Wonderful Wednesday - Hendersonville Style

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  This week I will share the remainder of my Spring mountain trip.  As you may recall, I recently (nearly a month ago!) spent time at A Mountain Quiltfest.  My event finished up just as Knittingsuek and Needleb were in a class in nearby (a relative term) Hendersonville, North Carolina.

I decided to go via the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Scenic Route:

I've got photos from the "dash cam":

Coming out of Gatlinburg, I began noticing signs from last year's big fire:

There may be a sad memory quilt somewhere in here:

My favorite things about the mountains are the tunnels...

The winding roads...

And the mountain streams:

Wow!! The temperature dropped when I stopped for this "selfie":

The bright blue and yellow specks upstream are kids.  Mom offered to spare me from only having a (not great) selfie picture:

No one was along to refuse a stop at a Scenic Overlook:

Amazing how the view changes with just a few steps:

Several shots from The Last Tree Standing...

At least, I think that's what it was called:

Oh!  A larger mountain stream, closer to the road:

I'm getting better at this "selfie" thing:

Entering Cherokee, North Carolina:

Delicious!!  Just like old times:

A view of the Paul's Family Restaurant sign:

It doesn't look like much, but as soon as I passed by, memories of our Cherokee family vacation came flooding back and I just HAD to eat where we ate on that trip:

New to me:

Aiming for a mountain view:

Lake J, as seen from the golf course across the road:

Arrival at the classroom in Beginnings Quilt Shop:

Britt is certainly making progress on her class sample:

Sue is getting individual attention from teacher, Patsy Thompson:

Waiting well:


OK, so none of us actually drank this stuff...

This was all for Hilary's benefit - to see what she was missing:

The Departure:

Until next time...
Quilting adventures await!!!

  1. Looks like a great time! I love the BRP, too, especially all the little streams. I'll bet Patsy Thompson is a great teacher.
