Vonna's Shop & Photo Hunt # 126 - String(s)

Today I had a lovely day out at Rebecca's grandparent's cottage! Her family's cottage is about half way between my place and her place so its a great meeting point for us. Also we've been trying to arrange this for about a year now so that us girls could stitch in the lovely screened in porch (no bugs) and the boys (Curits & Todd) could go fishing. Finally that happened today. The cottage is out on a beautiful lake, which I have to say I'm hoping we can go back again so I can get out in the boat with my camera, we went for a tour on the lake after dinner but there wasn't enough light for pictures.

I spent the day working on Vonna's Neighbourhood Round Robin, and I finished up the last of it tonight! I hope you like it Vonna!

Oh I'd love to be there at that cottage. It looks heavenly.

Your little stitching shop looks great. I bet Vonna's neighbourhood is really thankful to you for opening their very own LNS. lol

How creative to use Vonna's name for the title of the cottage, looks so homey.

Your cottage looks wonderful in Vonna's neighbourhood robin. Love the cottage pics. What part of Ontario is that?

Vonna said...

I love it and the name is PERFECT :O)
What a sweet, sweet addition Dani :o)
Thank you!

I'm hijacking your comments Dani - Angela asked where the cottage was, it is in the township of Leeds and Lansdowne on the part of water called Black Rapids which links Red Horse Lake and Gananoque Lake.

I had a WONDERFUL time on Saturday and I know Curt did as well, he asked when you were coming again:-)I didn't seem to accomplish much stitching but it was lovely chatting with you nevertheless.

We will have to look at the calendar and schedule another visit in as soon as we can.

Vonna's neighbourhood looks wonderful here, as well as in person.
