Day 3 of Pick Four blog hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to day 3 of our tour.

I hope you enjoyed yourself yesterday and didn't eat too many Krispy Kreme doughnuts before you started clog dancing?

Today we're in Georgia, with Pat from Silver Thimble Talk. I must tell you that Pat is also an author.  She has had many patterns published in the past, now she has her own book coming out in October, called Spotlight on Neutrals.  While we're on our way to visit Pat, I'll tell you some interesting facts about our destination.
  • Georgia is known as the Peach state.  Hmm funny how my facts often involve food of some sort isn't it?
  • This is the number one producer of pecan nuts in the world.
  • It has had five official state capitals: Savannah, which later alternated with Augusta: then Louisville; Midgeville and now Atlanta.
The temperature today is expected to reach around 35C (95F), which to a Brit like me is hot, hot, hot.  Pat, I hope you've got the aircon turned up?

Here's the itinerary
Our itinerary for the whole trip:


  1. Perhaps you are hungry when you type? Perhaps you are trying to make us hungry?

    Peaches are much healthier than Krispy Kremes.

  2. I agree with Tonya - prefer the peaches. What a fun trip this is!

  3. Georgia peaches melt in your mouth! And Thanksgiving cannot happen without pecan pie!

    Pat is a darling Southern gal. I love reading her blog.

  4. Mmmmm, pecan pie ......... (starting to sound like Homer Simpson!)

  5. Georgia may be the Peach State but South Carolina produces more peaches per capita ..... not sure how they got that name. I'm just sayin' .....

  6. Pat sure is a fun gal. I've followed her blog fo-e-vahhh...... (that's southern talk :-) Thanks for sharing little insights about your blog hostesses. It's been a fun tour.

  7. Everyone wave at my DH as we graze past Florida! LOL, he's glad this is a fee free tour! Not to mention there's no fabric to bring home in it's own suitcase. Now there is something I can dream about!

  8. You are sharing lots of good information about these states. Thank you. This is a great blog hop. There are some great bloggers out there. Thank you for sharing.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

  9. Just left her blog and didn't realize she was putting out a book too. How exciting for her.

  10. Mmm, peach cobbler and pecan pie, yum!
