This was a traveling bronze sculpture exhibit by I. Seward Johnson. It was fun running all over town looking for them.
This guy was in the park.

Cleaning up the park

Do not litter
I decided to join the ladies at the park ;D
Anyways, it was a very enjoyable exhibit.
Been home for four days and back to work to a new computer system, so this week has been hectic.
I have started a knitting project, but I have ripped it out three times. Right now I am trying to straighten out the mess of yarn that I just unraveled, so no pictures of this project yet. I refuse to give up on this one, so eventually I will show you some progress....not the unraveled mess that I have right now.
Hopefully, too, I can get back to my quilting this weekend. I am anxious to get back to my quilting rhythm that I had before vacation.
So, be patient, I will have some things to share soon.

One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017. I got this pattern from a b...
Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so. The first on...
This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
