If you follow my blog, every summer my girl friends from college and I try to get together for a weekend. We usually go to Mary Beth's family cabin but, it was spoken for the weekend that all worked for us. We found someplace different to go to. We tried to do a VRBO but, by the time you can get everyone on the same page, the rentals get snapped up. I remembered a convention center in Green Lake, WI: Green Lake Convention Center. Arttie and I had gone to a stitching retreat there several years ago with the Garden of Stitches in Appleton. Jan and I checked into it and we found a cabin that met our needs: Albert IV. It worked pretty well. We did need to bring our own linens, initially it would have been provided but, because of Covid 19, we had to bring sheet and towels. Everything else was there.
We took a ride around the grounds. The deep roads are pretty rustic and the area is woodsy. It really is a lovely area. We were driving by and saw this guy hunting from a tree perch. Not sure what kind of hawk it is.
The view from the front window.
The living room. We usually spend the weekend, crafting, eating, drinking a little wine and shopping. This weekend shopping wasn't much in the picture. Only a few shops were open and we were busy until 430, so bagged it.
We scrap book the pictures from the previous year. We do other projects. Jan saw this one and we made little books using Post It pads. We used card stock type scrap booking paper and jazzed them up. Or as I like to refer to it as "festooning them". We stamped and paper artted them up.
I used the red house on the scissor fob and stuffed it with walnut shells and batting. Used wool on the inside of the needle book and attached a loop and ring to hook the scissor to I really like the way it turned out.
This came in the mail from Country Sampler in Spring Green. It is latest in the ABC School Girls Club. It's Shakespeare's Peddler Dolly Frank's Five Lion Sampler. The colors are subdue and right up my alley.
Finally, I started Adam and Eve Revisited by Kathy Barrick. I have a fondness for Adam and Eve's and this one fits the bill. I got the serpent done but, it doesn't look like much yet.
Keep on Stitching
