Fun Fun Girls’ Weekend


What does a quilt blogger do when she’s in the mood for a getaway weekend?  Why make plans to spend the weekend with another quilt blogger of course.  I had the pleasure of spending my weekend with Di, of QuiltingisBlissful.  Di and I met last year when Mr. QD and I vacationed in the beautiful Finger Lakes area, and I spent part of a day with Di.IMG_2851












Di made the plan for Saturday, and we started out at The Windmill.  We found a little of everything at the Windmill – crafts, clothing, kitchen wares, plants, and food.  We each did our part to stimulate the economy.

Next up was a visit to two Quilt shops in the Amish surroundings.  At the first shop, I purchased a small amount of fabric for a couple of specific projects.

At the next shop, there was only a small amount of fabric for sale, but plenty of beautiful quilts to admire and drool over.

Before dinner, we made another quick trip to one last quilt shop, where I bought fabric for a Christmas gift that I have in mind.  The colors aren’t really this dark, but it’s late at night, and I can’t get a decent picture.








Dinner was a yummy seafood dinner at a restaurant right on the lake.  We then went back to her house for some stitching and gabbing.  Di has been working on cleaning, rearranging, and decorating, and her apartment is so adorable!  We have very similar tastes, and I would love to have her decorate for me.

Sunday morning, after sitting around gabbing for awhile, found us out sightseeing.  We found three beautiful waterfalls without driving very far.


And we both love flowers!





Sadly, I had to return to reality all too soon.  Stitching pictures to follow soon.
