July and August in Keweenaw

We are back home after a wonderful four-week visit to Mohawk. We were able to visit with many old friends at my husband’s class reunion. We also enjoyed having our children and their spouses join us for a week.

I was also pleased to do two classes at the Copper Country Artist Association Gallery in Calumet. We met for three hours on two Tuesdays.  The staff at the gallery were welcoming. It was a pleasure to hold classes there. And I love sharing punch needle.

Donna, Stephanie, Mary and Debra joined the class. Stephanie (our little over-achiever) finished her project and by the time we met for our second class she had drawn her own design on a new project and almost completed that.  She did an unbelievable job on the lettering. I think by next summer she will be teaching me!

As I sit here feeling the heat and humidity it is hard to think that fall is so close. But a trip to a local store yesterday shows that to be true. Pumpkins and Halloween candy and orange and gold everywhere… I’m still waiting for our neighbors’ tomatoes to turn red.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to Yoopertrails. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Glad you had a great time and made it safely home. Sounds like your class went well. Stephanie must be artistic. Her design looks very detailed. So what are you punching now? 🙂 Lori

    1. Hi Lori. It was a long trip home as we did it in one day instead of two. I’m working on some animal pictures. I finished a horse, which is about ready to be framed and I’m about half finished with a giraffe. I’ll post pictures as soon as they are ready.

    1. Thanks Judy. It was so nice to be all together continuing our tradition. The sunset was clouded over, but that is all right. The hot dogs, marshmallows and the roasted potatoes were spot on.
