Quilt With Us

Hi, all!


My Minnesota vacation was Wonderful!  Now I am looking for lakeshore property so I can spend part of my year there, each year!  I managed to be there in between two hot muggy spells - the weather was just about perfect!   And I was able to spend time with old friends - two of whom I had not seen for over 20 years - so that was also fun.  One artist friend taught me how to throw pots on a pottery wheel (I bought a wheel and kiln a year ago but have not tried them yet), so that was fun.   My brother is a chef and food writer, and used to own a restaurant on a MN lake, so staying with him and my niece was Wonderful!  Yum!  


I managed to find and spend my money at two great quilt shops - one in Mpls, and one in Wahkon - so that was fun!  The outhouse at my brother's (he also has indoor plumbing) was equipped with electricity, so that was fun, also, and an upgrade from the outhouses I remember from my childhood!   After I got back to CA, I visited my daughter and accidentally left my camera there, so I cannot post any pics until I get it back.  


All in all, I had a great trip - and I am seriously looking for lake property there!  I have always felt torn between wanting to be back home in MN, where I grew  up, and wanting to be in CA, where I have lived for 35 years - I'm thinking that splitting the time may be the best of both worlds!

How fun that would be. Hope you find just the right place.

I wouldn't trade our lake cottage for anything...it's only twenty minutes from our house. This was the first week we've been home since June! You'll never regret the decision!

That is a great price!  Wow!  I don't think the ones in MN go for that - but how nice that will be for them!

Karen, that sounds like the perfect solution.  My niece & her dh just bought a little lakeside cottage in Central Michigan for just a little over $20,000.00.  She said it is tiny, but perfect for those weekend getaways as it is only about an hr's drive north of where they live.
