It has been a long time since I have made a post and I apologize. Life has been very crazy for the past 5 weeks or so. We welcomed our newest grandson, Kingsley into our family on September 23. Congratulations to Heather, Shawn and big sister Allie. It seems like I have spent an awful lot of time in the car lately. Kingsley was born in Petoskey, about 80 miles west of here and we made a couple of trips from here. He also had a Dr's appointment in Cheboygan, about 80 miles north of here. Steve and I traveled to Lansing for the Michigan Quilt Networks Annual Showcase and I drove to Gaylord for our MQN Region 2 meeting. The colors have been absolutely beautiful this year and I have really enjoyed being a "leaf peeper." I also totally enjoyed a 3 day quilt camp with one of my sisters and several of my quilting buddies and two trips to the apple farm with two of our granchildren. Today was the day to get things finalized for a retreat that starts here at Thunder Bay Resort tomorrow. This will be our second to the last retreat. We will host a UFO retreat here next weekend, then we will close the retreat doors. I have truly enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people and making some great friends along the way. I will try to do a posting during or right after this weekends retreat.
