Bristol, N.H. - Weekend Getaway

     Our friend Rosemary invited us to spend the weekend at her family's vacation home in Bristol, N.H.. Here we all are having dinner at an Irish pub on Friday night. Lots of quilting was done over the course of the weekend. Here's Maribeth with the Hunter Star quilt that she is finishing as a wedding gift.

     The colors are truly soft and lovely.

     Edith brought her Wedding Ring quilt top. She used floral fabrics to form the rings.

     On Saturday, some of us made the trip over to Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor where we each did our part to help the NH economy. The shop contains bolt after bolt after bolt of delicious fabric. Here's a photo taken near the dock where the Mount Washington is tied up for the winter.

    As you can see, the snow is quite deep in New Hampshire and ice houses still dot the frozen lakes. The photo below was taken in Meredith.

     After Mass on Sunday, I drove up the road a bit in Bristol and took these photos.

 This photo of the brightly colored canoes against the deep blue sky is my favorite.

A fun weekend was had by all!
