Yesterday was a very hot and humid day, and lucky for me , I spent the day with 2 quilting friends at a cottage on the Pokemouche River, NB. As you can see in the picture, it is beautiful there-- a real paradise.
The first thing we did was to drink our tea and coffee on the dock before retreating to the deck for some relaxed stitching. The river was so calm and warm that I did a 20 minute swim fro a bit of morning exercise as a bit of (I hoped) blood sugar control.
We ate lunch outside accompanied by the sounds of a quick thunder storm and a deluge of rain. Of course there was lots of chat; one friend commented that "we had solved all the world's problems." After that we moved inside for some more stitching and a movie while we ate supper. We had one more session on the dock before heading home. It was a perfect day!
Here are the 2 little pieces that I put the finishing touches on. The seahorse is 4 by 6 and the seashell is about 11 !/2 by 13 !/2 inches.
