Going out on top, 2-29-24

Here’s my latest finish – a red, white and blue version of Beautifully Done by Anna Fournelle – I believe it was a free pattern online.

By now we’ve all heard that Caitlin is going pro! And why not? There are no more records for her to break and even though it’s been so much fun for all of us, she needs to move on with her life. Depending on who drafts her, I’ll now become a WNBA fan. Who’s with me?

The USA backing fabric was a gift from Rose and the dog sashing fabric was a gift from Cyndy.

The red floral was one of those fabrics that I loved too much to use – ugh. I’m not going to be that kind of quilter any more.

Binding fabric from 1987!

Has anyone tried to find a built in Featherweight table? This dealer said it’s listed at $1000 on EBay – she has this one she’ll sell for $500.

After seeing this drawer unit on Marketplace for $20 I went to a neighboring town to see it – and bought it – along with several other things including these dogs.

Also this sewing basket stand – needing paint

I’ve got another great house tour for you coming up!

Did anyone see my layout mistake in the red, white and blue quilt? I didn’t see it until I hung it up to take a picture. The dogs who enjoy the couch will never care but good grief. Too late now.

    Love the red, white and blue quilt and no, I don’t see a mistake in the layout. The fabrics are all great. I also just love the dinosaur quilt. So cute!

  2. Shirley Andersen Smith

    Cingratulations to Caitlin all her Iowa fans. She put Iowa on the map. Yes, great, wonderful roll model for young girls. It will be wonderful to follow her.
    I do see mistake now Mary, but only after looking and probably because I made a similar mistake recently. Nothing is perfect.
    An hardly wait to see the next house tour.

    Ps I would like to have a chat with Puxatawney Phil. 😡

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Shirley – oh no! I’m just not up to date on your forecast – how much snow do you have on the ground? Is more in your forecast? We have none – spring is right around the corner but we had one really cold morning yesterday with wind chills at 14 below. Now the wind is very strong out of the south bringing us warm air

    I never look for mistakes. The maker knows they are there and no need for anyone to point them out!
    I hope Caitlin makes a bundle in her pro career. She has worked so hard and deserves every penny.
    I have a cousin in Texas, close to Wichita Falls, boy I hope the fires are not around them. I do pray for all who are in their paths. It’s like listening to the fire reports in Hawaii and Canada. Just awful.

    I don’t see the mistake in your quilt. That’s probably good. Ha! Love your finds! The picture with the dog licking the dishes reminds me of a story my mother told. My grandmother had a relative who always came to visit once a week at dinnertime. So, one night after a visit over a delicious meal, Grandmother set the dirty plates on the floor and let the dog lick them off. When they were clean, she nonchalantly picked them up and put them back into the cupboard. A funny thing happened. The relative never visited at mealtime again!

    1. Diane, Squeak, & Buddy in Central Ohio

      Martha, I remember that story, but I read it in Dear Abby years ago. It still makes me laugh! I thought if it, too, when I saw that picture. Too funny!
      Mary, think I saw the mistake, but I love the quilt and most people would never see it. Lots of great finds and beautiful quilts today.
      We have daffodils up and some people have blooming ones. But, March can get wild so the flannel sheets stay on.😹😹

    2. Mary Etherington Post author

      Martha – oh, what a great story about the dishes! Love it!

  5. Becki

    Hi Mary. I look forward to your blog posts. I was very fortunate to get my grandmas featherweight machine. It was in very good condition. I also got the table made for a featherweight. The machine sets down I the table. Something like this is hard to find. Thank you grandma 👵

  6. Marsha from Kansas

    I never would have noticed a thing wrong with your quilt and think it’s beautiful. I’m trying to use and enjoy fabric I have thought too pretty to use. I’ll enjoy it so much more in a finished quilt than in a tub or drawer. That’s the perfect pattern for your cherished fabric as the pieces are large enough to show off the design.

  7. Lollie

    That’s a Featherweight cabinet. My friend got hers for $5 at auction in central Iowa – perfect condition. I own two tables, each purchased over time from the same auctioneer. One of the tables comes with an extension to clip on the table to double it’s length. I love it.

  8. Cindy K

    Nice quilt-and no, I don’t notice a mistake. I’m in the same boat as you-very hard to cut fabric up that I really like. I have never seen an oval featherweight table-going to have to pay more attention when I’m out thrifting.

