Then we drove to Grand Rapids and went to the John Ball Zoo. We got caught in a torrential down pour but it didn’t stop up from seeing everything. It is a great zoo in a lovely wooded forest. I loved it!!!

2015-08-25 10.06.55 2015-08-25 11.52.04 I have been back to quilting hook feather. And I worked on my other quilt projects. I did work on my Renfest skirt. It may be salvageable. I am pretty sure that I will be doing tons of quilting and sewing.

2015-08-25 15.41.34 2015-08-25 15.42.00 2015-08-25 15.42.13 I went to the quilt shop to pick up thread. And I had to take pics of the three quilts I did for them over the summer. You can see them on display and the info about the quilt kits are on the signs next to the quilts. I am pretty proud of the work I did on these quilts. The kits are at Delphine’s Quilt shop in Gaylord, Michigan.

Today felt like my fall New Years day. It’s cold , rainy and the leaves are changing …. back to school.
