How many are familiar with the old Kingston Trio song "Hang down your head Tom Dooley"?
It turns out this is a true story! The real characters name was Tom Dula – and his story is here on the Blue Ridge Pkwy--Wilkes County was the home of Tom Dula.
The sky cleared enough that we were able to take a short drive on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. – and stop at this overlook to gaze in wonder at the view.
Father and son take in the sight together – it's been a wonderful weekend up here in the mountains!
Jason headed home last night – he has things to do, people to see, and work to tend to – but we sure loved having him up here in the mountains with us and hope he will return again soon!
The rain continues to fall – and we are on our way back to Lowe's yet once again! We are installing a new kitchen sink faucet, and there were some things that we needed that we forgot yesterday.
The sewing room is taking shape – the old green table has been lifted onto bed risers and will become a new cutting table.
I am picking up thumbtacks to text the old tablecloth flannel side out to the walls for use as a design wall.
I hope to get to IKEA this week for a solid wood table for the sewing machines – the plastic folding tables are bouncy bouncy bouncy when trying to sew especially with three machines!
Three machines? Why yes of course! I am having my first sleepover And sew-a-thon!
Karen and Lisa are coming up on Thursday to spend Thursday night. We will spend all day Thursday and all day Friday sewing our brains out!
With love from Buck Mountain –
