Wintry Quilted Wonderlands

Did you experience the joys, and maybe a few trials, as you celebrated Christmas with your family? On Tuesday, my husband and I traveled to see relatives. The scenery was exceptional as we drove into a winter wonderland.

Many of our kinfolk live in the snow country of western NC. During last week’s blizzard, they accumulated several feet of gorgeous snow. Every road passes acres of tree farms in that Christmas tree growing area. They seem to form a patchwork quilt design when property lines converge. Of course, tree farms have barns and sheds for storing equipment. Many barns or businesses are adorned with a quilt block.


We rambled along the back roads one afternoon to capture some new pictures of quilt blocks and the wintry landscape. I’m posting two favorites for your viewing pleasure. You’ll find more on the Photo Page and Store.

On our way home, I couldn’t resist a stop at the Unicoi County Heritage Museum in Erwin, TN to capture “Mosey Inn’s” wintry side. The house is lovely in every season.

I’ll wish each of you a Happy New Year and God’s blessings in the days ahead. January promises to be a busy month as I plot and start writing the next novel in the Quilt Trail Series. Life is hectic while marketing Grow Old With Me and writing. I appreciate each one who passes the word to friends or writes to say you’ve enjoyed my novel.
