I've been city hopping this week. Today I was in Baltimore for one of my work days at the Maryland Historical Society, and Tuesday I spent another misty day in DC. Tuesday morning I rode to work with my hubby and had a lovely breakfast with him, then I hopped the Metro over to the Mall and did a little walking about. (In this picture of the Capital you can see they're setting up the tent for the Memorial Day concert this weekend.)
Even though the skies were gray, there were still some lovely pictures for the taking.
I love how DC has entire streets that look classic like this. This one happens to be a section of Constitution Ave...
...right across the street from my destination, The Smithsonian Museum of American History where some ladies from the Baltimore Applique Society and I met and spent a few hours upstairs in the textiles department looking at some beautiful quilts! I have to work again tomorrow, but after the busy week I've had, I plan on staying home this Memorial Day weekend, spending some time with family, and hopefully getting a little sewing in :)
Since I haven't had a Give Away in quite a while, in honor of Memorial Day weekend I thought I'd offer this Red, White & Blue bundle of fat quarters from the Heritage Prints collection from Benartex Fabrics. Leave a comment on this post, and on Tuesday morning I'll draw one random winner to send them to :)
Finally, whether you are enjoying this weekend at a cookout, graduation
party, playing in the garden, jumping in the pool,
or watching the Indy 500...take a moment to say a prayer of thanks, and
fly the American flag in honor of the ones who have given the ultimate
sacrifice to preserve our nation and keep us safe. Have a Happy and
Safe Memorial Day weekend :)
