I feel fortunate to live in the picturesque and magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains. My inspiration comes from the beauty that surrounds me, living in "God's Country" and from being a country girl.

Quilts on Barns

Quilt on Barn

On October 16, 2012, I had more fun than should be allowed on my first tour bus trip to Monroe County, West Virginia to see “Quilts on Barns”.  I didn’t know a soul but had a blast anyway!  We viewed lovely landscapes during peak foliage season, toured circa 1800 historic sites and saw spectacular quilt blocks painted on barns and other structures.  We visited a historic covered bridge, gristmill, and saw a pottery demonstration by Marcia Sprinston-Dillon, blind since birth.  What an amazing and inspirational lady!  Click here to see slide show of photos.
