Summer time!

Wow!  This last school year was full of challenges, opportunities for growth and reflection.
Now, it is summer break.  
Today, I'm painting my bathroom.
I hate painting. Ask anyone who knows me.
Well, except for spray painting with Marsha.  
We'll spray paint almost anything. 
Furniture.  Big pieces of foam core for Nettie & Friends.  
I like that kind of painting.  I'm not fond of painting my bathroom.

So thank goodness I had a chance to get out of town last week
to attend the MN Quilt Show in St. Cloud...
Marsha had a beautiful quilt in the judged area.
It is constructed using those wonderful Dargate reproduction fabrics we adore.
It was quilted by Randi Helling of

After enjoying the quilt show and a lovely dinner with friends, we made a plan
to go to the Munsinger and Clemons Gardens (
in the cool of the morning the next day.  
More beauty.

And since we had a chance to get out of town, Marsha and I kept going.
We had sweet little 'suite' in Itasca State Park.  Can you believe neither of 
us had ever stepped across the Headwaters of the Mississippi?  We did it!
We also saw the Minnesota State Flower in full bloom. 
They were blooming all over the park!!!

Ahhh, what a lovely beginning to summer break. 
Now, back to painting my bathroom...  
When that's done, more adventures!
