There is a very cool old Inn, just about 45 minutes from our house, which has a you-set-your-pins bowling alley in it. It is also a hotel which was visited by the likes of Mary Pickford, Charles Lindbergh, and Ronald Coleman, once upon a time (you can see their signatures in the old register even). We'd been meaning to go bowling there for the past year but only finally made it on Friday evening. I think we'll be back again soon! More photos here.

A trip to visit Elliott the Ram, his son William, and
His new lambs (again.)
A trip to an abandonned cement factory and water fall in High Falls.
Cookies baked to take to a BBQ at my cousin's house in New Jersey.
And violets were foraged. More on that to come!

Trip Around the World Doll Quilt. Continuing my efforts to amass a collection like this one.
Flower Seeds pillow. I just love this fabric and how it matches the curtains in my craft room so it had to be a pillow. And, as an added bonus, this wool on the back is one that I love and have had for years and years (since my gung-ho rug hooking days in about 2004) but have never found a use for. Now I've used a bit of it at least!
