This summer is cruising right along! We have been having fun with vacations, trips to the beach, and of course plenty of sewing here and there.
Before the 4th of July, my family took at week long camping vacation. For my husband and I this was our first trip in many years and the first big vacation that we took our girls on. (Spent a few years paying down debt and only taking staycations) We spent the first part in St. Ignace, MI with a trip to Tahquamenon Falls, then on to the lower peninsula.
I love camping. Taking a break from it all and slowing down to enjoy nature, what a treat! Here's to many more camping trips!
In addition to camping and general summer fun, I've been working on clearing out those small projects. I picked up Elizabeth Hartman's Legendary quilt pattern during the Shop the Top Quilt Shop hop. Bigfoot is everywhere in the UP, so it just makes sense to have a Bigfoot pillow for my living room. Plus I'm of the mindset, that you can never have too many pillows!
I also made the girls their own Bjorn Bear pillow (pattern also by Elizabeth Hartman) so the fighting over pillows could be put to a stop! Now each as a pillow to use on the couch and no more fighting, yay!
They just love their new pillows and had to have their picture taken with them! Now I just need to finish the pillows for my husband and myself.
Now to enjoy the rest of summer! Happy Stitching!
