I've been away from the computer for awhile - vacationing to Washington, DC and doing crafts at Vacation Bible School. While in DC, I went to Smithsonian's Renwick Museum. This is a picture of a quilt there, made by Jane Burch Cochran. Isn't it wild? - buttons sewn everywhere! Click to enlarge and you can see some of the detail. (I tried to take a detail pic of it, but it came out blurry.)
I saw this quilt in a shop there - it had so many different fabrics in it! (Sorry about the lamp hanging in the way) It was so beautiful.
The Peacock Room was fabulous:
I just loved the patterns on this door.
Everything at the Renwick was so special, even the beautiful lace curtains at the windows.
This was at another museum - can you imagine having such opulence at your windows at home?
