Summer/Lake Michigan

Summer has been flying by. Tim and I took Aiden to KY in June and spent time with family and then Aiden stayed there while Tim and I traveled took our "honeymoon" vacation. We went to Michigan and spent time visiting the Great Lakes areas. We visited Sleeping Dunes

National Lakeshore that was beautiful. We spent four nights in Traverse City, MI and had some of the most amazing meals. I thought that Lake Michigan was wonderful. The water was so clear that it looked like Caribbean waters!
I have been stitching a bit. I finished my version of Prairie Schooler's "Santa's Night." I shortened the piece and used GAST threads. I have also been practicing on the sewing machine. I finished my first quilt block! The block is called Great Granny Square and I joined a group on FLICKR that is doing a SAL on this quilt block. The block is not perfect but I am extremely thrilled with it. Thanks to everyone for taking the time out of your busy day to peruse my blog. I will try to update again next week with some Lake Huron pics. Until then, may God bless you all and keep you strong.
