at first I thought I was seeing things,but soon realized this was no hallucination. I took a closer look.
Back on the patio, relaxing after a lovely lunch and some errands. Rosalie Dace and I were picked up and chauffered by a delightful employee of The Stitchin' Post, Jill, who took us over to the Clearwater Gallery, where Jean has an exhibit up. The gallery is also a wine bar/restaurant, which is a great idea. We sat outside and had paninis and a highly original soup: kale, sausage, and sweet potato chowder. I really enjoyed it! (at it all before I could take a picture - LOL).
Jean and Valori were greeting people, and behind them was an exhibit of student work from Jean's classes.
On our way out after lunch, Rosalie pointed out this interesting tree, which she referred to as a "weeping something or other." Exactly. A name that can come in very handy from time to time.
We headed over to the Stitchin' Post - a shop to die for. It was pretty busy, so Rosalie picked up some supplies and we left without really having the luxury of browsing. But I had to take some photos; even the samples on the walls are gorgeous. And I think they sell every quilt book in print that is worth having.
