The towns of Intercourse and Bird in hand Pennsylvania

View a slide show of photos of Intercourse and Bird in Hand Pennsylvania I started out early this morning… guiding the mustang along the freeway and then onto the country roads of Lancaster County. I planned to visit the town of Intercourse…. I had visited there some time ago with a group of Australian Quilters…but…

Harrisburg Pennsylvania

I took a walk around the area I am staying in….. and this is what I found.   A heritage signs says that the houses are Queen Anne style and have been there over looking the river since 1899.

An interesting day…

This is yesterdays post…. but due to the internet having a hissy fit… I can only post it today…The young man in the photo is serving us pie and icecream mentioned further down the post….. There’s a huge thunderstorm raging outside….thunder claps are renting the sky and the rain is coming down in sheets.The TV…

I’m bushed…..

I’m just mentally and physically exhausted after a 15 hr day…..Photos and an explanation tomorrow….

It’s time I ate Vegemite…..

11.00 pm and I can finally jot down a few words….. I’ve got my music on very loud through my earphones….and I’ve been going over my class for tomorrow, and my luncheon presentation….. I always do a little fine tuning and go through my notes and timing for class.  I have 27 students tomorrow so…

I’m in a fish phase….

The only time I have to sketch is on  the plane…. it was a rough landing so I couldn’t finish the tail.The fish is preliminary sketch for friend Dave who took me on that fabulous canoe ride and also to make a pattern for that wonderful fabric I purchased at the Ice House….The other is…

(Sigh) computers.

How can it be….. I’m in a darn chocolate factory and I’m allergic to chocolate…. I ate two of those little Hershey kisses and itched all through the Teachers talk….. This is such a fun place, can you imagine how exciting it is for children…..!!!!!!The hotel is massive….I’m going to dive into my Princess and…

The chocolate capital.

The legs are telling me that I got my daily exercise today…. I figured I walked around 10 miles…. just for fun….so I’m pooped. Lucky I have a spa in my room….Everything is packed for the next journey which is in Pennsylvania…and I leave tomorrow morning… Hershey….. yes, the chocolate capital of the United States…….

Stunning Fabric

This fabric is stunning…. I still can’t work out which  direction it looks best… however, it will be part of my diary quilt to remember my trip on the river yesterday…. It’s a Hoffman fabric….

Duck, Duck, Goose…

Take a look at this wonderful fabric I purchased for Tilly today…. Andover fabrics…. I just love them…. they’re not for a quilt, but for some cute outfits….!!!
