I took this picture at a quilt shop in Wisconsin and immediately felt peaceful. I could just imagine drinking my morning coffee (although mine would be Diet Coke) or sketching from this little white weathered chair. Can you picture yourself there? Do you have a special place that gives you peace and quiet? I sure hope so because we all need time to be by our self.
