Penland School of Crafts Weaving Concentration

Bhakti Ziek and Tommye Scanlin were the instructors for the weaving concentration course which lasts for eight of the best weeks a student could have. Alice was asked to present some of her current work for a few hours last Friday and I came to hang out and shoot some pictures.  The firs t is of Bhakti, a true national treasure in weaving. The second image is of Alice and Tommye. Tommye is an expert tapestry weaver and teacher. It was great to see a fair number of younger weavers.

Orchard Hill

Yesterday Alice and I were scheduled to visit a  railroad museum in Duluth, GA but the trip was called off because of possible rain, so we went to Orchard Hill orchard near Zirconia, SC hoping to see apple blossoms but the orchard was closed. We got some pics anyway including part of the orchard and going up the mountain some trees and valley shots.
