The fruits (and veggies) of our labors

Veggies  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:

Christmas  Some Christmas fabric — of course,


Fall and Halloween   Fall and Halloween fabric,  and


some cute Fat Quarters and Charm Packs   Charm Pack and Fat Quarters

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: 013   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.
