Take a day trip out to Highlands, NC for a winding, beautiful drive into the mountains. Do visit The Bascom, a center for the visual arts. www.the bascom.org where I was fortunate to view an amazing collection of garments made by Nancy Judd, Santa Fe, NM. If you are a quilter you can not help admire the unique manner of recycling for these clothes. Everything from tires to nails to leather airline seat covers.
