Gratitude for the Weekend

Friday had wings as I looked at the Spring Arts Festival (Palustris Festival) in Pinehurst, Southern Pines area to see what was going on. The trees in Southern Pines were "yarn bombing"  which created such conversations!

What propelled me out of the house and onto the road was a lecture by Vivian Jacobson who worked with Marc Chagall for the last 11 years of his life. This time she was speaking on the Reconciliation Windows at St. Stephens Church in Mainz, Germany. By the time she was finished , I wanted to go see the light shine through the blue of those windows. 

Saturday, we looked at old quilts and handwork at the Shaw House. One room had quilts that were buried 
during the Civil War. ( I learned something new!)
So we popped into a new quilting store. Got to the new CHEESE shop which has all local homemade cheese. We grabbed a baquette and some cheese from Chapel Hill. Nothing could be finer!

What a nice treat for you after all the wedding excitement. :)

Did you hear about the 'new' Van Gogh that is in a show now?

Love the van Gogh! We are almost finished with our study of him.

It's fun to know where you are talking about! And what a lot of work that yarn bombing!

Another beautiful day today and I must say I'm loving the cooler weather.

That blue is divine...wouldn't it be amazing to see those windows in person.

I have a cousin who lives in Pinehurst NC! Small world sometimes.

Your day out sounds very pleasant and interesting.
