I found some time to grab a friend for lunch out in the beautiful October sunshine!
I picked my buddy Pat Sloan up at her lovely home and we drove down to Reston town plaza where there are a plethora of shops, boutiques, and restaurants!
We both agreed on Mexican and quenched our hunger for guacamole and chips :-)
I absolutely loved the painted vases at the front greeting counter! Just look at all of that color and pattern!
We spent some after lunch time walking around the plaza and enjoying the other passersby and dipping in and out of various shops to occupy our time.
It was the perfect respite in a very very busy sequence of days and I'm glad she had the free time to spend with me!
No matter how far, nor how near, quilting friends are the best! :-)
