A much needed break

Had a wonderful weekend in Green Bay.
Our first trip to Door County.
Beautiful. Just Beautiful.
Hope to return in cherry season.

Here are a few "treasures" I found.
Doesn't this little black box
 remind you of the Singer Featherweight case?
Even came with the cute little key for the lock.

Filled with old sewing notions.
Really, how could I pass it up?

Of all the Door County souvenirs available in the shops
I came home with this hand embroidered flour sack dish towel. 
The clerk said the owner's mother hand stitches these for the shop.
Really now, that is soooo me.

We went to see John Pinette in concert.
Look for him on Comedy Central.  
You won't be sorry.

Last Tuesday, I spent the day quilting with friends.
A new retreat house opened in our area
"The Grove"
 and we rented the place for the day.
Nine hours of sewing.
And laughing.
And eating.
Here is the recipe for the coffee cake I brought.
I mixed it up before I left and baked it there.
Ohhh, the smell of cinnamon baking.
It was a hit.
Hope to get my sewing room put back together next week.
I feel the need sew!

Hope all is well with you.
Thanks for stopping by.
