Having a Blast in Pigeon Forge Tennessee

On the ride here, working on the 1888 Ohio Quilt Posey by The Sampler Girl. My bag and needfuls here~~ using DMC floss on 32 count ivory linen, 2 over 2.

The Knife Store pics

The Body Guard is the guy in the picture, rushing to his favorite store at Pigeon Forge. The Knife Store.....biggest knife store in the country. The place is huge, has alot of cookware, baskets which are local made, every cooking gadget immaginable, every knife in the world, and more. They have home made jellys and jams, honey. This is the equivelant to stitchers Gingher scissors and needle shops. LOL You could see the adrenaline rush as we were approaching the store!!! LOL

Here is a roadside elk, right by the road.

And the biggest day lilly population ever all up and down the main interstate!

Today we left early and went by the post office and sent our little packages to the little ones.

Then we moseyed through Sylva N.C. and ate at a great bakery that had the best sweet tea in Tennessee with pecan cookies. Browsed through the famous used bookstore and got 3 books for 5.00 including a hardback copy of The Lacemaker! Can't believe the prices!

Then the general store....on to Gatlinberg, Tennessee and to Pigeon Forge where we have finally got to the room after all our adventures. Dinner at Olive Garden.
Now for some late night stitching to get sleepy for bed...........
Tomorrow.......the quilt shop......YIPPEE! AND, we have mapped out a stitching store at Pigeon Forge. Tomorrow will be a full day and night and then we will head back home.
Have a good evening....
