I was met at the Lansing airport by Rosemary who helped me grab my luggage and whisked me off to her lovely home on the lake.
This photo was taken off of her back deck as we watched flocks of Canadian geese swim in formation, silently moving through the water.
Temps are in the high 30s, but it felt warmer than that with the last of the afternoon sun shining down.
After pulling the casserole out of the oven, we headed over to Jean's house where a potluck dinner was held including members of the board and others from the capital city quilters guild in Lansing.
Food, fun and a house full of quilters!
And one thing I had to take a photograph of because I think it is so ingenious:
How many of you are avid bag savers like I am?
I admit it! I will wash out Ziploc bags and reuse them and reuse them until their seals give way!
It's the drying part that drives my family nuts. There are baggies to be found on top of bottles, over jars, over faucet handles and anywhere else a drying bag can find a resting place!
I think Jean said it was her son that made this bag drying rack for her, and isn't it a great idea?
Find a piece of wood to use for the base. Drill some holes, and insert dowels – and voilà!
Instant baggie drying rack :-)
I'm all settled into my hotel room for the night. I was planning on doing some sewing tonight, but Both Rosemary and I forgot to bring in Rosemarys featherweight a.k.a. aunt Elsie from the backseat of the car.
After Rosemary left, and I remembered I ran to the front desk to see if they had a phone number for her, and they didn't. Besides – how could I explain that we left aunt Elsie in the backseat of the car?
We will deal with aunt Elsie another time! :-)
Tonight? It's early to bed for me.
