Time to get caught up! Want to share – this was a special and wonderful trip for me. I had the opportunity to get caught up with an old friend from Omaha who moved 3 1/2 years ago to outside DC, she was my contact person and reason to come east and teach/lecture for three Quilt Guilds.
I was able to able to add a couple of fun events to my trip, an afternoon at the Eastern Shore Quilt Study Group and a morning program at the DAR Museum in DC with other ladies who enjoy antique quilts and quilt history. I have to tell you these ladies study quilt history more than myself, but I have picked up a few things over the years to share.
When teaching I’m not the one taking pictures, I’ve seen my quilts and so have you. 🙂
I did take pictures of quilts/blocks etc. brought to the Quilt Study Group gathering, I was privileged to take pictures, and promised not to share or publish them.
I did take pictures at the DAR Museum, again we were privileged to take snaps but not to share or publish them.
However I do have a few snaps to share!
We parked in a parking garage about three blocks from the DAR Museum, enjoyed a Starbucks before joining the group at the Museum. We walked along the back side of the White House on our jaunt to the Museum.
After the DAR Museum, we walked to lunch, there were six of us that had the time, the others moved on to other errands. We ate here on the recommendation of one of the ladies who used to work downtown DC.
It was raining after lunch and we needed to walk back to the Parking Garage. We stopped at the Renwick Gallery and did a quick walk through, then up went the umbrellas and continued walking.
I will remember this trip for quite some time for many reasons. Friends, quilts old and new, teaching and sharing, seeing accomplishments of delight, delicious food, and also some time to watch three movies with my hostess in the comfort of their home while stitching (hand quilting) the memories into my small quilt.
As always good to be home and will be sharing a few more snaps in the next post – stay tuned.