  9. Judy A

    Layout mistake? Always interesting when someone points out a mistake but doesn’t say what it is. Are there supposed to be red pinwheels and blue pinwheels? If yes, then I guess it could be quite screwed up. I thought it looked like a very cool red brick wall with LOTS of window.

  10. DebMac

    I don’t see the mistake in the quilt other than the designer laying hers out differently. The pattern is no longer free but can be found on Etsy. Love it in the red and blue. Giving me ideas for some toile I love but never been able to use….. Aunt Bea would be so happy you’re using the good stuff.
    Happy/sad about Caitlin going pro. Would be nice to see another outstanding college season but understand the reasons why she would go pro now.
    Cute, cute dinosaur quilt!

  11. Tina W in Oregon

    Don’t know that I’ve seen an oval featherweight table. I have one that looks like a card table that I purchased for $50 a LONG time ago. Have used it quite a bit but not lately. Love all the dog pictures and statues. Do you have a wall of just dog pictures that you’ll add to? I finally saw the turned block but it took a lot of looking. It’s not very noticeable.

      1. Jan Hebert

        I think we would ALL love to see your collection of dog pictures, Mary! I’ve got to get out more – I started a collection of scotty dog planters, mine are brown scotty dogs. So cute but I’ve only got two! I have lots of roosters but not many dogs…sigh. Jan in MA

        1. Shirley Andersen Smith

          Yes, lets see the doggie pics.

          Jan – do you collect Scottie things or just planters?

  12. Ginger S

    Love your latest quilt. I think I see your mistake as i was trying to figure out the layout. I think it seems like it would be very confusing and easy to make a mistake. It isn’t that obvious really. I made Bonnie Hunter’s Pumpkin Patch and as i was putting the finished quilt on the back of the sofa, I noticed that one of the pumpkins (luckily in the bottom row) was upside down. Made me smile. In my younger years I would have probably had a little melt down. over it. I’ve mellowed. I guess. Love all of your latest purchases. Looking forward to the house tour.

  13. patti

    first, i love all the pictures you picked up and the drawer unit. no, i don’t see your mistake in the red/white/blue quilt. i’m glad you gave us the name of it though. i’ll have to look into it as it looks like something that will make good use of a larger print fabric. really like the reader quilts also, especially the dinosaurs – so bright and cheerful and perfect for a child. that featherweight cabinet looks interesting. i bought a table for mine, the machine sets down in the table for a flat surface. my table resembles a high-end card table with a wooden top and carriage underneath to hold the machine and folds flat just like one. i picked mine up for $100. currently dh is using it a an extension table next to his computer desk. it holds a printer. i think that dealer wants an awfully lot for that cabinet but then i’m finding out that i’ve been protected from prices for the past 10-15 years of being homebound. after doctor today we stopped at red lobster. omg!!! i almost walked out. the first menu item i saw was $50. egads. dh said get what you want we’ve been eating sandwiches and cereal for over a week due to being scammed and having our finances wiped out. situation has been fixed but it’s been a stressful 10 days and i’ve had to use most of my inheritance to fix it. but we will be okay. come to find out the scammer was spoofing USAA fraud dept (i’ve been a member for 47 years) and i believed them, phone numbers were identical. not something i’d wish on anyone. if anyone calls saying they are from your bank (or credit card) fraud dept., hang up and call them yourself which is what i should have done. would not have mentioned but i’m finding out this is becoming very wide spread. just be careful. yes, i’m happy for caitlin. also happy my orlando magic won tonight. now i’ll return you to your regularly scheduled quilting time. patti in florida

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Patti – I am so sorry. Are you sure you’ll be ok? Is there anything I can do to help alleviate your situation? Could I send you a small check to help? It’s so hard to think there are such rotten evil people in our world. Please let me know because I’d be happy to help.

      1. patti

        thanks for the offer, mary. not necessary. the bank has finally refunded the wired money and hopefully that is the end of that. not liable for any of the credit card fraud thankfully. cards are slowly trickling in and i’m going through the paces of changing numbers at places i donate to and/or places with automatic payments, etc. just alot of stress. it will be over soon. was more concerned with getting the info out since this scam has become so widespread. but thanks, again. patti in florida who will be fine.

