We're Back!

At the cottage, that is. I don't think I have shown you my view when I am hooking or sewing:

I I so lucky or what? My husband had this house when we married. Which should be a big lesson to any single people reading this blog. Find someone with a house on a lake. Looks will faded and you will probably run out of things to talk about at some point, but a house on a lake will be there FOREVER! The only sad part about this whole scenario is that I still have a job downstate--well that is not exactly sad because I do have a job and believe me, living in the Detroit area I know I am lucky to have a job. However, it does mean that I have to leave our little happy place in two weeks while my husband, who is retired, gets to stay up here. (One day I will explain our marriage, but I think it can be summed up in the words of a good friend of mine--"You two have the strangest relationship, but you seem happy." And we are.)

In rug hooking news, my cutter is still not back from being fixed. I know it is fixed, because I talked to the man who fixed it. And I have to say, all the way up here I was like a dog with its head hanging out the car window because I was so excited thinking about how my cutter was going to be waiting on the doorstep when we arrived. In fact, I mentioned it so much that my husband finally turned the radio up a little too loud so he wouldn't have to listen to it anymore. Sigh.............

This is not to mean that I do not have things to do. I'm not sure I mentioned this is the last five minutes, but my son is getting married in September and I am making a signature quilt for them. So one project is to cut out 75-100 hearts that people at the reception can write their prayers, thoughts and good wishes for the happy couple. I will then take the hearts and applique them to a quilt. So I have that. But, of course, while I was at the quilt store today picking out fabric for the hearts, I happened to see this fabric

Is this not the cutest fabric ever??? And I have to tell you, I do love me some cute. So I bought enough to make a bag for when I go back to work. Because having a bag this cute could possible make me feel just a teeny bit better about leaving the lake.
