Busy times.....

here on the Lane!
Stitching, Bridal Showers, Bachelorette Weekends, Birthdays,Punching, Haircuts, Sketching.....
well, you get the idea....and I didn't mention the upcoming Wedding!

My niece Kate is getting married in September....my baby brothers daughter.  Having so much fun with all the events leading up to the wedding.  Yesterday was the shower I hosted for her at a wonderful venue just down the way from here....The Edgar Farm.  An 1800's farmstead that has been converted by the original owners heiress....but really left mostly untouched and only enhanced with some updates to the kitchen and bath.  Beautiful brick home with huge porch....
and an equally lovely interior....
Lots of preparation but so enjoyable!

And then there was the Bachelorette Weekend....three days in Traverse City....with Mom of the Bride Mary, who let's just say is much younger than me....and six ladies ages 22-26.....and me!
Yes, I survived it all.....the bike trolley around the town...the Nauti Cat cruise around the Bay and so much more.  Yup, I guess I've still got it...well maybe not so much but I survived and I had a blast!

My birthday was mixed in there somewhere along the line, and my sweet Stitchers made it a day to remember....

All of this and more in the past couple of weeks!  Some of the "more" is the upcoming opening of 
"The Primitive Willow" here in our little town.  I've been helping shopkeepers Kim and Shane by "mentoring" and pitching in with as much physical labor that this old body allows!  It has been so much fun and exciting as well.  Just a few more weeks and they'll be swinging open the doors for their Grand Opening ~ September 14-17
I will share more info and pics on all of that with you as the day nears...mark the date and plan to stop in and see all the wonderful goods they'll be offering!  You will be delighted!

Several new punch needle and wool appliqué designs are in the works as well and will be unveiled soon with patterns and some finished goods as well.  

That's my newsy update for now....
Take some time to enjoy these dog days of summer....
The wonderful season of Autumn is just around the corner.....
filled with good news and surprises!

Until next time....
From the Lane,
Sharon