        1. Mary Etherington Post author

          Patti – I remember several years ago getting a similar phone call and it didn’t make sense to me so I asked a lot of questions – they finally left me alone. But I was scammed out of almost $2000 online when I was trying to publish Oh, Susannah! What an expensive lesson! It made me sick.

          1. patti

            oh my, i’ so sorry this happened to you. i can’t believe the audacity of these people. i am still getting calls from these same people. it’s amazing. no, i am not talking to them. i wish these people would get a life. patti in florida

    2. Connie

      Patti, So sorry about your problems with scammers. I’ve known some very smart people who were fooled and taken in by scams. Just shows that anyone can be a victim. Hope everything is cleared up soon. I always say that if scammers would put as much time, brain power and effort into good, we may have a cure for cancer by now.

      1. patti

        thanks, connie. i have truly felt like an idiot over this. never thought it would happen to me. guess it can happen to anyone. i agree about the effort being used for good instead of scamming. thanks, patti in florida

  14. Dee from Shell Rock

    I love your treasures, my friend and I hit the thrift shop today. Our friend needed some moral support, we all went to lunch with her before her appointment. I personally have a soft spot for the wooden workbaskets, with the two doors on the top. I have one that I acquired that has a tabletop above the storage, and I use it for an endtable with my stitching on it. And then I realized a while back that I had a bunch of spoons that were family 1 and 2’s, found a spoon rack at the store today. And 3 Country Threads patterns, Adopt, don’t shop, Bone Appetit and It’s a Dog’s Life.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      See – I have a couple unique old sewing baskets but don’t use them – I’m using the tall wicker sewing stand as a night table by my tall bed.

  15. Sandy

    Hi Mary, an old aunt (on my husband’s side) had a sewing basket like that, her little Mexican dog slept in it at night, during the day he was tied to the front porch with some quarters inch elastic to stop him going for all the big dogs walking past!The malamutes next door are doing a bit of howling , they do it when the dad goes out,very attached to him.sorry about the scam , it seems very common now. Take care everyone, best wishes from Sandy

  16. Joy in PA

    Oh Mary, love love love your red, white & blue quilt!! Looked but cannot find a mistake. It is unique! Thanks for the pattern name & designer. Interesting thrifty finds. Have never seen an oval sewing table – very cute. I have a card table that holds the featherweight.

  17. Marsha

    No, I didn’t see the mistake. But it is a beautiful quilt. I love red, white and blue quilts, and your red floral fabric shows up nicely in it.

  18. Connie R. in Wis.

    Congratulations to Caitlin as she takes the next step in her career. The WNBA is going to appreciate the boost they get in viewers when she joins.
    Great thrift finds! All the pictures have that look of loved antiques. Yes, would love to see your dog pictures collection. Your new quilt is beautiful with all those saved fabrics. I like the previous comment about enjoying those special fabrics more in a quilt than in a plastic bin. I’m going to remember that when I plan my next quilt.
    I love the picture of Keeper on your new quilt. Do you have a certain order as to who gets to lay on the new quilt first?😂😂😂 I see Keeper had seniority this time! Thanks for all the wonderful pictures.

  19. RuthW in MD

    Oh!! That dinosaur quilt is absolutely adorable!! Any child would love that quilt. I sort of see the mistake in your quilt, but it looks so nice anyway! I remember you showing all your doggie pictures some years back. And here you are adding to them – such a great collection!

  20. Donna Jo

    What a great featherweight table; never seen anything like it. Love your quilt and I couldn’t find the mistake. I will definitely keep following Caitlin but I can’t tell you how many WNBA teams there are or in what cities!🤣 This is all new to me thanks to you.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Donna Jo – I have never paid much attention to the WNBA because they play in the summer but that’s going to change. I hope her new team is grateful for the buzz she’ll bring to the team and not jealous of her fame. We loved our supper last night – the beans, too, were delicious!

  21. Jane

    Love your quilt and I also have some fabrics that I love and haven’t found the perfect place for them. I’m trying to just use them. It took me a minute, but I did find the misplaced ladder piece. Fortunately it does not jump out. Also love the colors in your quilt. Looks like colors I would choose. Have a great weekend

  22. Linda in MI

    Your quilts are fabulous and I bet there’s not a soul that looks at it that will see a mistake – our how you made it yours! It’s beautiful as it is, I had to study it for a while but who cares? Keeper thinks it is perfect and that’s all that matters.

