Cottage Quilting!

Hi all!!

I have some awesome news!  After about a decade of passively searching - we have bought a cottage!  We couldn't be more thrilled and excited to embark on this journey!

It is in Barry's Bay and our cottage is on Lake Kamaniskeg which means Shimmering Waters.


The water is so nice, clear and clean, with a sandy beach (natural) and a very gradual decent to deeper water.


Our lot is fairly treed with lots of privacy.  The lake is still fairly undeveloped with lots of Crown land so it won't become overpopulated any time in the near future which really appeals to us!


So of course I brought up my sewing machine and a UFO that I needed to finish the top!  One evening after it had rained, and, the bugs were pretty bad, I pulled out my cottage quilting gear and set to work!  Look at my view from my sewing machine!



By the end of the weekend I had finished my Lady Mary Downton Abbey quilt top in a very leisurely fashion!  I am thrilled!  So of course I had to take a cottage picture with it!  This pretty lady is all ready for the hand quilting frame now!

So, get ready for more cottage quilting from me!  I have a bunch of projects planned!!

Congratulations that looks like an amazing spot. How peaceful to be on the lake and surrounded by trees. Great sewing spot and I love the quilt.
