On Saturday I came home from a sew-in and on Sunday left with Hubby for Richmond, Virginia for some sightseeing. The city is so rich with history. We walked many, many miles each day and found ourselves constantly looking up at the amazing architecture. There are also many phenomenal historical statues. Below left is the city hall and the third is the state capital.
On day two we had a few hours of rain so we headed to the Richmond Museum of Fine Arts. What a treasure filled with exquisite exhibits! AND…there was a special exhibition of quilts: Cosmologies from the Tree of Life: Art from the African American South with a quilt display of Gees Bend. All were made of silk or corduroy and hand pieced and quilted. Such a treat especially since I have long been a fan!
On day four we headed to Southport, NC for some R&R. Walking, bicycle riding and enjoying the waterfront for three days was so relaxing.
