A Special Day

Today I had such a lovely day. The quilting group that I belong to were invited to the home of a quilter...she used to be part of our group but since she lives about 40 minutes from the church where we usually gather, she's been unable to attend this year. Marilyn and her husband have a beautiful home right across the road from the waters of Lake Erie. I sat in her living room just enjoying the view and really didn't want to leave......everybody brought pot luck for our lunch and we had some enjoyable conversation and learned some new quilting techniques. Marilyn also showed us the quilts that she's been working on plus others that she had been working on for the past few years.....just absolutely gorgeous....I could only dream of doing that much quilting in my lifetime!

All too soon, it was time to leave and come back to reality! Maya needed to be picked up from baseball practice, Megan, who had spent the day at Leslie's also had to be retrieved and hubby was teaching this evening and wouldn't be home for supper and until much later......reality......sometimes, you'd just like to put it off for awhile......

Thanks for the special day Marilyn!

Aw, that sounds like such a fun and inspiring day! I totally agree that we need days like that, even if it means having to get caught up another day.
