A Book Review


Hello, it's Monday...another dreary wet day, Yesterday it was much of the same weather so my husband and I and his sister and two boys piled in the car and headed to the outlet mall. We had a nice lunch and alot of fun! my little nephew Logan is so funny... After shopping all day I was cold and tired, so I put on my jammies and climbed into bed and finally got around to reading the two books I had ordered. A couple weeks ago I had read Allison's blog at my cozy home about the books she had ordered and I was inspired...One of them was Where Women Create, and the other was called Romantic Home Sewing. I really liked both of them. But I liked Romantic home sewing the best, it was full of sewing ideas and patterns that I can't wait to try....from purses to lining old wire locker baskets...I will have to post my new creations as soon as I am finished. It was a nice way to end a fun but tiring day! take care, Gail

I love the idea of lining old locker baskets! Enjoy looking at these pretty books over and over, that's one of my favorite things to do!

Your books sound like something I would like! I'll see if I can find them.

I want to comment on Split Rock Lighthouse. We visited there 5 years ago, this coming September. We were at a cabin in Grand Rapids. One of our side trips from fishing was a trip to Duluth and up the North Shore. A gorgeous drive. At Split Rock, We walked down to the shore and back up to the lighthouse. We have a photo of the two of us, with Split Rock Lighthouse in the background. We enjoyed our visit to the lighthouse and MN, very much.

We have a watercolor print of Split Rock Lighthouse framed and matted and hanging in our hearth room as a wonderful reminder of our visit! Thank you for writing about one of our happy vacation memories!
