To Virginia and Back.


This past month I went to Richmond, VA for work and loved every minute about it! 

I loved the city and everything was so inspiring and made me want to come home and QUILT!

Look at the color of that sky. So gorgeous and so blue at 30,000 feet.

Flying to Richmond

The city itself was also gorgeous. The Fan District where I stayed was home to the cutest houses! And one even had actual cathedral windows!

Then there was the AMAZING Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This museum just recently completed a new expansion and both the building and its collections were gorgeous.

These were some of my most favorite pieces on exhibit. Especially this first one!

All in all it was a great trip and it totally gave me a bajillion crafting ideas.

There are tons of colors, patterns, shapes swirling around my head just waiting to get out! 

(Please excuse the quality of the photos as they were all taken with my phone.)


  1. Well, tell your phone it takes really nice pictures!

  2. Oh you should come and stay in RVA for a long time. I have that first picture of your Museum pieces on my phone as well. I want to make it into a quilt! Next time you are in RVA look me up and I will take you to some wonderful fabric/yarn and craft shops. I am glad you love our quaint little city!

  3. We lived in Richmond for a couple of years back in the late 80s, and I drove by the Fan all the time to go visit my aunt on that side of town. It was great seeing those pics and brought back memories. We're two hours from Richmond now but still go through there occasionally. Great city.
