In just a couple of weeks Tom and I will celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. So....
Last week we planned an early getaway and spent a few days in the southwestern part of our state and attended the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon--very interesting area to visit and one we'd never traveled to before now.
Our agenda included stops at quilt shops (three of them), country stores (I lost count), antique shops (a couple), a yarn shop, eating at little out-of-the-way places, and attending a play at Barter Theater (below):
Tom went fishing one morning at Holston Lake...I watched him fish while working on one of my UFOs. Very relaxing.
This area is well known for hiking and biking the Virginia Creeper Trail. I had never heard of this trail and actually had no intention of getting on a bike...much less biking the 17-mile-downhill trail. Famous last words...
Tom rented us both bikes. Uh-oh.
Fortunately for all of us, there won't be pictures posted of me riding on the adult trike...thank you for asking though. :) Here's my favorite scene along the route:
We had a wonderful time! It's good to be back home though and settling into the routine again. Both my Bernina and my computer need dusting off so I can get back in the quilting and blogging business!
