Patriotic Finish & Zip Line
Finished this little quilt yesterday in time for the holiday week-end. This was a little kit given out during the Shop Hop by The Ice House Quilt Shop. Kathy from Canada showed hers here.
A couple of week-ends ago, I attended the May quilting retreat in Gladwin. In addition to working at the sewing machine, several quilters (including me) did the zip line! It is the longest line over water in Michigan, measuring about 1100 feet. We had to climb a platform that was forty some feet high. I loved the experience! If you click on the photos, you can see the platform that I jumped from in the first photo. (look in the center at the top) The zip line is over the Brown Sugar River in Gladwin. The last picture shows my sister, Connie and friend, Marlene who both jumped ahead of me. Once they went, I couldn't back down, could I? Let me explain the green socks. It was the only pair I had along and I didn't want to risk losing my Crocs in the water.
