This morning at 9:00 a woman named Katherine came to pick me up for a Girls’ Day Out. Katherine is one of the seasonals here, but she also works in the office. She is a quilter, and when she found out I am too, she offered to take me to a quilt shop I’ve been wanting to see in Sturgeon Bay.
On our way there we stopped in Jacksonport at a farmers market. Here are some pics:
Katherine is the woman in the white top buying vegetables.
I talked with this vendor about the brilliance of the colors in her clothing. She said it’s not tie-dye but ice-dye. You scrunch up whatever you want to dye in a bucket, fill the bucket with ice, and put powdered dye on top of the ice. As the ice melts the color saturates the fabric. It was beautiful!
These were ribbons won by a man who makes pickles and jams.
These are some of the pickles and jams. He said this year he’s going to enter his dandelion jam and lavender jam and one other flower jam in the competition.
I saw this man putting together bouquets and asked him to hold one up. He was happy to do it!
Then Katherine and I went to Sturgeon Bay and went to the quilt shop, a Hallmark shop, and a coffee shop. We had a wonderful time!
We got home at 1:00 and Mark and I spent the rest of the day getting me packed and ready to fly to Washington tomorrow. More on that later. Right now Mark is calling me to bed!
