Summer has come & gone. There was music, camping & art among the activities. A fun ride.
Hard to believe it's been 4 months since my last post.
The above image is from "da UP". Flew to Houghton/Hancock for the Farm Fest music week end. The venue was a delightful Farmstead down a long dirt road. Laid back, great performers, interesting food, a great cause.
We returned to North Fox Island a few times for camping, kayaking, butterfly watching and general merriment with other pilots & crew.
Went blueberry picking 3 times to bag & freeze about 18 Lbs.
Been making Blueberry Shrub with some of them. More on that in a later post.
As promised back in June, here are a few snaps from a wonderful class with
Christine Mauersberger in Petoskey. I've been drawn to hand stitching lately
& was thrilled to be able to take a class with this artist I admire.
Some work by another student in the class.
This was an image in one of Christine's books used for inspiration.
Recently I noticed this stump I see on may walks could be my own
jumping off point for some stitch work.
In the days to come I'll share some things happening in the studio now that fall has arrived.
Or is it winter? There were flakes in the air yesterday.
There will be dolls, pin cushions, a deer skull, & a look at a fabulous quilt artist.
