Then ... hummmm.... Oh then I was trying my hand at Japanese Sashiko when my 9 yr. old son decided that he wanted to also try his hand at it too. So I dropped everything that I was working & got him going. He did a simple plaid design on a 6.5" squares in an afternoon. It is hard to tell but there are 2 colors in his plaid. So far I am working on my second square of the same size.

I actually got away for a day, which is a rare event let me tell ya! My neighbor took my son for a couple of days and the other half & I went a couple hours North to meet a cousin & wife. We managed to get tickets to see Garrion Keilor at the Interlochen Center of the Arts. You might know know the name from the "Prairie Home Companion" radio show. It was great, and a Live Broadcast. They also used some of the students from the academy as part of the show. We got some great seats and pictures of the stage. We also got to go Don's for the BEST Shakes!!! And the price is to smile about... $5.35. I got a picture of it with my son's Flat Stanley. These things are monsterous.... like 64oz. of crazy goodness!!! I had a Cherry Shake which was sooooo right as it was Cherry Festive in Traverse City. TC is right up the road a few miles....but so crowded we stayed away. We did get to see Traverse bay. Even on a clouded gray morning it was pretty.
