So here is my new fabric (Silver on the left, Feather on the right. Gray/Grey?):
And now I can get on with the project (after I do a couple of days of volunteering at my old school this week).
Other than that, nothing to show this week. The reason? My husband's birthday was on Sunday, which also happened to be Mother's Day in the US. So we decided to run away for a few days to Michigan's little finger (if you think of the the lower peninsula of the state as the shape of a mitten). Love it up there. The rest of this post is pictures if you're interested in a little travelogue. Here are some of our favorite stops along the way:
|Little Point Sable Lighthouse|
|Mission Point Lighthouse|
(Michigan has LOTS of lighthouses--more than any other state in the US.)
|Grand Traverse Lighthouse|
|Leelanlau State Park (Lake Michigan)|
|Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore|
|Warning sign at dunes|
|Water is 400 ft below|
|Fog rolling in|
|Sunset from our hotel in Traverse City.|
|Best place for whitefish in Michigan (Ludington)|
|Best place to eat that fish--the park across the street on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan|
|Best place for fine chocolates (Empire, Michigan)|
|Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Rural Historic District|
I'm linking up today with Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday, Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social. Buttons are to the right.
I hope to have lots of progress on the Big Quilt to share next week.
