 This is the group that went to Nancy's Palace of the Sun and Moon. Of course, one stop was made at the Country Cone Shop aka Mooneys.
 We made some quilts, and burned them! It was great fun. We used both a woodburner and a heat gun to get delicious results.
Not shown are the wonderful soaps, and sugar scrub we made. And the paraffin dip we did on our hands.
We also made very artsy books, and did creativity exercises.
We watched the sun rise, and the moon rise. And documented it all in more than 400 pictures. We stayed up late, and slept until 8 or 9 or almost 10.
We swam, walked the beach, hunted for Petoskey stones, shopped Richards' Pharmacy, the great all-in-one store for art supplies. Also stopped in at Fabric Fair in Bay City, Bittersweet Quilt Shop in Pinconning, and Hollyhock Quilt Shop in Harrisville.
 One of the many wonderful meals we made, Bruschetta with chopped tomatoes, cilantro, basil, and fresh mozzarella. We also had grilled marinated veggies, and grilled eggplant, followed by fresh cherries.
This is how sad we were to leave at the end of our intensive art camp.

The palace of the sun and moon, sounds like a wonderful, exotic place. I would be sad to leave, too.
