This weekend was the long awaited getaway to Kat’s cottage in upper Michigan.
Kat has a series of most excellent posts chronicling our days and activities…do check it out.
I am very happy about finishing this:
#148, a very cool quilt for a very cool almost 2 year old boy, who will be entertained with his most favorite things…..cars, trucks, motorcycles, construction equipment, and tractors. I told his mom that I wanted him to use this quilt right up…love it to death. Then I will have an excuse to make him another with his next favorite obsession as a theme.
So anyways….during the drive up north, we passed cucumber fields and a pickle factory. Somehow, this got one of us thinking about a pickle plant explosion, and the sight of pickles shooting up into the air…..flying pickles, plummeting our car. So for no other reason, we named our group of 5 the “Flying Pickles” for the weekend. I think its perfect…random and a bit quirky. Just like me.
Meet The Flying Pickles……left to right…..me, Sandy, Kat, Kat’s handpainted totem pole, Karen and Babe:
Here are a few of my photos:
Shoreline scenes….Lake Huron…..
Everyone made a doll this weekend, except me….I was fixed on finishing the quilt….but these dolls are the keepers of all the good memories of a fun creative “Flying Pickle” weekend.
