Last Sunday my husband and I drove a little over an hour northwest to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester Virginia. The Glen Burnie Historic House and Gardens are on the same property. This was the last day to take a tour of the house before it closes for 3 years for renovations.
The cows in the field by the parking lot were mooing like crazy when we arrived.
Some of the gardens were closed due to the snow. We were able to take a few pics on our walk to the house.
I couldn't really get a photo of the house since we weren't allowed on the grounds. That was okay because our (my) real reason for going was to see the Daughters of the Stars quilt exhibit in the museum – 16 star quilts from the Shenandoah Valley. Most were late 19th century. No photos were allowed of this exhibit but my husband snapped a few of those in the museums permanent collection.
Here are a few photos I snapped this afternoon.
The dogs love the noon day sun. Here is Duke.
Batting is just as good. Here is Penny.
As I sipped my tea I admired the color out my living room window.
Hope you have found time to stitch recently. I've stolen some stitching time from the t-shirt quilt to do a little hand quilting. A relaxing thing to do while my son filled out college applications. What a process!
