North to Alaska

After a whirlwind weekend and family gathering with laden tables of food and drink, outdoor games of croquet and bean bag toss, and good, supportive  times with friends and family, we headed to the airport and an immediately necessary trip tp Alaska to help family in crisis.

Michele Bilyeu blogs With Heart and Hands as she shares her creative and healing  journey from Alaska to Oregon. Wildcrafting and the textiles arts... sewing, quilting, and creating prayer flags. Join me as I add my healing energies to changing our little project, one gift of sharing from my heart, at a time.


  1. Have a good and safe trip. You live in two absolutely beautiful places.


  2. And, here we go again...Probably better we perpetually go...Helping others, standing up for our beliefs, carrying on, loving and quilting!! Safe travels, my friend.

  3. I all looks and sounds quite beautiful. Enjoy yourself and the beautiful land you are visiting.
