Melancholy Monday

Melancholy Monday

This is our last Monday here in Michigan! Boo hoo! Our last day with this amazing view from our front porch. Those blue skies!

The weekend was filled with such fun though and I will just leave you all with this montage of photos!

I hope you all have a very happy Monday! As for us? We are soaking up one more day of Pure Michigan joy!


Vacation Friday’s

Vacation Friday’s

So, the only knitting I have even done is to work briefly on this long-in-progress hat. It has been cold enough, I am wishing it was long-completed!

Tomorrow, a day of outdoor beer drinking festivities! But, I do have some links this week!

That is all I have for the week! Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!

This week’s things are all about Michigan!

Thing 1:

So much good beer. I feel like I am in the Microbrewery Capital of the World. (Okay, maybe not, but #5 is not a bad spot to vacation in!) We are making the rounds and will catch up with all we missed on Saturday at the Empire Hops Festival!

P.S. We have almost tried all the beers on this list…really, so much good!

Thing 2:

Okay, all this beer is best accompanied by good food, and we are working on that as well! But, this “smokehouse sampler” was amazing!

Thing 3:

I love when a “fix” works – and adding a repeat to Nekia was just the thing. It is the perfect length now! (AND, Lake Michigan…I mean really!)

Those are my things this week! Want to see what others are sharing this week? Head to Carole’s to check them out!

Unraveled Wednesday, October 4

As you can see not much knitting has been happening on vacation. However, there has been amazing scenery, awesome meals, and LOTS of family time happening. Which makes me miss knitting not at all!

On the reading front, I am still reading 4 3 2 1, but I only have about 300 pages to go! I seriously love this book! Hopefully, I will be done sooner than later as I just got the notification from the library that John le Carre’s new novel is available!

What are you knitting this week?

September Stitching

September Stitching

I am not sure I am liking the grey linen for this quarter. It is a little darker than I thought it would be, but I am forging ahead with it.

However, in September, I learned some new-to-me techniques of applique. Wool felt is truly a thing of beauty. I had no idea at all, but wow – I really loved working with it!

I also loved using darker color threads as my world changed dramatically this month. The trees are changing, plants are dying, and things are settling in for a new season.

One thing is certain, each day’s stitching was a high point of my day. And, learning new things is always good!
