Sunday Catch UP


Hi Everyone!  Lots going on here!  We left Feb 1st for 4 fun filled days in Wisconsin.  We stayed at a northwoods themed resort called Three Bears Lodge -- here is a picture of 2 of the 3 bears -- I think the 3rd bear had a little too much honey the night before, he was no wheres to be found for a picture, of course we saw him several times the day before!! 

Dear Hubby loves log furniture and log homes -- he was so thrilled that the furniture was log!!  Here is a picture of the bed -- Love it and love the quilt -- so simple but so nice!  Might have to find some nice plaids and a kakai type fabric and make a quilt like this for us this summer.

And here is a photo of the chair in the room, again northwood themed -- so Hubby wanted a picture of this so he can look for a similar one.


Of course a trip is not complete without a stop at a Quilt Shop!  And Yup we found one!  It was the Quilt Corner in Sparta -- such a nice shop - -2 floors of goodies and a very  nice staff.  I got a few goodies - afterall is was a vacation -- you gotta get a sovenoir or 2 :)

Sparta is known for being a biking town and they have this statue as you enter town, really neat and it is really tall!

Took this picture the last day -- it was at the lunch stop and Dear Hubby is a fisherman so this was just too cute!  Won't this look nice on the front porch of a log cabin!   That is what we thought!
I took along some Hexies to work on -- got nothing really done, but I have some prepped now for when I have time to do them.

My friend Kendra from Stone House Primitives - has ducks and she was so  nice to give me these eggs when we got back -- OH MY GOSH!  They are huge!  Compared to a chicken egg, but so good.  I made a mandarian orange cake with them it was delish!   Thanks Kendra!

Yesterday was a sewing day at my sister in laws -- 6 of us got together to sew, I got 2 blocks done from Bonnie Hunters mystery and I finished up the last clue I was on.   So at least I made some progress.  Today I have machine stitched a binding on a Christmas quilt I got back from Monica my friend the machine quilter, so tonight I will hand stitch it down.

Well that brings you up to speed with me....what have you been up too??

Happy Stitches!