    The featherweight table is great, that would be a treasure for anyone. I hope she finds someone to put out big bucks for hers. It’s hard looking at the inflated prices online and pricing something. The antique market here is really reasonable compared to markets like where my son lives in North Carolina.

    Good for Caitlin. Now if only the women basketball players made equal to what they pay the men. She should take advantage of earning good pay while she can, athletes never know when an injury can end their career. I bet she will do really well with advertising, it’s wonderful to have someone for young girls to look up to.

  23. Carmen M.

    I didn’t see the mistake in your beautiful quilt either, love the colors! You scored with all the cute dog and baby pics! Love the sewing basket! I just recently bought a featherweight on an online auction, did good, but the oval table although beautiful, is still too pricey for me!

  24. Mary

    I had 2 of those Featherweight tables, my husband built 4 of them, 1 for me and 4 for friends. I bought another “original “ at a garage sale, hubby had to redo it, new veneer on top and stripped paint off the rest it it and refinish it. We did sell it for $1,000.00. The lady drove from Illinois to northwest Missouri to buy it. I tried sewing on it with my FW and I found it too awkward and the area seemed too small. So I sold it too and he made over an old treadle machine to hold my FW, I sew on it and enjoy it, much more room. Plus it’s a “coffin” top which I can cover and protect my FW. I love the quilt, I did find the mistake but did have to go row by row. You did good on your shopping trip!

  25. Becky

    I bought a reproduction featherweight table years ago so someone may still make those. The only thing I don’t like about it is I believe the top is pine which is a soft wood and marks easily.

  26. Diana in Des Moines

    Good grief, girl! you have been busy! I love the quilt, and may add that to my list of must haves. I’ve got several pieces of fabric that I have “saved” for too long – need to use them.
    Adore the drawer unit! I can see spools of thread being stored in it.
    The eye is good today – no pain and everything looks like a fluorescent light is on it! I am okay with not sewing for awhile. Lots of scraps to sort, cut up and dispose of some. We have a young lady join our sewing circle at church. She is a newbie, so I am pulling some fat quarters, and quilting tools/supplies for her. She didn’t even have scissors last time we sewed, so some of my extras will go to her.
    Nice sunny morning! Welcome March!

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Diana – it’s nice to hear someone young wants to learn to sew/quilt! Thanks for helping her.

  27. Sheryl Harrison

    I love the Beautifully Done quilt! What a wonderful pattern choice with the large block to use your favorite fabric.

    I follow “I Grew Up In Iowa” on Facebook and there was a discussion about Caitlin. Does anyone know what it means when people commented “Her records would always have an asterisk if she stayed another season.”

    1. Michele

      I am guessing that the asterisk would be because she can have an extra year of eligibility due to the covid allowance. As compared to any player who didn’t get an extra year.

    2. Mary Etherington Post author

      Sheryl – if she stayed for that 5th year and added to her total points, the asterisk would indicate she had more time than other players to achieve such lofty totals.

  28. Kathy in western NY

    The featherweight tables my friends own are wooden square or rectangular but never have seen this oval one.
    Best of luck to Caitlin in her WNBA career as she deserves to succeed even further. I do believe with her poise and beauty inside and out she will be seen in commercials or advertising too. Who wouldn’t want her wholesome attitude to grace their product.
    Nice thrift store finds! Jumping into March and making a corned beef dinner for tonight in the crock pot. We have an Irish pub in our village that begins serving all kinds of Irish foods now every day till the 17th. I like learning of different cultures and their foods which can be different than what I ate growing up.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Kathy – the square featherweight tables are easily located and are within price range. This vintage oval table is rare. Thus the high price. I have no use for it since I don’t use my Featherweights

  29. Kim from Wi

    The finished quilt is lovely and I’m not going to look for the issue, life is short. I love the featherweight table that you found; I’ve never seen one like it before. Lucky you! We are headed north and should be home tonight, ready to unpack and sleep in our own bed. I love all those quirky roadside attractions that Charles Kuralt would share with us and this time we found 2 more. Kadie the cow in Columbus, Georgia and the tallest Mans shirt in Troy, Alabama. Hope the weather holds. P.S. please share all your dog pictures with us, I would enjoy seeing them.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Kim from Wi – I didn’t make myself very clear – she was just showing me the rare Featherweight table. I didn’t buy it nor would I consider it – I don’t even use my featherweights. But it was fun to see – when she knew I was a quilter, she immediately thought I might be interested in it.

