Philadelphia: Breakfast at Reading Terminal Market and a Visit to the Fabric Workshop & Museum

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'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.  Here are my 3 lovely daughters.

It was fun to revisit the Fabric Workshop.  My oldest 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.
