November Quilt Retreat

Our Stitch 'n Bitch group has a retreat every November at the lovely Quilliams Inn on Lake Brome southeast of Montreal.  We are truly spoiled by the staff and the food is terrific.  We are there off-season which gives us a nice advantage, and the weather this year was terrific.  A friend and I walk every morning on the nearby golf course just after sunrise.  It's past all the season of bright fall colours, but vestiges remain, and I like all the grays and soft colours that remain.

 At the back of the hotel is a protected wetland.  Early morning is always good for reflections.  Unfortunately the ducks hear me coming and roil the water in their attempts to scoot away.
 Before the walk, sunrise over the wetlands.

The same area 12 hours later with a not so good shot of the moon!

so nice to see your photos Dianne... I really missed being there. Did you take any pics of what the girls were working on. Would love to see them as well.

Looks like you had a great time as always. Wish I'd been there. I still haven't done any serious sewing since I got back, and deadlines are now beginning to appear.
