Wonderful Weekend

I enjoyed a gorgeous fall weekend at a cottage in Northern Ontario with a group of friends from work. We have worked together for 5 years so we know each other well and can really let our hair down and relax. They helped me conquer my fear of boating and now look at me sitting at the front of the boat and not freaking out...smiling even!
We did a lot of talking...and I mean A LOT!
And we played some games, ate truck loads of chocolate, and had a wee drink or two. It was similar to a quilting retreat, only without any quilting!
Of course I took along some hand stitching to do while all the chatting was going on.  I made quite a bit of progress on block #7 of my "Journey of a Quilter" project. You can see my other blocks here.  I'm almost ready to start piecing block #8!

Nice to enjoy the last few good weekends of fall before the real weather starts.
