A Sunday Drive ----

We have made a plan this morning --- to hop in the car, and go drive up into the beautiful blue ridge mountains to spend the day around Boone, NC.

I had plans to put the binding on Florabunda so I could stitch it in the car. I just decided “to heck with it”. I’ll just take hexies.

It’s far way too hot to be buried under a queen sized quilt attempting to bind in a car!


I want to see MOUNTAINS!

There may be iphone-o-grams along the way.

There may not be ---

This is a holiday for US!

Catch you later!


Appalachian State University, Beautiful Boone, NC!


  1. Have a great day ... what a good idea ... enjoy the beautiful scenery! Travel safe ;-)

  2. What a beautiful drive, Bonnie...enjoy your Sunday!

  3. Now that is my kind of day! Enjoy the mountains, your hubby, and a day of refreshing relaxation! I'm heading out for a long long walk, followed by lazing away on the dock!

  4. Enjoy yourself. No doubt you'll come back with some new inspiration.

    OMG, even though I live in Indiana I have traveled in that part of the country and LOVE it. Your pics have just opened my eyes and heart for a return visit to your part of the world. Thank you for a relaxing day for me through your eyes. Have a safe drive Bonnie.

  14. Wonderful day! Your shot of the university looks very much like the one I took of my neighborhood from the top of the mountain I walk to from my home, except we don't have the trees--desert setting here. so glad you are enjoying your time off with family!

    Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful state? I live on Lake Norman near Mooresville, NC and we go to the mountains of NC often. Of course I also think that lots of other parts of our country are beautiful too, but nothing beats home!

  16. Looks so peaceful and cool to me! Hope the day was what you needed. :)
