Retreat at the beach

I'm as lazy as all get out this morning! Have you ever heard that expression? My grandmother used to say it and it just came to me.
Gord and I got our flu shots last night. He had no side effects but by bed time I couldn't move my arm. I slept restlessly and kept having a repeating nightmare after about 3am.
Anyway, it's an at home day today, and I'm doing wash and getting packed for our Thanksgiving trip to PEI tomorrow.
In the next week, my goals are to first cut up fabric in preparation for the guild retreat next weekend, and only after that will I do any work on my art quilts.
Yesterday, when I went down to the cottage for lunch after my swim, I took a couple of photos. Here are some of the ladies at work. It gives you a bit of an idea of just how we can take over a space; it was a-buzz like a busy little bee hive.

Unseen around the corner, one lady was sitting at a floor hoop doing some hand quilting.
The space is all windows and what a view!

I didn't take photos of all the projects but I took this one of the very pink eye spy quilt being made for a lucky grand daughter.

And I couldn't resist this shot of my friend putting the final borders on her repro granny square quilt.

We're having another beautiful fall day, so I shall need to get out and enjoy some of it. I hope you can too!
