Discovery….. inspiration from guests, friends and local fair!

I decided to stay right here..and spend my vacation close to home, and what a good time..it is not over yet!

If you are not from Michigan…hold up your left hand , palm down, travel up around the Pinkie up the side of the ring finger. up to the nail…..here is my location at the studio, over  and around the nail, up over the middle finger and north east into Lake Huron.   This were all the discovery and fun has taken place. That is how we describe “OUR Michigan” !

This includes Traverse City and the peninsula, up to Norwood and Charlevoix, north to Petoskey and over to Mackinaw Island. Every day was a new adventure nd discovery right here at home! New restaurants,  entertainment and new friends!

Time walking on the beach, hunting Petoskey Stones, concerts, poetry at Stone Circle, welcomed my new great grandson, Kristophar Cash, time with grand children and great grand children, canning, over night guests, kayaking, tubeing, dye class, “uncorked” painting class at the studio, antique shows, sunsets ……..!

I must say it has been one of the best summers of my life discovering right at home!

To top it off, new  friends have been made: Sharon Smithem, Ray and Tami Bier, Kathie and Steve Liebert, Tami Watson Small and Louise, Glory Wood, Steve, Julie and Cyd, friends at True North, what a wonderful gathering of talented people.

Judith came for 11 days from Va. and the time just flew by…crafting in the studio, dying wool, designing patterns, resaling, picking berries, creating fun summer meals, painting.

It is no wonder I sleep so well at night! Life could not be better!
