A couple of weeks ago I spent a wonderful week with my good friends Mimi and John in Wilmington. They had come to NY for a wedding and I hitched a ride down with them. (I flew back to NY).
Our first stop was Gettysburg where young John works and teaches. John gave us a great tour of the college. Luckily we had time to view the battle ground. This was my best attempt at pictures:
I know it does not look like much but when you hear all the history…Well, it was very interesting.
I wonder how many people here in B’ville are aware of this. There are monuments for the militia that fought here. I took pictures of all four sides.
And of course along the way we did some shopping!
Trader Joe’s in VA. Rochester finally has a Trader Joe’s. I talked my sisters-in-law into a road trip next week.
This next picture will seem strange but it brought the teacher out in me. Do you remember learning about Fibonacci’s number? I don’t remember exactly but it has to do with patterns in nature. Look at this cauliflower. Isn’t it amazing?
G Street Fabrics in VA. A real fabric store with actual gorgeous fabrics!
When we got to Wilmington, Mimi-and John – and I kept busy.
Katie, do you remember the plant you gave Mimi? Well it is thriving!
I put bindings on three quilts for Mimi…
…including this house warming gift I made for them.
We also organized all of Mimi’s fabric. I thought I took a picture. Dang! (because everyone loves pictures of organized closets!
More pictures in my next post!
