Yesterday, I visited a friend at her summer place an hours drive from here. They like to refer to it as paradise and it's not hard to see why. Situated at the mouth of a river, the view is spectacular and the breezes refreshing. Their little place is cozy and private. Surrounded by trees, especially the poplars, we could hear the rustling from the room with a view where we sewed. That is a wooden heron by the way, but you can often spy the live ones along the shore.
Quilting Gallery. Voting starts Friday morning and runs until Monday, so if you have the time I'd love it if you'd go vote.
