I was sitting outside this evening and looked up at the tree and it looks like the leaves are starting to change color already! I know that this will not make my sister happy at all. I guess fall is really on it’s way and I’d better get moving on my fall items.
I see some apple and pumpkin potholders maybe on my cutting table soon?
But I hope to have a few more trips to the beach
Enjoy the week. The weather looks pretty good even if it isn’t very August-like.
We had a wonderful vacation in Lancaster, PA. When we returned we were able to pick some delicious tomatoes (technically a fruit), zucchini, green beans, a few different kinds of peppers and some strawberries that didn’t make it into the picture because they went straight into my mouth. 🙂 Thanks to my sister for watering our garden while we were away so the plants wouldn’t get parched.
Here are the “fruits of my shopping” while we were there:
Some Christmas fabric — of course,
Fall and Halloween fabric, and
some cute Fat Quarters and Charm Packs
We didn’t just do fabric-y stuff. There were some things on the agenda of interest to hubby too (although he was very helpful in finding specific fabrics I was looking for).
We took a tour of the Martin Guitar Factory :
and we visited President Buchanan’s house: He is the only President from Pennsylvania so far. We both like history – I especially enjoy American History – so this was a great way to spend one of our mornings.
We also went to the Model Train Museum and the National Christmas Museum. We stayed in a very nice B & B (New Beginnings). The Innkeepers, Denise and Al, were wonderful. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. We had great weather and had a real terrific vacation.
So what am I up to now you may ask? Well, I am getting some Fall and Halloween things made with the new fabric I acquired and will be starting on Christmas shortly. I am also working on a few quilts which are in various stages of completion. I will post pictures of the “fruits of my labor” as they are finished. So come back and see what’s new.
Bye for now.
