Off the Grid....

to use a catch phrase....at the Cabin, UP North....two curves past the last power pole....
that means no electric, which means no internet, no television....thinking it's kinda like heaven!!
Truthfully though, we do have a generator so that gives us the power we need for all that we want while there.  I can get a text and send one as well....if the timing is good.  The phone rings but most times can't answer it.  Make a phone call out?  Yes, if the booster is on and you're in just the right spot on the sofa!  Emails and internet....nope.   So of course I think of a million and one things I'd like to pop on here and share with you all, and I have the time.....then I get home and I forget most everything and have no time!  Still so good to be home.....

In my last email I mentioned the notion of a sale here on the Lane, sometime in June is what I shared and asked you to email me if you would like an invite.  Thank you to all who responded, I have added you all to the "invite" list and I will be sending those soon.....just one minor change, I'm thinking the sale will be in July instead of June.  The date will be shared with you on your invite and I will be sure to give you plenty of notice so you can RSVP....I just don't feel I can pull it all together like I want to by mid June and through encouragement of some wise friends will do it in July!  
If you haven't emailed me with an invite request and you'd like to join in the sale, there's still time.
Email me at yellowdoglane@gmail.com with your request and I will add you to the group.  

Lots going on here at the Lane right now and busy times these next few weeks.  
Open Stitch here in the Cellar Studio tomorrow and  Evening Stitchers on Thursday.  New punch needle and wool applique designs, too.  
If you would like more info on Open Stitch and/or our classes here on the Lane, just give a shout.....
we'd love to have you join us.

Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day....
Till next time!

From the Lane,


  1. Always good to hear your thoughts. July seems like a wise choice. Amazing how time passes during these simmer months. Will most likely see you at Pat's sale.

  2. sadly, I think in summer, we are so busy, we don't take the time to be "off the grid". We need the time to sit and watch a camp fire. To sit on the porch with coffee. To watch the flowers grow, and the hummingbirds. And listen to the rooster down the road crow his good mornings, ALL day. Summer does go too fast. We have so much to pack into these few months.
