Michigan Bloggers and Quilt Shop

Have you seen the button Allie-Oops made? She did a great button for Michigan blogging pride:

I'll add mine as soon as I'm back home on my regular computer. Great job, Allie! You are seriously one talented lady! LOVE that bridge!

So, where I have been? Today I went on a short adventure with my Dad. We drove north to Algonac, MI for a quick trip to beautiful Harsens Island. I really love this area of the Michigan coastline - more residential than touristy. They take pride in their decorated fishing shanties and the great "painted ladies" along the road.
As we were heading north, we stopped in at the River Place Quilt & Sew next to the only other booming business in East China, MI... the Dairy Queen!

If you get a chance, drop in! They were the sweetest ladies selling Moda and Stitch Connection patterns. They didn't even ask why I was walking around with dried mud (like tar) coating one flip-flop and painting my leg up to one knee! (That's a tale for another day!)

Happy Stitching!


  1. I'm glad for the Michigan button and have added it to my blog too!

    Where exactly is East China? I've heard of it, but don't believe I've been there. I'll have to check out the website for that quilt shop as I'm always up for trying something new :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. It was all your fault, sweetie, you came up with the fabulous idea! Thank you! I used to fish near Harsen's Island with my grandfather all the time - he knew THE spot for bass. Glad you had a good time!


I'd love to hear from you!
