The eyes of tiny faces always give me hope, and being with the people I love fills my spirit. Here is James Taylor singing In Carolina in My Mind, with beautiful scenes of the Blue Ridge mountains.
As you can imagine, once Ashley, Sarah and the boys left, my heart needed a bit of time to adjust. Sarah flew in to help Ashley with the drive back. Although I will be home for the holidays, I wanted to think of something here that I can enjoy and find inspirational. Something different than I might find back home.
Fabric always inspires me. So my first stop was a visit to the most wonderful fabric shop. The Little General.
Gina writes a blog and owns the most gorgeous fabric shop.
Gina and I shared some contacts and inspirational books and magazines. I love her Facebook page.
Bonnie is having a giveaway, which ends October 27th. You just have to leave a comment, like her on Facebook or share her giveaway. The fabric collection WINGED, shown on Gina's quilt above. Bonnie is giving away 10 yards, 10 pieces of fabric in the colorway of your choice.
All in all, I think that being able to nest in North Carolina again, gives me an opportunity to take a breath of fresh ideas from the windows of inspiration here.
