The Rest of the Trip
This is the booklet from the exhibit. The weavers were all signing each others copies. I did not get everyone's but the majority of them. It was funny having people ask for your autograph, my ten minutes of fame.
Here is a picture of Waterfront park from the steps of the City Gallery. I loved this view, it was quite beautiful.
This is a closeup of the fountain, shaped like a pineapple. I thought it was really a pretty fountain.
When I was in Charleston I made these collages in my moleskine journal with receipts and momento's I collected. They were really fun to do.
After the Thread Project events were over Pam and I just hung out. She took me to the Isle of Palms beach again and I spent the afternoon there by myself and it was really heavenly. I had lunch at Coconut Joes and walked the beach and went shopping and got these treasures.
On my last day in Charleston I spent walking around downtown. I went to the Charleston Museum. I found out it is the oldest museum in the United States. It had wonderful exhibits. I especially like the exhibit Clothing to Dye for. That was something I could really relate to and the clothes were great. Then I visited the Joseph Manigault house. It was a summer home for a Rice Plantation family and was very interesting to see. For some reason I forgot to take pictures that day. I was really enthralled with all the wonderful architecture in Charleston. Pam took me to see some really beautiful homes. I was more in the state of oh thats cool instead of snapping pictures. I regret I did not do more of that.
I brought Jack along on the trip, here he is with Tripp Pam's cat.
One Day Pam brought this Magnolia home, It was so lovely and the smell just incredible, I wish I could send that fragrance to you.
Pam had these Peony's in my room and they were just gorgeous. I thought they were real at first. She had lovely touches like this all through the house.
.... And last but not the least our Pamela doing the Violette pose...
