A beautiful old bridge.

Went to Cincinnati last week for work for a couple of days.  There was no time to go to sites like the zoo or gardens, but we did enjoy some beautiful architecture on our early evening walks.  Rain had been predicted for our stay there, but the weather was perfect!  In the main hall of the convention center I was surprised to find this wonderful quilt hanging.  I cannot find where I wrote down the name of the artist, but did want to share this.  It was really glorious in person. There was so much detail and so many embellishments.

One of several old churches.

"Freedom" Quilt
 On the way home I treated myself to a quick visit to Batiks, Etc. in Wytheville, Virginia.  If you have never been here and like batiks, you will love this place. There is a whole room devoted to batiks and they are glorious! The sale room is filled with them as well.  Amazingly enough, I behaved - I was out in 30 minutes and spent very little. I'll have to remedy that my next trip in that direction!
