My trip to the Northeast had me bouncing all over: first to White Plains and Purchase, then into NYC for a late-night fashion show at a trendy club called "One", in Chelsea (the designer was one of my oldest daughter's room mates and a fellow RISD graduate), then on to Philadelphia to celebrate my daughter Luren's 26th birthday. She had a great party with lots of wonderful food, including a fantastic "rice krispy" cake made by one of her friends!
The morning after her birthday party we had breakfast at the Reading Terminal Market, a large urban farmer's market. If you ever go, I recommend the "Dutch Eating Place" run by an Amish family. Pictured left to right: Natalie, Claire, and Luren, my 3 lovely daughters.

It was fun to revisit the Fabric Workshop. Luren did a print-making fellowship the year after she graduated from RISD. The current work on exhibit is mind-blowing. The life-size felted whale is beautiful. I was not allowed to photograph the piece, but have included a link to the website where you can see an image. The photo does not do it justice.
