A Fun Relaxing Day in the mountains

Mr. Darcy and I took a day just to relax and take a ride through the country in the mountains. Tomorrow evening I will post the pics of our adventures. Alot of folks have asked me by personal email, in person and through the blog about the area as it is a frequent place in October to view a beautiful plethora of nature and its colorful show of hue.
I also got a new stitchy sampler in the mail with a pretty litte pair of scissors to post as well.
Stay tuned tomorrow for many pics.....................

This is just a preview..............it's quiet, and cool here, never gets above 84 degrees even in July ( per the one of the tour guides) and this is about my 7th time nearest to Heaven, I call it.

Brasstown Bald Mountain.

You can see 4 states on a clear day.

I can definitely see the world in DMC up here!  :P
Have a nice evening!

Sleepy Tuesday~~~hot at the homestead but beautiful sunshine

In deep thought. She has so many things to think about. Like what toy to play with today and what treat to select from.

I think Abbie had a late night.

Because after her morning treat she is just snoozing away.

Mr. Darcy and I are about to go explore some of the North Ga. mountains,
so yee-haw! putting my cowgirl hat on! I'll take my camera with me!

Colonial Kids~~~~

Colonial Kids
designed by Feathers in the Nest

This morning, I awoke dreaming I was at Colonial Williamsburg and basking in the beauty of the area with the museums, the shops, and the culture of colonial days.
Then I was inspired to put my thoughts to graph for a design I think you might like if you love Colonial art as much as I do! I probably could spend at least 1 week if not 2 there at Colonial Williamsburg.
Yesterday, I talked about loving sillouettes and I guess with both in mind I created this design.
I hope you enjoy!
You can use any color of course but I am going to stitch in a Colonial Blue and Dark Brown but I haven't yet selected the fabric.
Overdyed threads would look best, of course, with this but any fibers will make a good sampler.

You can add initials, dates, etc to personalize for your "kids".

I'm excited now and putting down my BBD BAP to start on this. I LOVE sillouettes. Then, I will pick back up on the BBD sampler Love One Another in the My Dear Friend book.

You can also stitch just a boy or a girl motif for a sweet nursery or child's room.

If you do stitch this up, share with me by email and I will show on the blog for others to see!
This will be offered as a freebie for a limited time.

Well this weekend, I have finally done.........nothing....yep, and it feels good for a change.
I walked outside a time or two and felt like I walked off the plane in Arizona. HOT, is not the word for it. Oh, it's this time of year, mid July, that I start to long for Fall. Fall is my favorite time of year and it's when the mountains show off their colors in all ranges and shades, apple cidar is on my stove warming for friends, and the chunky sweaters and sock feet are warming by the fireplace again in the evenings. But for now..............

 The dog days of Summer are here.

Even Abbie is ready to go for a stroll when the weather cools off.
Here in the North Georgia mountains, I can certainly say that in the 11 years I have lived here, this has been the hottest Summer evah! Even though it's pretty hot outside, Miss Abigail, picks a cozy spot in the cool air-conditioning.

 I think she is praying for another oatmeal cookie.

 I kinda used some of the ones I made for treats this weekend and she loved it.

 I guess you could say she is my Colonial kid. :)
