HAPPY ANNIVERSARY LINDA AND THOMAS!!
And here are some of the quilters…this whole downstairs area held their friends and family.
We had a wonderful meal- your choice of mushroom chicken or salmon, fresh veggies and baked new potatoes…delish!! Oh and of course Merridale’s own apple cider and wine.
Oh, I have to show you what the chef…
..made for dessert…
..our own little apple pie…make that our own BIG apple pie…this is on a DINNER plate!!
BUT I had NO trouble downing this…delish…perfection!!
All of the pies were baked in this brick oven…no wonder I can’t get my pastry that light and flakey…I NEED one of these ovens!! ;o)
This is the view from our table. Isn’t it lovely…minus those ugly rain clouds!! Weddings take place down where the white tents are and over to the right is their spa…which you would HAVE to go to if you ate too many of those wonderful pies!!
This vineyard is about a five minute drive from my house. The Cowichan Valley hosts many, many such vineyards and restaurants. Our climate is perfect for growing grapes, berries and apples.
Let me end with this picture of Signey, Laura and Bev…three extraordinary quilters and friends. Isn’t Laura a character (in the hat!!)…the apple doesn’t fall far…that’s her mother, Marveline ‘hiding’ behind the post!!
Marveline is one of the ‘original’ founding members of our group…35+ odd years ago!! All of the ladies in our group are unique and different but all are wonderful…tied together with their love of quilting!
Oh I HAVE to include this picture~last but certainly not least is this picture of Janice…she just became a Grammy…she is just back from Halifax after seeing her little grand-daughter. Did she bring us a picture to share…NO she brought us an album!!
YES, Janice she is cute…VERY, VERY cute!!
Have a merry Monday and Happy Quilting!!
