I arrived in town in the midst of a traffic jam, so went on through to the west end to find parking. Thus I started my stroll from the vantage most people coming into town would be seeing first.
The first venue on the right was Mountain Sage.
This is where the weekly Farmers' Market was also going on. I'm not the only photographer here.
Just a small sample of the market. After all, this blog is about the quilt show.
One of the newest residents in town. Beautiful.
More quilts in front of Mountain Sage:
Turn around and look across the street at All Seasons Groveland Inn.
|Everyone is coming to town for the quilt show! |
(Well, truthfully, some of them may be on their way to Yosemite.)
|Quilts at the Charlotte Hotel|

I nipped into Dori's Tea Cottage for some lunch.

|My Mediterranean Quiche course|
|Surprise! Sister-in-Law Tory and niece Jessie nip into the Tea Cottage, too!|
I loved this floral wall hanging here beside the little menu on the blackboard. The quilts inside of the tea shop were also part of the show.
The Groveland Hotel, back across the street, is also wrapped in quilts.
The guys aren't left out of this enterprise.

Thank you, Jerry.
There are flowers everywhere in town, but these roses ramble along a fence without seeming to belong to anyone. They're just putting on a beautiful show for passersby.
Here's a new business in town, in the space formerly occupied by our little quilt store, whose owner has moved to Oregon. We quilters miss Bunny. I poked my head in to see what's happening now. There are gifts and other things that are a little more new age-y than I am, but I couldn't resist a beautiful scarf, and then there was a bracelet that went with it so perfectly. They also offer massages, which I think I must try after I return from my trip.
|Mind Body Spirit Connection. And don't miss |
Backstreet Books on Back Street behind Mind, etc.
Can't forget to mention that the Flea Market which got rained out last weekend returned to town today in another portion of the park. Warm weather, with occasional overcast and breezes, made it a perfect day.
See you tomorrow.
