We’re back, but I still have some great photos to share of places we visited in North Carolina. We stopped one day in the Biltmore Village. This is a shot of the All Souls Cathedral (Episcopal) – isn’t that architecture gorgeous?!
And this is a shot of some of the shops – each was unique and had interesting things:
I picked up this darling hedgehog just because he begged to come home with me (I’m weak that way …):
He’s actually a Christmas tree ornament with a clip on his underside, but I suspected he would like to be in my sewing room all year, so there he lives!
And this is the best-looking McDonald’s I’ve seen (on the outskirts of the Village) – and no, we didn’t eat there. We ate in a bakery and café – great choice – I had a tasty quiche and peanut butter pie (well, I was on vacation, after all!).
We also stopped in Chimney Rock:
I found this great rack in an antique store. It was displayed with small thread spools, but I thought my few thread cones would fit and they do!
And I found this beautifully enameled magnetic butterfly to hold my glasses in my sewing room. It is now clipped to my quilting frame and my glasses now have a home.
Speaking of my quilt frame, this is what I did with the leftovers from the Mickey Mouse quilt that went to India – this is Mickey Mouse 2 – it still needs to be bound.
Now, on to more quilting …
