Weekend at my daughter' house

The first photo is of my daughter's house in Stokes County, North Carolina. It is about a mile from Hanging Rock State Park and is located on the side of a mountain! I wouldn't want to have to mow her lawn!! The second photo is of my daughter, Kathleen, and her cat Grace. The third photo is also of Grace. Her other cat, Ace, didn't want his photo taken. I did get one taken, but the two cats look so much alike that I uploaded the wrong photo!! The only difference in their appearance is that Grace is shorthaired and Ace is longhaired! I will try again to put post a picture of Ace later. The last photo is of my daughter's Tri-loom. She likes to do Tartan Shawls. This one is of her own design, but doesn't it look like a Campbell? She's using Lion Brand "Homespun" yarn for this one.

I left here (my home) early Saturday morning & it took me an hour to drive to her home. She had errands to run in Winston-Salem, so we spent the whole day there. I don't drive much anymore, so it was a real challenge for me to just drive to her home. She drove to Winston. Arrived back at her home about 5:30pm and I was really tired. We cooked supper and watched movies the rest of the evening. I left to come back to my home in the morning, as she was leaving to go to her church. All in all, it was a very good trip. My daughter has a lot of energy, I do not!
(Edit: I just noticed that the black spot in the driveway of the photo of her house is Ace!! He's a big fellow!)

Hi June,

Kathleen has a lovely home, inside and out. I'm glad you two spent time together this weekend.
Take care.

I missed this entry. What a great share and nice looking daughter and the cats are like twins for heavens sake. The shawl is so nice. I envy her talent.

I'm so glad to hear you had a wonderful time with your daughter.
Love her house. You're right about the grass though. lol
I have not seen a shawl made this way. Very interesting.
