No better place to spend a heat wave than on Lake Chautauqua! My annual "cousin's week" at the lake- when all my sisters and their families spend the week at my parent's lake. We missed a few this year- new jobs and life stuff kept a few loved ones at home. They were truly missed, but I feel blessed to have spent the week with my family.
I'm feeling rested, a little sun burned, and a few pounds heavier from Dad's famous "Chautauqua Shore Breezes" (a perfect blend of rum, pineapple and cranberry!). My fingers are sore from working late at night- stitching leather and wire wrapping. Tomorrow I'll unpack and perhaps share a few images of new work. It's coming along!!
