Whew!! What a Trip!
We arrived home from our trip to NYC last night. I was a lot of fun! Our first big stop on the way there was at the Field Museum in Chicago. We were lucky enough to hit a free day. That is a wonderful museum. (I can't seem to make this thing stop underlining). We spent several hours there before continuing on our way.
This was taken in Hershey, PA where they make Hershey chocolate bars. The street names are all chocolate and we loved the street lights that look like candy kisses. From there we went to Intercourse PA which is in the middle of Amish country. They have a wonderful quilt museum there. The one pictured below is absolutely flat, believe it or not.
This one really struck me for it's bright colors and exquisite workmanship.
Of course, I bought some fabric there which I'll show later. We stayed there over night and the next day stopped in Lancaster for another quilt museum, this time traditional Amish quilts. I'll show more pictures later when I get them organized a bit better.
After Lancaster we went on to just outside NYC where we stayed the night so we could arrive early and hopefully, not have as much traffic.
I'll post about the rest of the trip later. Right now I have a huge mound of laundry waiting and some new fabric to photograph and fondle.
