Not much time to post tonight, but I wanted to post my results from FNWF. I stayed up extremely late Friday night, finishing 2 doll quilts.
I had planned to make one more doll quilt, but then I got inspired on Saturday, so there will probably be two more.
On Saturday, we were planning to go to southern Maryland for kayaking, and to meet up with a fellow blogger. However, Mother Nature decided that was not a good plan, so DH and I went to Lancaster County, PA instead. If you’re not familiar with Lancaster County, it is the home of a large Amish population. Our purpose in going was to visit the downtown Farmer’s Market for lunch, pasta, produce, and bread. We then went to three quilt shops to pick up Row by Row patterns. These FREE patterns are getting to be expensive! I don’t know about you, but if I go into a store to get something free, I feel the need to purchase something. I need to get over that. Anyway, I came home with 3 ‘free’ patterns, the kit for one of them, and some small amounts of fabric, a pattern, and a new thimble.
Some of the sights in Lancaster County include two little Amish boys, and they’re wearing Crocs! I know this is a bad picture, but I deliberately cropped out the father because his face was showing.
We saw a lot of mules, and either ponies or miniature horses. I’m not sure what they’re used for. Perhaps the mules are used in the fields?
It’s not often that we see tobacco growing around here!
Horse and buggies are very common. Although I actually see them every day in the town where I work.
This quilt was actually hanging outside one of the quilt shops. I want to go back up there sometime soon with another quilter. I would have liked to visit many of the shops, and even roadside stands. DH was a good sport about going, but he sure doesn’t like to poke around in all the shops. We drove by one farm that advertised quilts, and he just kept on driving. No quilter would have considered such behavior!!
I must go now to read your blogs and send some emails. Hope everyone is having a great week.
