It’s my first visit through this area and I wish I could spend more time---there is so much to see and do. This place is a GEM ---gorgeous rolling hills, fabulous history and beautiful university campuses!
We had time between yesterday’s workshop and my lecture last night to take a side trip to the University ((Go Wildcats!)) and see the display of antique quilts hanging in the library rotunda. I took pics, but they were so HIGH UP on the walls that they looked dwarfed in miniature and skewed because I was shooting UP at them. But I’ll see if any are worth posting later. If you happen to be coming through Lexington, it’s worth a stop --- I think we paid $2.00 parking for a carful of 4 of us …..50 cents a piece to see the quilts? Priceless!
Our workshop was held at the Fayette County extension center ----AMAZING building, oodles of light and space. We had 33 quilters, and could have fit 33 more ---it was a fun and relaxing day. During the morning the sky opened up and we enjoyed an early autumn thunderstorm while we sewed away inside. It was perfect quilt class weather --- and how fresh and green everything was when the storm stopped.
The property boasts beautiful gardens and is reaching the end of its summer bounty with tomatoes and other veggies in varieties I’ve never seen before.
Here is the slide show of yesterday’s class, I hope you enjoy it!
