GIRLS DAY OUT

PTA fiber group (Piecers Talkers and Appliquers) had our monthly meeting on Thursday, and as is typical, it revolved around food, chatting, and fiber.

We met in Waynesville, NC. An old town with a lovely historic district.....featuring quaint industrial type settings for restaurants.....

With yummy food.....

.....being an 'embellisher'......the raffia wrapped napkin (even if it was paper) got my attention.

This area is home to mountain music....these metal sculptures greet shoppers along Main Street.

Of course, one of our members who will remain nameless (Connie Brown) couldn't resist posing for us.

There are many shops and galleries to browse.......Primitive antiques are my favorite.......

And who could pass up these quilts w/o wanting to take one home??

I'm off tomorrow to visit with the members of Orange/Durham Quilt Guild in Chapel Hill, NC where I'll be presenting a workshop (though I think it's full) and an evening lecture, where guests are welcome..... Be sure to say hello if you are attending....

Thanks, Mary, for the fab workshop and great lecture tonight at DOQ. You are a lovely riot and a pleasure to meet.

Sasquatch and I have very fond memories of Waynesville, NC as that's were we got married and I remembered eating at that same spot for lunch. *sigh* Haven't been back since the kiddos came along!
