The Great Smoky Mountains
After flying into Charlotte NC to spend a few days with very old friends I set of on my journey.
First stop was in the Tennessee mountains where I was meeting up with Cindy Blackberg who I originally meet when she lived in Florida.
We had got to know each other when I had my quilt shop and she was originally going to come over to the UK and do a workshop for me here. Well it didn't work out as Cindy moved up to Tennessee that year but we have always kept in touch.
We met for coffee in Townsend and looky looky what I got three of Cindy's stamping kits and the latest BHG quilting magazine with her Honeycomb Stars quilt in it. The apple core stamp is also featured in Jo Morton's book Vintage Journey, Cindy made this quilt for herself and one for Jo also.I also love the spools or Klosje's as they are being referred to on so many blogs. It was such a generous gift for Cindy to give me and now I can really have some handwork to piece while I am sitting with Dick and he decides to doze off, which is often. (Must be my stimulating conversation). Cindy does have all these for sale on her web site and she even does retreat in the smokies.
Have a look
I am going to start dipping into my repro fabric stash and have a go with these lovely stamps, Thanks Cindy.
Till next time.
