Weekend Finds

Last weekend I went to help my friend's daughter move into college.
I posted about that.
That was Friday during the day.
Friday evening we ate at Shady Maple Smorgasbord in Blue Ball, Pa.
It is a euphoric experience.
If you ever have the chance to go there you will not regret it.
I get up about 4 times a year and waddle for days but it is soooo gooodddd.
After we went to the dry goods store nearby and I shopped a little ;]
It originally catered to the local Amish and Mennonite population but as happens we 'English' screwed that up and it is becoming more touristy.
But the fabric and craft section hasn't !
Oh the choices and affordability.
The lady I was with liked her daughters quilt and now wants one for herself.
I had her show me the colors she liked then they dsappeared and I dove into nirvana.
On Saturday we antiqued and junk saled through part of Lancaster county in PA.
They found items for their Christmas gift list and their kids.
I restrained myself nicely I think.
All together I found...

The pattern were 25 cents each and are right up LN's style alley and her size to boot.

Hopefully the darker reds on top left test out as wool crepe like they feel.
The 2 rodeo print in bottom left will make nice kids quilts maybe.
The bear print will work with other hunting types I already have.
The 2 mauves are for my friend.
The blue dots I love as well as the red/white and blue print .
LN loves the green/blue print.
All and all a fun time was had and not a lot spent so no guilt to bear.
LN started back to school and the nightmare of returning to the gym began.
I'm sore after the last few days but it is good for me I'm told.


  1. I dreamed of fabric shopping last night . . . which is strange (or maybe not) because I've been so good about using only what I have in my copious stash and haven't bought but a little bitty bit of fabric in ever so long. 25¢ for patterns! What a deal! You and LN are all ready for some winter sewing fun.

    1. I love sewing I just wish I had more time to do it!
