I went on a road trip last week with a couple of friends. We headed about an hour south to Lowell, MA, to check out the New England Quilt Museum. What a humbling and creative experience to see the works of these talented fabric artists.
They have a wide range of quilts on exhibit from across the Country including traditional quilts, amazing embroidery work and fabric art.
I am always amazed by the quilters and their marvelous works, but I have never seen this type of machine embroidery work.
Lowell is a very eclectic town and from the quilt museum we walked the cobble stone streets to the Boott Cotton Mills which I’ll tell you about on Thursday.
I always wish you a good week, but after watching the news from Las Vegas, I also wish you a safe week.
I’m not sure safety is something we can take for granted anymore because I don’t think we understand this sea of violence. Prayers to all those families affected by this tragedy here in the US, and prayers to those who are trying to figure out why and if future tragedies like this can be prevented.
There are so many suffering from natural and man-made disasters across our global community that this Monday it feels like a heavy weight on my chest. Be safe, be happy, and enjoy each and every day.
