Peddler's Village, Lahaska, PA

A recent visit to Peddler's Village in Bucks County, PA (town of Lahaska, near the Bucks County SPCA) showed that it was too early in the season for much to be in bloom, but photos are always taken, so I will share them, as well as some photos of the quilt exhibit that was going on (although the quilts are in the gazebo and it is too hot in there to be good for them).  The quilts were judged in various categories such as Traditional, Amish, Applique, Potluck, and there were categories for children's submissions also.  The gazebo is small and there was a railing to keep people from getting close to the quilts, so the photos are not the best but I love the inspiration anyway.   One of the best quilt shows I ever attended was the one in the boathouse in Belfast, ME.

Beautiful photos! We still have a few feet of snow to melt down before any chance of crocuses. I just love them though!

You know, I just cannot look at a nine patch quilt without drooling! What IS it about that pattern! So simple, but so SUPER. xxoo Patty

Nancy said...

Patty, I agree completely. If I could have only one block to make, it would be a nine patch!

Hi Nancy,

Could you get in touch with me about the Tilda doll please? I have emailed to both of your email addresses recently, but no reply so far, but I know you sometimes have problems with your email addresses. It's just from what you said in your last email to me in May, I had expected to have received the fabric by now. I've made the doll - I just need the fabric to make her dress.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Julia

Hi Nancy....can you please make contact regarding the FRIENDS swap you have put your name down for please. Thanks Khris

Khris said...

Nancy I have had to remove you from the FRIENDS swap as I have had no contact to the many emails I have sent you. I have let your partner know and she has decided to sit aside for the swap as she has had no response either. I am not sure if you are unwell or what but if you are I hope things are better for you.
Hugs Khris

Hi Nancy, thanks for stopping by my blog to help me out about the cranberries. I will take your advice. I appreciate it. I just read through your blog and wonder if you are still posting. Interestingly enough - I had to quit working due to severe fibro too. I'm much better since I can now take better care of myself. Good to meet you!

Hi Nancy! Thanks for commenting on my blog. Cool quilts! My boyf's mom is 88 and has been quilting all her life. She's won several awards through the years. :)

The crocus photos are lovely, and I love the bridge over the stream too.

I do love Crocuses! They always bring cheer!

The quilts are all amazing. It is hard to pick a favorite. I do enjoy quilt shows! I saw one in England that was held in a Norman church, it was quite the experience!
Hugs,
Terri
