Back From my Trip...

And back to work...that is working on my quilt.

We had a great time up north.  The weather the first few days was wonderful and I will show you some pictures later.

I spent the morning baste pinning my Scrap Squad quilt.  Hopefully I can get it quilted this weekend.   I can't show you my quilt......

If you have received the latest Quiltmaker magazine, go to page 50 and see the quilt that the Scrap Squad is working on.  Then you can go to Quiltmaker Magazine's Blog and see Melissa's Version of the quilt.  It is sooo beautiful.

Now back to my visit with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter.  The weather was so nice.  The sun was shining all though it was a little cool.  We spent the day in Negaunee at a park that is an old mining town and mine pits.  The buildings are all gone but the basements and stairs leading to the houses are still there.

There is something sad about a Stairway to nowhere.  But I am still attracted to them and so was Ashley.

We had a wonderful Easter.  Courtney fixed a wonderful dinner and we started the day off with an Easter Egg Hunt.

Ashley did a nice job decorating her eggs.

We knew our nice weather was due for a change.  We left to come home on Tuesday.  It started out sunny but very, very windy. 

We stopped by the shore of Lake Superior.  I almost got blown away by the wind while taking this picture of the waves.

After we went through Christmas, MI it started snowing.  By the time we got to Brimley to stop at the Casino it was a blizzard.

We drove in a snow blizzard all the to Grayling.  Then it changed to snow flurries.  I tell you it was great to get home.

I hope you liked my pictures and I hope you check out Quiltmakers blog.  Melzee's quilt it really beautiful.  Mine will go up after I finish  Which I hope will be soon.  I've already seen what our next quilt is to be and I love it.

Hope you have a great day.

Hugs, Cathy

It would be interesting to me to see all of those stairs to nowhere.
What a dramatic swing in the weather!

Welcome home Cathy! Glad you had a great trip, and that you were safe coming home! I love the pics of those stairs, wow what an interesting place. And the pics of the waves on Lake Superior...gosh I miss it..Ashley is so pretty, and looks so pleased with her eggs. We haven't done that for years.

Can't wait to see your quilt!
