In the Mountains

The reason I've been away a few days is because...we're away for a few days! Hubby and I are in the mountains of the Carolinas - absolutely gorgeous. We are renting a house instead of staying in a hotel like we usually do. This is the view from the back of the house. WOW! What a view to wake up to every morning!

The real purpose of the trip has been to see Daughter 2 get inducted into Phi Beta Kappa at Furman University - Congrats, Elizabeth! Plus, she's been really sick, so we were able to get her to a doctor and get antibiotics - yay!

Hubby's dad is back at home taking care of the doggies. Since we've been gone, there was a really bad storm back home. Apparently our power was off for about 18 hours - just as well that we're not there, though there may be some refrigerator clean out in my near future.
Yesterday we spent the afternoon in Asheville, NC, eating a nice lunch (veggie burger and sweet potato fries) and visiting a few art galleries. I spotted this lovely nine patch quilt at one of them.
Upon closer inspection, I realized it is made of old metal. Cool!
And I found hexies - on a crosswalk of all places!

Today hubby is playing golf on top of a mountain, and I am relaxing in this beautiful home on top of another mountain. I brought along all my applique projects and haven't had a chance to pick up a needle. So this morning, I will sew while I enjoy the view. This afternoon (after golf and sewing), we will explore the area a bit more. And tomorrow we'll head back home to the doggies.
