Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

A trip to the Pig Patch..............

Today Edna and I went down state, the Hillman area I think, to the Pig Patch. One of our favourite places to shop for quilting materials. I picked up a couple of sale items that will back a couple of quilts later. I took samples of some that I am going to be working on that needed something extra. Well the something extra came to 185 dollars. I said I was not going to do this any more. I just cant help it I guess. Well anyway..............First off we went to see Barb to drop off some quilts I had already finished. She will quilt them on her long arm machine. She now has two of them. She has been doing this almost since we left the bank. Anyway, she has 5 of mine to do now. I need to get a few more done as Christmas gifts.

I love the Pig Patch because she not only has good stuff but the shop is in the farm house. Its beautiful. Did I say she has nice stuff? I bought a pattern for a purse that I don't have and I know Laura will like the pattern. I found fabric to put with material for a lap quilt for her and one to go with what I have for one for Jason. Well I did get a few extra pieces too but whose counting.
After that we stopped at the big farm market we like, it also has baked goods.

sorry thats blurry. Thats Edna checking out. I did some damage in the bakery department and got a few fresh veggies that looked good too.
Next we stopped at the Amish store. Their flowers were still blooming. They sell bulk foods and have good prices so I got some crystalized ginger (Yummy) and some nuts and raisin mixes for Tristens snacks among other things. I did find some Apple Cider Vinegar capsules. Gonna try those so I wont choke on the vinegar when I try to take it. Its good for ya.

We stopped for lunch at Mancinos and I had a Reuben sandwiche that was awesome. Barb showed us some pot scrubbers she made, kitchen thingies made from scrubby yarn.
