Weekend Quilting Getaway


For several years now, a group of us have rented a cabin on Cultus Lake, about a 30 minute drive from my place, for an annual spring getaway. We bring along whatever project we're working on, videos to watch, wonderful food and wine, and lots to talk about. Last weekend we were blessed with sunshine (always a bonus in BC) and I was reminded that this really is a beautiful part of the world. Here are some pictures.
These women were out on the lake early Saturday morning, one of the Abreast in a Boat dragonboat teams for breast cancer survivors. You can read more about it on these links:

Saturday morning breakfast--crepes with whipped cream and strawberries, fruit, and sausages.

Laura's beautiful quilt top--aren't the colours gorgeous? I wish I knew the name of the pattern designer so I could give her credit.


My dear, good friends.



As always, the weekend passed too quickly and now begins the waiting till next year.
