Back to Work After a Little R&R...

We just got back from spending an amazing week in the Smoky Mountains.  This was our cozy cabin in the woods that I'm now totally in love with.  (Note the Bernina sitting on the table inside ~ it was the perfect balance of getting out and about, and also staying in and getting some fun personal sewing done!)

This was my sewing buddy for the week.  He smiled down on me as I sewed away and watched T.V.  Together we put together some more Farmer's Wife blocks for the group swap I'm in, and of course we got more sewing in on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt :)

 ...And then there was the getting out in the fresh air ~ especially welcomed after I've spent pretty much all year indoors working at the Quilt Shop.  It was nice to drive through the mountains...

 ...and just breathe.

 And we got some hiking and exploring in around Cades Cove.  Simply beautiful :)

 It was the perfect time to visit Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg TN ~ The weather cooperated, and we were able to drive through the mountains without icy roads, got all our Christmas Shopping finished in the towns decorated for their Winterfest Celebration (even went to a few quilt shops along the way), and enjoyed the National Park and Crafter's Community with very few tourists.  We're back home now, thankful, refreshed, and ready to take on 2015 :)

Enjoy the day!
