Yesterday I went up an open house at Arcadia Mills. I had never been to the location before. You can read all about the mill here. Arcadia Mill
A primary reason for going was to see two friends working on hooked rugs. For a long time, I've wanted to learn rug making but didn't know anyone who could point me in the right direction. I'm expecting to hear from them in the next day or so as to when a class will be held by Ms. J. Can't wait!!
Crossing Pond Creek on the swinging bridge was an adventure, particularly when more than one person was on it at the same time.

I was amazed how many people didn't know what these winged creatures were. Termites are very common here in the south, and at various times they come up out of the ground and swarm through the air. This swarm was resting on a nearly rotted piece of debris.
These guys were likely warm in their period clothing. Looked to be wool for a number of them.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable day.
Y'all take care.
