out and about

Yesterday we celebrated not going to the dentist for over 48 hours by taking a little sightseeing drive around thepeninsula that is Door County. We didn't find much action, it is sort of a deserted time of year here for the most part, with many businesses closed for the winter. We even had a hard time finding a spot for lunch!
Nancy stopped here for a photo op, trying out her new camera. And here is a good shot of my girls---
A few more completed projects--
a little zipper bag from scraps
binding completed on a quilt that will likely be donated to a breast cancer auction
4 little "mug rugs", although these are big enough to be a mini-placemat! These are made from a pattern by Sweetwater Street and included a personalized printed label
and some progress on my batik hap quilt, which has been a few years in the making. These are some of the pieces so far.
And that just about sums it all up for now. We have started packing up our stuff for loading up in the AM, then a drive to Chicago. Of course, we are right in the middle of Packers and Bears territory, and I have heard some rumor about a game this weekend? Actually, we can't turn on the TV without being bombarded with Green Bay propaganda, which will change to Bears propaganda tomorrow! We will try to steer clear of the mess!

That batik piece is incredibly beautiful. I'd love to see it in person, or at least see a close-up of it.
