Urbanité x 2

This is an exhibit by two artists, Heather Dubreuil and John Vasilinskas who have combined their talents to show architecture  from Montreal and overseas in their art.  It's a lovely gallery with lots of light and the details of the show are at the end of the pictures. 

A great place for a light and delicious lunch is just down the road at Café Prague.

Quilting Retreat 2014 with Stitch 'n Bitch

This was our 10th retreat at the hotel on Lac Brome.  This year it has new owners and has been renamed the Auberge Lac Brome (formerly the Quilliams Inn).  Not too much has changed so far, and the food is still delicious with duck confit, my favourite, featured on the menu a few evenings.  The workroom is lovely in the day time with all the windows overlooking the lake, and the lighting was vastly improved for working in the evening.

Three of us managed dawn walks on the golf course.  Dawn, of course, is at 6:45 these days!  
And we did a little shopping in Knowlton, and stocked up at the Brome Lake Duck store.
And a lot of quilting was done.

We do dress for dinner!
