Just some snapshots for you today! We are officially on vacation and I could not have been more ready for it.  Last week was super crazy busy and stressful, I'm looking forward to a little relaxation this week.  First we're spending some time on Lake Michigan with Michael's family, then we're heading to Ohio to see mine!

  12. i love your US embroidery. my MIL showed me the quilts she inherited from her mom and her great aunts and two of them made me think of you. one was embroidery of all of the state flowers and the other was embroidery of all of the state birds. both of them had the US, a flag and a bald eagle embroidered on them also. i think i need to start one for myself.
