A Glorious Weekend

For the past ten or so years, my Monday night quilting group, the "Phat Quarters", has rented a cabin for a weekend getaway in spring.  This year, we found a vacation home at Harrison Hot Springs, a lakeside community about an hour away from my home.
I loved this sign which greeted us at the front door.
It was a beautiful house with space to sleep 12 people.  We were 8 this year.
We spent the first minutes exploring all the rooms.
 This is the view from the loft looking down to the living room.
We started Friday evening off with appetizers and wine.
We always eat very well.
Laura made amazing curry chicken wraps for dinner.
 And we enjoyed great conversation around the dinner table.
Saturday breakfast included a wonderful fruit salad,
And Meg's scrumptious french toast casserole with brown sugar sauce.
 Saturday morning was spent stitching.
I worked on a little wool candlemat project.
Here's a preview.  Pattern to come soon!
Then we had to burn off a few calories, so some of us went for a walk.
This stream was right behind the house.
 And the lake was just a few minutes away.
We'll need to come back in summer to enjoy the beach,
but the weather was perfect all weekend.
 Saturday supper, as is our tradition, is take-home pizza. 
Followed by videos in the evening and another wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning.
As always, the time flew by much too quickly but what a glorious weekend it was!
I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.
Thank you all!


  1. What a wonderful place to be, definitely a true retreat.
    I have been making a lot of hexagon pieces and was thinking about trying it with wool too. They are fun to work with.


  2. What a great week-end, I would have liked to attend...
