A GREAT WEEK WITH FRIENDS

This has been a great week with friends and it is not over yet. On Monday, my friend Heather invited me over to her home for a day of sewing and for lunch. We had a great time and Heather made us a delicious salad for lunch with grilled chicken, cheese and greens. We sewed up a storm until around 3 pm. Yesterday was another great day. I was invited to go on a Quilters' Shop Tour with some more of my quilting friends, Linda, Sheila, and Mary Anne.  We started out at 8:30 in the morning and I didn't get home until 7:30 pm and we covered over 500 kms! We visited quilt shops in Shelburne, Alliston, Erin and Fergus, ON. We had lunch at one of my favorite eating places when I am up in that area called the Globe. It is a wonderful restaurant situated in an old hotel that was built in the 1800's. It is decorated with period antiques and it just has a wonderful atmosphere. The food is delicious and homemade of course. Our waiter, David gave us great service. I took a few pictures of our lunch to share with all of you. Tonight will be another great time.......dinner at Shirley's. She is a wonderful cook and she also owns a fabulous Quilt Shop called The Marsh Store, in Coldstream, ON. This will be with my friends from our little quilting group that we started over five years ago with Shirley, Brenda, Linda, Michelle, and Mary. Life is good when it is filled with such wonderful friends :)

  11. Ohhhh YUMMM!!! I can always count on you for some amazing food (and friend) pics!! I'd have loaded up on the scones...Not a place around here sells them. Yes, I could make them, but they're time-consuming, and I'm the only one who appreciates them in our household..... Sounds like a wonderful day and a wonderful friend-filled week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
