Colorful Scenery and Quilt Shops
In Morgantown this morning I found what I overheard a fellow quilter call "heaven". It was Martin's Country Market and the Hayloft Fabrics . Actually, there was a balcony loft all around the perimeter of the market and it had a most bountiful display of fabrics. They do ship fabrics via their website.http://hayloftfabrics.com/ They had a special of 15% off the end of a bolt and I found a number of pieces that will help keep my stash healthy. Then we traveled north west beyond Reinholds on Route 897 to Burkholder's Fabrics. This was another amazing find. I bought something special for my sister-in-law who is watching our dog while we meander the countryside. They had panels like I have never seen before and fabrics of all sorts that were arranged by designer, color, etc. We had a delicious lunch at the Brickerville House, Shoppes, and Family Restaurant and lo and behold, Vince found a yarn shop. "Ball and Skein" I bought a pattern and some yummy yarn to make Magdalyn a sweater and hat. I knitted while Vince drove us north through the long ridges of Southeastern Pennsylvania. I am making some Christmas presents which I will show later. It was a very colorful day what with scenery and fabrics.
