Hello and welcome to Yooper Trails

Well, Ground Hog Day has come and gone and we find ourselves with six more weeks of covid, I mean winter. Back in the day growing up in the far north county of Keweenaw we were always happy that it was only six more weeks of winter. I hope you are all doing well and making it through these times. My husband, a veteran has been vaccinated at the VA hospital. Being in that over-65 category, I’m lucky to have one scheduled for March 5. I’m counting the days like its a vacation coming up. With age comes some perks, I guess. You need to balance all that time you spend looking for your glasses or trying to remember why you just came into the kitchen.

On to happier conversation. I continue to love my punching and have a few things to share with you. It looks pretty white and snowy outside, so I did some flower bowl fillers. They are stuffed with balsam, one of my favorite scents’

These little doorknob hangers and patriotic sheep are on their way to Spring Run Farm in Lowell, Indiana. These are my drawings as well as the bowl fillers above.

I really enjoyed working on The Patriot, a pattern from Colleen King Colaizzi. I learned a new method of finishing and for my first attempt, I think it worked out pretty well. In the background you see Lori RIppey’s horse with jingle bells. Guess you can tell I like horses.

I have another little spring chicken almost completed. I hope to have new pictures in a couple days. Enjoy your week. I’m about to visit the Sunday morning flea market at our local Farmers Market. I hope I find some goodies.
