Ive spent the last 4 weeks in Georgia

The Cherry Pit Quilt Shop downtown Sevierville TN


It's hard to believe I've been here in the  
Georgia for the past 4 weeks visiting my daughter Nancy.  Wow I packed a lot of Summer Fun in the last 4 weeks since drivin down here from my home in East Tennessee on Sat May 28th.  

On my drive down I took the slower route, enjoying the scenery.  I love to stop at quilt Shops and Thrift stores along the way.  
My 1st stop was at the "Cherry Pit" Quilt Shop in Sevierville, TN.  I had arrived mid morning on  Saturday not realizing that they closed at noon. after chatting  with the staff I only had 15 minutes to shop... No problem, I went back to their discount area and picked up some scraps - (I filled a 5"x9" ziplock baggie) for $4 - I got some cute pieces of laminated Plaid fabric that I will sew into zipper pouches & some 6"x1 2" fabric pieces I will use for my applique blocks. Quite a little haul... I was too early for Row by Row since it didn't start till the end of June.  I also checked out some upcoming classes in July that I'd like to attend.  After leaving the shop I went across the street to the "Bee's Knee's Bakery" for some coffee and a pastry.  They have a cute shop and I enjoyed talking with the owner.  I plan on stopping by again when I go down for classes in July.  

The 1st couple of days I spent relaxing and enjoying Nan's screened in back porch.. A peaceful shaded haven from the summer heat.  I enjoyed the warm summer breeze. The birds loved the shade trees back there too and they sang their little hearts out while the squirrels ran up and down the trees and fence... Nans Plants are flourishing on the porch and her Christmas Poinsettia is blooming too.  

June 1st my son Earl, his wife Rikki and my youngest granddaughter arrived from Minnesota.  Nancy and Zuri drove to the Atlanta airport to pick them up.  

Summer Fun Time Began!
