Although, we didn't stay here.
This sweet little play cabin, which was made by my dad, belongs to Grace and her two cousins. Daily tea parties were enjoyed here.
Part of what I love about going to Wisconsin is that I have access to the Queen of Quilts, who helps me figure out projects like how to make a child's apron, which I will happily show you how to make (tutorial to follow...eventually).
The Queen of Quilts also taught me the basics of crochet and I began a crocheted baby blanket using a tutorial from Modern Grace.
It must have looked like fun because Grace insisted on crocheting her own blanket. Of course, her attention span only allowed her to make a tiny scarf for her Barbie.
And, I was able to visit my embroidered USA quilt, which is next on The Queen of Quilts' long arm, waiting to be quilted.
Some other projects from the weekend included, a simple, no sew(!) kite shaped hair bow holder I had pinned from Ruffles and Stuff over a year ago.
I finished another ABC sampler. Though, to be fair, I only had 7 letters that needed to be completed.
Of course the week was filled with more than just craft projects.
We took daily boat rides, enjoying feeling the wind in our hair...er, I mean ears.
Proud moments were experienced as I happily watched my sweet little girl catching fish (8 in total), with her grandpa, using hot dogs as bait because she didn't want to hurt any worms.
And, I was reminded, that life truly is made of the little moments.
