In the Ashe County Courthouse…

In the Ashe County Courthouse…

I discovered this quilt:

It needed an identifying plaque, but I have no doubt it was done by the Ashe County Piecemaker’s Guild. 

The mountain scene in the middle reflects the view from the courthouse.


I had to get a close-up of the cows!Then, I found this print in the second floor lounge.


I got the artist’s name on this one:


I’ll have to see if I can find her online.

New Gemstone Beads! 

New Gemstone Beads! 

These are from Emerald Hollow Mine in Hiddenite, NC. The rubies are more raspberry red than this photo shows, but still very lucious! The rose quartz have microfacets that make them look like they glow. The sodalite cubes are more royal blue than this shows, too.I am very pleased with this purchase! These labradorite beads are from JTV. I am pleased with them, too!