  30. Jeanine from SE Iowa

    I love your quilt and I do not see any mistake. I cannot figure out the pattern. Most people would not see it. It looks like a fun one to make.

    We are also happy for Caitlin and wish her the best in the WNBA. She has had so much attention, I hope the team that gets her accept her with open arms, and not jealous of all she has accomplished. The Iowa girls have all been so supportive of her. She will definitely be missed.

    Not much wind today, but it is suppose to pick up and be even more windy tomorrow, but for now March is coming in like a lamb.

  31. Susan in AL

    What great treasures you found! I love all of the quilt pictures, because they motivate me to make the most of the time that I have to sew; but, today, the dogs are especially fabulous. Your black Scottie collection is so charming!

    I went to an estate sale recently, and as one does here, was chatting with the people waiting outside for the opening. There is always someone who knows who used to live there, and where their Mama lived, and so on. One gentleman was so excited, because he knew that one of the former residents collected small china dogs and he wanted the collection. It was so unexpected to see a man wanting small collectibles, but you meet the most unusual people here!

    I would love to see your dog picture collection!

  32. Fran

    Love this post. Everything about it.

    I am to get my new hearing aids today so life especially socially, will be more pleasant. On top of that, I got word that another Great grandbaby is on its way. I am just finishing up the quilts and receiving blankies for the one coming before in about a month. So onto more baby quilts it is!

    Life is good and I love starting my day with this blog!

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Fran – I, too, look forward to my morning coffee and this chat.

  33. Linda

    Patti the same scam happened to us.last year Lost thousands of dollars. It all seemed so legitimate. Went to the police and the bank and they said it happens all the time.

    1. patti

      oh no, linda. then you know exactly how i felt. horrible horrible experience. glad you survived also. patti in florida

  34. Sunflower 🌻 from Michigan

    Happy March!! 🍀 🍀
    I could not find the mistake in your beautiful quilt. What a beauty and the pets love it!

    I love the drawer unit and the dogs. Pictures are so nice, too. I think that’s a high price for the sewing cabinet but hope the lady gets it.
    Beautiful finishes by the readers today. Bet that dinosaur quilt was fun to make!

    Years ago, I had a piece of very colorful fabric I loved and kept out on my sewing table for a long time just to look at everyday. And I had a pack of 10 inch squares my son bought me. So one day I decided to sew the squares together and used the colorful fabric for the back. I put in into my quilt rotation for the back of my sofa and I love it everytime I see it. I have a funny story about those quilt squares. My son was in Hawaii working for a year. For Christmas, he went into a quilt shop there and asked the lady to recommend fabric for me as a gift. He said he felt like a fish out of water in that quilt shop! The lady had him buy me a set of 10 inch squares and several 5 inch square bundles. I made the small ones into a reversible table runner. Many times my son has asked if he can have that runner but so far I’ve resisted as I love it myself!!
    Have a great day everyone!

  35. Jan Hebert

    Love your thrift haul! I wonder how many people realize that that isn’t a mom washing dishes but a really sad hockey player longing to be outside with his friends? Cute cute picture! And the featherweight sewing cabinet is really nice. I saw one at the woman’s house where I bought my featherweight. Hers was in pristine condition as were the featherweights she sells! If anyone is interested, you can actually buy plans to make your own cabinet (you can buy a kit with different wood choices but they’re pretty pricey). Here is the link: https://www.bnddesign.net/cabinet-plans-kits/cabinet-plans/ or your could just go to bnddesign.net, I think the plans are $35. And now for my rant…why isn’t anyone talking about the fact that boys (young men) are being allowed to play in girls (women’s) sports??? Did you see the game recently where three female basketball players were injured by a transgender player? The injured team forfeited the game and now are banned to play again this season??? It’s unbelievable! We have got to stand up to this as a country. Just my thoughts but I am surprised it’s not being discussed. Jan in MA

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Jan – I follow sports pretty closely but I don’t know about this incident – where did it happen? Which just proves your point – why isn’t it being covered. And why was the injured team banned and not the attacking team? Or did I misunderstand?

