Thought I'd try a post ...

 Hello?  I don't know if anyone remembers me as it's been so long since I posted. Thought I'd do a little post to try and get back into the way of blogging again.

Most recently we had a wonderful vacation in the USA and traveled from Chicago east to Maryland.  It was a great trip.

We enjoyed the views of Lake Michigan from the Hancock Observatory and then had to stop by Cloud Gate or the giant shiny jelly bean - it's really cool!

 We stayed for a couple of nights on an Amish farm in Lancaster County amidst gorgeous farmland - here are the kids experiencing the life of Amish children - they loved it.

One of the highlights of the trip for me was having the privilege of meeting up with a very special blogging friend, Heather, of The Country Schoolmarm blog. It was too short a visit but one I will treasure. She touched my heart with such precious gifts and the sign 'Kindred Spirits' is so right!  Thank you so much dear friend!

 I have been relaxing with the children so I haven't done much crafting lately - just finished putting together another Americana stitchery kit that I got last year! Needed a frame for it and had to go back to the Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin, Ohio this year!

That's it for now, but maybe I'll post again soon and share some more of my visit and finds along the way!

Hope you'll stop by then too!

Best wishes
