Some Stash & Some History

Rich and I started the day at The Stitch & Frame Shop in Rock Hill, SC. I picked up a few charts that have been on my wish list. I didn't get any fabric or fibers. If I had I would be starting one of these.

After that we went on to Cowpens Battlefield.

This is a beautiful park. It was such an important battle of the Revolution. Rich and I walked around the battlefield. It was beautiful. I saw some wild turkeys. Then we watched the brief film in the visitor's center about the battle. I think Daniel Morgan is one of my favorite figures from the Revolution.

After that Rich and I headed down the road towards Greenwood, SC. We made another stop at Walnut Grove Plantation in Roebuck, SC.

The home was built in 1765. The home has many ties to the Revolution and the battle of Cowpens. It was worth the stop.

Tomorrow is the start of the rally. It will be great to see friends.
I am going stitch some now. I will be setting my alarm so that I can watch some of the royal wedding in the morning.

Of course my thoughts have been with all the people affected by the terrible storms yesterday.
