Cobblers at the Cabin! (long post)

Thank you so much sister Jana! you are the hostess with the mostest!!
Cobbler Joyce and Beth weren't able to come..we sure missed them!
we all had a great productive fun time!! and probably shouldn't eat for a week!
 I have loved this drive in to the cabin ever since i was a little girl.
it changes with every season...
 uncle Doodles/auntie Marys storage area with grandpas sign from a past business.
Marys and Pats cabins are a couple doors down from Janas...
I'm here!!
Jana has the fire all ready and kept it going all weekend..
  a little sewing before the others arrive!

 up in the loft in front of the bedroom..
this was our grandparents rocker and bench,
a perfect place to sit and look out at the lake.

everyone's here and a few gifts for the hostess!

some food....
just part of Saturdays breakfast....

Carol was busy stitchen in the sun!

 auntie Pat was working on a jean quilt!

 love it Auntie!
Carol P was working on pillow cases and a cool quilt!

 Janas neighbor Joette stopped over and was working on these scrubbers for washing dishes
i think she was crocheting them.. she brought wonderful meat/chz/crackers!
Auntie Mary was punchen!
sister Jana was giving Carol a tutorial on putting a zipper in a pouch as Carols working on a new idea for the market this spring!
 this was a purchased pouch (her flower) but she wants to make her own out of wool..
