Late one night I curled up with a copy of Jay Gilbertson’s delightful first book, 'Moon Over Madeline Island'. It was a great read and I laughed all the way through the adventures of Eve and Ruby starting an apron making business on the island. “Crazy idea”, I thought to myself. Makes for a good story but no one would seriously pursue the apron business...would they?
A few days later, I packed up the Mini and headed north to Lake Superior. When I got to Bayfield, the ferry was just boarding for Madeline Island. My internet searches had turned up an inviting motel and an adorable little cottage for sale. I couldn't wait to see it!
The cottage was charming and the island is a great place for inspiration, but Eve and Ruby have a good thing going out there and one apron shop per island is probably enough. So I went home, oiled up my vintage…
