A Lovely Holiday Weekend

It was a wonderful weekend filled with a variety – from gardening to geocaching (see our story here), dining out to delights with wine, and a little quilting in between.
Yesterday afternoon we took some time to go out to a nearby resort town, situated on a lake, featuring hot springs pools.
Many, many others had the same idea – to enjoy the sunshine while it shone:
People exercised themselves, their children and their dogs.  We met Baillie and Roxie, and their owners:
Sailors and boaters and fishermen all took advantage of the weather
and the water:
We wandered the trails, and visited The Source:
037.The Source This is where the sulphur springs originate, and the pumps installed here feed the warm waters to the pools in town and at the hotel.
And of course, a stop for some gelato:

I did mention some quilting got done in between – well right now my design wall looks like a bit of a mish-mash, but eventually this:
57. Design wall
will morph into two more quilts.
Hope you all had as lovely as weekend, and got the chance to enjoy the beautiful weather God sent our way.  Peg

  1. So glad you had a great long weekend. We have one coming up. You had the right idea. I am starting today on a patchwork cushion. Not really enough fabric to make a big quilt, which I am probably not up to, but perfect for the room and for me to get some taste of using these thicker fabrics. As you know some of the damask pieces are usable on either side. Thanks for the idea.