      1. Jan Hebert

        Hi Mary, it was a game in MA between a Lowell and Lynn high school. I was wrong about the team not being able to play again this season, I’m sorry for the mistake. It was a Vermont Christian school basketball team that has been banned from state athletics because they forfeited a game against a team with a transgender player. The coach has daughters and just felt it would be asking for injury to let his team play against a transgender player. They are bigger, stronger, and just play differently from women. I feel bad but I agree – maybe there should be teams made up of just transgender people. Not sure what the solution is but I’m glad my kids are grown up! Jan in MA

        1. Mary Etherington Post author

          You don’t need to feel bad – I agree but then I’m old, from the Midwest, raised conservatively in a Christian home – what do I know?

  36. Diane in Maryland

    I don’t see any mistake in your quilt. It looks great to me! Someone told me that Amish quilt makers always make a deliberate error in each quilt because it shows that we are not perfect. Fortunately I do not have to do that as mistakes just come natural to me! 😁

  37. Polly Perkins

    My friend’s husband built her a Featherweight table. It is gorgeous.

  38. Charlotte in No. California

    Your red, white and blue quilt is beautiful. I had to go back after you mentioned the layout boo boo. I did find it but it’s not a big deal….it’s still beautiful. I’m going to add that one to “my want to make quilts list”. I love all the quilts…especially the dinosaur quilt.

  39. Betty Klosterman

    As for a mistake in your quilt: I looked at every row, and not knowing the pattern it was difficult to know which was right. It is a pattern that wouldn’t have an obvious error showing. And who cares? And if somebody was looking at it closely 10 years from now and they discovered an error. Well good for them! It is beautiful, finished and will keep them warm, no matter what!! I know it is rather irritating, but not the worst problem in this world. And just how do they think we come up with a new layout??? A seasoned quilter will just smile and be happy it isn’t hers!

    And back to what I was told many years ago: The only people who don’t make mistakes are dead or not doing anything!!!!! Never made me feel better, but it is right.

    Take care. Betty in Rapid City

  40. Pamela Dempsey in Northeast Texas 😻

    I didn’t see a mistake, I just thought it was pretty. I was able to get a featherweight table off eBay a few years ago and was so excited it didn’t have much damage, they even recoated it. I have a 1961 tan featherweight and a 1939 beauty. I love sewing on them better than my Janome. One year ago today I had to put Emily 🐈‍⬛ to forever sleep. I still miss her so. Thank you Lord we have been blessed with Penny and Lucy😻. Our Texas shop hop has started and am going tomorrow hopping for the day. Then Wednesday through Friday, hoping to get 2 sections completed. We have 105 shops total and am not going to get everywhere, Texas is big! 🥰

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Pamela – I know Emily is relieved that you have Penny and Emily to ease the pain off her passing. I can’t believe it’s been a year!

      1. Kris in WI

        Pamela, I love the pictures of Penny and Lucy that you share. Sometimes it is hard to see where one leaves off and the other begins when they are curled up together. So sweet to have their company, I’m sure.
        Mary, I think I recognize a Scottie bookend in the picture of your thrift shop treasures. We have a pair, though one has a broken ear (guilty, but I was a kid!). Haven’t found your layout error and don’t intend to look any further. I like it just the way it is and so does Keeper!
        Such good advice to use the “good stuff!” I have five or six pieces of Australian fabrics with Aboriginal designs I’d like to use; left over from a travel-themed Summer Library Program “back in the day.” They have beautiful colors and intricate dotted patterns. I really do need to get them out of the bin and take a good look at them again.
        Back to the laundry! Kris

        1. Mary Etherington Post author

          Kris – there was a single brown Scottie and a pair of black ones – both had a broken ear – ha!

  41. Janice

    Mary, I just love your red, white and blue quilt. I also love the backing fabric. I looked at the quilt pattern and then back at your finished quilt on the fence. Wow, your vision makes it look like a completely different quilt design. Great job. The pets seem to enjoy the quilt. Janice, Traverse City area
