See what I do is sometimes I cut fat quarters then fold 'em up add the label and put in bins that will go to the quilt shows to be sold---othertimes I dont have to cut them they send them to me at home already cut and I fold them here..but they have fallen behind so I went up and cut about 1400 of these 18 x 21 inch fat quarter's Needless to say I was exhausted!! But they have a nice cutting room with lots of great natural light, carpeted floor, cable tv, and satellite radio--SO what more could I want? Well I'd love to have this quilting machine at my house!!
SO anyways once the work was done I headed out on Saturday Morning (12th of March) to complete another waterfall hike. I had to drive about an 1.15 hrs to get to the location but on the way I had to stop a few times to take photos! Im the Queen of the U-Turn!
The SC National Heritage Corridor runs through this area in the western and upper sections of our state. Highway 11 the Cherokee Scenic Highway combines with the corridor and makes for an excellent drive that stretches from Charleston following the Savannah River to Gafney a Mountain town...Ive driven the entire northern section now Ive got to drive the GA border section. The highway goes through 17 counties of the state and covers 240 miles! BUT on this trip my main reason for heading up to the Sumter National Forest was to hike to Brasstown Falls! We had terrific rains on the Thrusday before (10th of March) so the water was Excellent!
The Brasstown Creek creates these wonderful cascades 4 of them and then a Veil and a Sluice --for over 120 feet of falling water in 5 sections with the upper section standing alone a 40 ft cascade. This is on pages 42-46 of my Waterfall Hikes of SC by Thomas E King an ongoing photography/hiking project for me.
