Been Doing Macrame and Walking at the Beach

Macrame Flat Rose
 If you're interested in macrame, there are a great many excellent instructional videos on YouTube. I made these projects following the directions by Macrame Tita.

Lake Michigan
 Away from the city on a weekday, the shoreline is not crowded and offers tranquil views and cool breezes. 
Fun fact: I've moved several times in my life, yet I've always lived less than 20 miles from the shore of Lake Michigan.
Rawley Point Lighthouse
A vacation outing, even for just a few hours, refreshes one's outlook. We surely all need it!

Tulip Jimmy

 The pink and orange colors of this tulip inspired a new dye batch. Since the name of the tulip cultivar is "Jimmy" I'm calling this batch "Tulip Jimmy". Look for it in my Etsy Shop.
