Happy Campers top finished!


I have finished my little quilt. I love it, it used one charm pack and a honey bun. There are four squares of the
charm pack left. I think it is really eye catching and will look great on the back of my couch! I will get a tutorial written for this.




View of Lighthouse keepers home from top of lighthouse

View of Lake Huron from Top of the Old Lighthouse
We spent a wonderful day around the Alpena area. We stopped and the Old Prisq Ilse lighthouse and climbed to the top. Even with the rain the view is fantastic! This is one of my favorite keepers cabins. It is so rustic. There is another lighthouse that we will get to within a mile of the old lighthouse, the rain became too much Sat.

Today is back to work, back to my eating plan and exercise program. I need to get focused on these things because vacation two weeks ago set me a bit off track and that's OK. The ice cream yesterday was great by the way...and that wasn't on a vacation.

Still love your quilt. And we also love lighthouses. One year we went to Maine and visited about half of the lighthouses on the coast. And climbed all of the ones we were allowded to. Great fun.

Love this quilt! I have a bunch of American Jane fabric lines and this would be a fun way to put them together - thanks for the inspiration!

I love your quilt. I saw it over on Design Wall Monday and came here first to have a look. I also have never been to a lighthouse. I am south of you but could maybe get there in a couple of days. Thanks for the great post!
