2014 Resort Season Ends!

      Where does the time go?  It seems like we were just rushing around getting the resort ready to open...and now we are rushing around getting the water turned off, lines blown out and everything closed up for the winter!
The pool cover is on for the winter...
New picnic tables are folded up and stored...
The last loads of cabin bedding are washed and bagged...
Whatever did I do before we had golf carts to haul all this to cabins?
We watched the stocking of walleyes in the lake this month...500# of walleyes, sizes ranging from 9 to a pound to 50 to a pound!  An exciting addition to the lake every other year!
My Blackduck quilting group came out in October and sewed for 4 days in cabin #12...
Jackie and her block of the month quilt...nearly finished!
Val & Bev with Val's block of the month quilt...ready for borders!
Jillian posing with the pumpkin bags we filled for the fall!
My recently finished retreat quilt, ready to be quilted!
Fall wall hanging, quilted and ready for binding...sewn many years ago!

Flannel quilt needs binding, but we got cold and had to use it!

Table runner kit from years ago...finally quilted and ready to bind...

Nativity wall hanging for church...needs binding!

Stained glass wall hanging to bind for church!
You can see I have plenty of sewing to keep me busy for awhile...and lots of new projects to begin this winter!  I won't lack for sewing ideas when the snow flies!

We also continue to watch the construction progress...every photo seems to make the house look bigger than the last photo!  What are we thinking?  I guess some big families will have plenty of room to spread out next summer...and we'll have room for our growing family whenever we retire!
And this just might be a sewing loft...some day!

 Shingling has started...that should be finished this week!  The doors will be put in should arrive this week and finish up the closing in of everything for the winter work!  Yes, it's big!

I also want to share a photo I took a year ago...a beautiful sunset...something I didn't notice until I saw the photo later was the reflection the sun had shown on the lake...the first photo is the photo I took...
And below is the photo shown upside down...a sign?  Perhaps...
Beauty, for sure!

So now we settle in for the end of the season...wait for the snow to fall...and make our list for the 2015 resort season...we already have lots of fun ideas to make your vacation the best ever!
