Back home but on Staycation till Monday

We stayed at a "hunting lodge" in the woods. It really is a friend's Deer hunting lodge but it is very nice and not rustic. It was a great getaway. My guys shot guns as DS wants to deer hunt this year, so he needed to learn how and safety etc. I sewed and relaxed.

We went to the Amish section of Northern Michigan and bought baked goods. We enjoyed the country side.

We also went looking for the elk that live here. We found them in a field that I haven't seen them in for many years. And guess what, we forgot our camera. Here is a internet photo of what I'm talking about

I sewed the disappearing 9 patch. It is about 37 inches square. I sewed a Valentines table runner about 23 by 34 inches. I hand sewed some yo-yo's together until I lost my needle. I also cut out a mushroom pincushion in felt to go with my gnome's. I also sewed some block exchange blocks see below.

I signed up for a needle case swap on hand did's and I am excited about that.
I am off for a few more days and plan to do a lot of sewing and house cleaning.
