Earlier this week we drove to Asheville, NC so that I could attend the Fiber Arts Alliance monthly meeting. I write about them frequently--a wonderful group of ladies who enjoy making many different forms of fiber art.

This lady, dressed in a fabulous handmade outfit, was announcing the upcoming Project Runway type charity event called Rags to Riches. It will be held at Asheville's Jewish Community Center on Sunday, August 29th and all are welcome.

Two show-n-tell features...

Gen makes many lovely things, and this is one of her purses.

Julie always has wonderful show-n-tell including this wall quilt. There was much more show-n-tell, but my photos are not up to par.

On the way home from NC, we stopped in Greenville, SC for a late lunch at Smoke on the Water restaurant. Baseball's Shoeless Joe Jackson lived in Greenville and his statue sits outside the restaurant.

Greenville has a beautiful old downtown which has been revitalized and includes the Falls Park on the Reedy River. The Park features a suspension bridge over the river and an outdoor ampitheater. Here are some photos...

Falls Cottage of the Carolina Foothills Garden Club.

And behind the cottage is part of the park...

The view from the bridge...

My dear husband waiting for me to stop taking photos so that he can have an ice cream.
