This fabric cone was made using organic batting, vintage/antique laces, collage image, oodles of mop buttons and seam binding. Last week I was hiding out in the air since we hit record temps again.
Although on Tuesday, I made a very spur of the moment trip up north. The temps where more than 20 degrees cooler and for 2 days we were able to escape the awful heat here. My brother also went in his own car and we stayed in Mackinaw City, my favorite place on earth. The Bridge, water and clean air…what more could I ask for? Hubby couldn’t do much since his knee surgery was only 3 weeks ago. Hailey met a Great Dane named Brutus…I have never seen one in real life up close. WOWSERS! they are big!
I did get to see McGulpin Lighthouse which opened to the public again in 2009. I couldn’t climb the tower (vertigo problems) but, my brother and I hiked down the trail about 1/4 mile to Lake Michigan and saw the amazing bridge. This will be my only little vacation this year most likely, but I am so grateful we were able to do it.
More medical tests coming for my brother the end of this month and doctor visits. I appreciate all the love, support and prayers during this time. Some days are easier then others…right now it is more the fear of not knowing.
