A quiet long weekend

And this our life exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.

William Shakespeare

This weekend I'm connecting with my inner hermit. I'm headed to l'Ermitage Warden, a place that rents tiny cabins for people who want to spend some quiet time in the woods. I'm looking forward to spending a few days just listening to the wind in the trees, cuddling up by the woodstove, and taking a nighttime walk in the woods.

I will be bringing a little bit of knitting. I swatched for the gorgeous Rocky Coast cardigan I'm knitting for Hannah. Remember that you have till Monday to enter my giveaway to win Coastal Knits, in case you want to knit a Rocky Coast of your own.

Je viens de me rendre sur le lien de l'ermitage (et du coup,j'en profite pour écrire en français...).C'est super !Cela me laisse vraiment rêveuse.Ca doit être une expérience vraiment riche.J'aimerais connaître un lieu dans le même esprit en France.
Je te souhaite une très douce,paisible et pleine retraite.

Hope you have a wonderfully peaceful and creative weekend. Living in the overcrowded south of England I think those cabins would be bliss. Karen Xn

Here's to quiet and productive weekends. Every time I see a quilt lately, it makes me want one. There is nothing that says cozy better than an old quilt.
