My dream is coming true. I have always wanted a little cabin in our woods so this year DH is building me one. I am so excited! He has it all framed and he has ordered the pine for the walls and the steel for the roof. There will be a pine floor and a wood stove in it. Our neighbor behind us gave me an old door and windows so they will be installed. He has been working diligently on it and it looks wonderful. I can't wait for it to be finished. Here are a couple of pictures so far.

Last Thursday we had our sewing gathering and dinner at Linda's log house. Linda made us such a delicious dinner. We had home made sweet potato rolls, salad, and a choice of french onion soup or seafood chowder. Seafood chowder was my choice and it was so delicious. I just couldn't stop eating those sweet potato rolls :) For desert there was rice pudding or bread pudding. We enjoyed dinner with a nice glass of wine. I had to leave bright and early the next morning to go to Michigan to judge on Saturday. I stopped in to say hello to Dawn, owner of Holly Hills Primitives on the way. She was busy setting up for an open house with her friend Peggy at Peggy's home in Goodrich Mi. What a wonderful setting for an Open House. So many great primitive things they had for sale. I was lucky to see a preview before they opened. It was great meeting Peggy and her mom and everyone else that was helping, and great to see Dawn again.
