Sneak Peek + Angel Oak, Johns Island, South Carolina

We arrived in Charleston, South Carolina late Saturday. While on vacation, over the next week, I will be mixing up vacation photos and sewing/quilting projects that I am finishing (with those 4 hours a day ;-)). So far:

  • We spent 1 day at the beach, close to our rental – Seabrook Island which was great as it has one side on the Atlantic and the other side in a coastal lagoon – perfect for kids.
  • Today, we got in our first part of sight-seeing in, we went to Angel Oak Tree, an oak tree that has been aged to be greater than 400-500 years old (shown in the pictures below). We also visited Downtown Charleston where we went on a Horse drawn city tour and visited Old Market City. We really enjoyed the city tour with the horse-drawn carriage and the knowledgeable guide. I would recommend Old South Carriage Co. for the tours around Charleston.

  • Here’s a sneak peek of one of the sewing projects I finished yesterday. I have 2 fabric give aways later this week, sponsored by Jumping Birds…come back Friday. These are perfect for going back to school projects.

    Don’t you love Old Charleston. I can’t remember how many wedding couples and senior pictures I’ve seen photographed by that tree. Sneaky people getting around the crowds and such to do it. Hope your 4 hours a day has been productive and that the weather holds out for the rest of the week.

    The triple zip looks adorable! Love those tiny little apples!

    What an interesting/beautiful tree. I can see why the commenter above mentioned a lot of people getting wedding photos taken there, it looks perfect for something like that, just dramatically beautiful.

      Thank you, the fabric is wonderful and from a independent designer which makes it even more fun, some up for grabs later this week.

      Charleston has the best oak trees and spanish moss….wonderfully dramatic.
