After several days of rain forecasts it finally did begin to rain tonight in Nova Scotia. I don't mind at all since I have had four more lovely days than what the Weather Channel predicted. The Mayflower Quilters Retreat began yesterday at the beautiful Pictou Lodge. The pictures on Pictou Lodge's website do not do the place justice. It is remote and beautiful.
Each of the teachers at the retreat has their own little cabin. This is mine.
At 8 a.m. this morning I opened my cabin door to head for breakfast at the main lodge and was greated by this sight.
Here is a shot of the three teachers teaching at this year's retreat. On the left is Jane Sassaman from Harvard, Illinois (just outside Chicago). In the middle is Daphne Greig from Vancouver Island (North Saanich), and on the right is me.
Once again I am taken by the friendliness and warmth of Nova Scotians! Wish you were here.
