Join me and my girls for another tour.
(I enjoy making little dolls. )
Check out the "Brooklyn" gum that my daughter
found and gave to me from New York! Cool
This time we are going to Lancaster City! yeah!
Last week, me and my quilting buddies Lee and Kathi
took a trip to the
Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum.
A view of the city from the second floor.
I have a thing for church steeples.
This building was formally a bank that
was owned by The Lancaster Trust
Company. After looking at the Espirit
Collection and the Navajo Weaving Exhibition (just gorgeous!).....
I was studying the architecture of the building.
I just loved the domed ceiling and that beautiful window!
You can view the quilt collection HERE
Click on panoramic video
You might have to download the Plugin and restart
your computer. It's worth it! And you won't be disappointed.
You can also view "Christmas through the Decades"
After viewing the quilts we had a delicious lunch of
grilled cheese and soup at the
Treats Creamery & Cafe. What a fun day!
On our way out of the city ..............
Marriott Lancaster at Penn Square the former Watt & Shand Building
This is the building where the new Quilt
Show will be in March! The Lancaster show for the last 22 yrs. has been in the Lancaster Host Resort but now will be at the Marriot in Lancaster City, March 24-27 2010 at the Lancaster County Convention Center.
Rita Barber the producer of the Quilter's Heritage Celebration is retiring. Rita has put on some great shows and we will miss her!
Our new Producers will be the
American Quilter's Society.
We have a local Quilt Artist in the area -
Sue does just fabulous art quilts and has made
several of the Watt & Shand building - please
visit her blog to see her work- it's absolutely amazing!
On the way home I took this photo of
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church
I love the structure of this old church and the steeple!
If you love stained glass windows as much as I do;
check out the above web site and click on
"Windows of Grace".
Look who is sitting out side my front window. I love to
see Cardinals when it's snowing. Their red color
against the white snow is so striking. (all the snow we
had melted - yeah! It's pretty to look at but not to
shovel it. It was freezing cold out today and windy
I'm not a winter person ~~~ Is it spring yet?)
Making Journal Covers for Christmas presents.
They are in various stages - I better hurry up and finish them!
