The Asheville Quilt Guild Show is still going on through today located at the fair grounds on airport road right across from the airport. There are some beautiful quilts to see and everything from traditional to art quilts to first quilts. Our picture taking was limiting to personal use so unfortunately I won't be able to share any of the wonderful pieces with you.

I just got home from teaching at the Charlottesville Quilt Guild in Virginia. What a great guild. My hubby came along - something he doesn't normally do, but he was a big help carrying all my stuff and being my chauffeur. He also got to visit Monticello and Michie's Tavern - a very old tavern only open for lunch. Lucky guy!! But meanwhile back at the ranch, I had a lot of fun teaching. The ladies were wonderful, supportive and so talented.
The teaching facilities were a joy with lots of room to spread out and 2 huge white boards. There was also a separate room for ironing and a genuine "goody" room. I was too busy munching to get a picture of the enormous selection of yummies - all home made. The ladies told me they are "foodies" I'm so glad!

The Pisgah Inn which I've mentioned before in my blog is a nice little restaurant located on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway itself is 2 lanes that meanders through the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is truly a national treasure and beautiful to drive on. It is slow going but the views are incredible.
I'm loving this time of year and try to remember to stop and smell the roses or the thistles - ouch!

When in doubt, I turn to faces or trees, sometimes at the same time. I wanted to use a soft sheer on top of the busy fabric I chose but also wanted it to have some kind of image.

I love doing these small pieces; I've been making a lot of them for the upcoming fair with the Southern Highland Crafts Guild. Pulling out all the scraps hoping to make a dent in my stash gets me fired up.

While in New York this summer, we had the chance to visit Ground Zero in NY city. We thought it would be crazy getting in, been many years since we've commuted to NY but it went as smooth as silk. We took the train to Penn Station and then a subway which brought us to within a block of the old World Trade Center.
Both towers were easy to walk around, to look and see the names and run your hands over them.
