Breakwater Lighthouse Tote

Ashland, Wisconsin has a lovely little lighthouse out in the Chequamegan Bay Harbor on the breakwater.  It is the signature landmark in the Bay now that the last Ore Dock has, sadly, been taken down.
The Ashland Museum had a stroke of luck a few weeks back when a young man came in looking for work.  Since the museum mostly is staffed by it's dedicated volunteers, all they could offer was the opportunity to volunteer at the museum while he continued his job search. He took them up on the idea.  He only spent a couple of afternoons at the Museum before he was offered a job elsewhere in town, but it turned out he is a talented artist.  He drew a pencil sketch of their lovely little Lighthouse for them to use as a logo for Museum gift shop items.  We had it digitized for my sewing machine and ...
Ta da!  Tote bags for the Museum gift shop.  I'm so excited to be able to embroider not just ANY lighthouse, but THEIR lighthouse!
If you're ever in the area, stop by the Ashland Museum on Main Street.  You could mention that the curator's Mom sent you.  (smile)
