Having a ball!

I'm having a great time with my twin sister here in Lancaster County, PA. This morning before breakfast, I sat on the B & B porch quilting, and saw Amish in their buggies and Mennonite on their bicycles cruise by on their way to Good Friday church service. After breakfast, we hopped in the car and went EVERYWHERE! Obie's Country Store, packed to the rafters with quilts and fabric,

the Goodville Fabric Outlet (Fabric and Outlet in the same title - you KNOW it is good!), Smucker's Quilts (both traditional and contemporary designs), the town of Intercourse with all it's touristy goodness, including the People's Place Quilt Museum

and my favorite quilt in the museum, Plaid Posies,

and finally the town of Lititz, where we found a consignment shop and bought lots of fun clothes.

Here are my quilt-y purchases - yardage of 3 different fabrics, some Jumbo Ric Rac, and a Lisa Boyer book:


I also couldn't resist these horse and buggy socks:


Tomorrow, we're off to Bird In Hand. Better get to bed - my feet are killing me from all the walking we did today.

I am so jealous. What a wonderful trip. I am reading about all the places you have been to in the Beverly Lewis books. The last one I just finished was set in Bird-in-Hand. Have a wonderful time with your sister!

Sounds like a perfect weekend. I want good weather too. And I love your socks! I'm surprised too that the smaller places were open on Good Friday. Our larger stores are open here, although with reduced hours, but our smaller stores close for 3 days. Have fun.

I love that you visited Intercourse....My mom has a shot glass that says, "I heart Intercourse." I went there on my way to Boston years ago and still remember like it was yesterday! So neat you could be with your sis!!!
