Wednesday was the day that I finally made a trip out to Hereford, PA to meet up with Joanne at the Cinnamon Stick! I've been following Judy's blog for some time now and it was always fun to read what's going on there and see what goodies are being stocked in her shop... but to talk with Judy in person and actually be in the shop? So much better! If there is anybody that's been thinking about making a trip out there... hesitate no longer! You will have so much FUN!
Here's a quick picture of a couple of the goodies that had to come home with me...
I've always wanted one of these old wooden carriers. And, this one was in fantastic condition with just the right amount of worn paint on it. I'm still making what I will display in it, so look for some more pics of it in the near future. The other thing that caught my eye was an old wooden drawer! Was it the glass knob? Who knows... but I brought it home with me and now it is being used as my napkin holder on my dining room table! LOL! And, last but not least, is a little pumpkin make-do! A gal can never have too many pumpkins! :-)
Oh! And right next door to the Cinnamon Stick is a store called Homespun! This store is filled wall to wall with hand dyed woolens, quilting cottons, homespun, prairie cloth, weaver's cloth... *insert deep breath here*... rug hooking patterns, needle punch patterns, books and completed wooly projects... eye candy! I wanted to take it all home with me! :-)
The next great day of last week was Friday. Our local rug hooking guild had a regular meeting. The whole reason why I wanted to go was because everyone was to bring their rug projects from the summer. There were so very many gorgeous rugs!!!! And I was kicking myself for not bringing my camera... I can give you the link to the guild's website... hcrag.com I'm not sure if they will be posting pictures of the rugs that were at the meeting... but, there are plenty of rugs to look at there!
I did also get in some hooking and stitching time. Though, did not really get far enough to post pictures of an update. Hopefully next week will bring a good progress report on the rug at least!
For everyone that is in the area of Kutztown, PA and enjoys antique radios... this coming weekend is a super great radio show on the grounds of Renninger's. Finished radios, project radios, parts and tubes galore!!!! This event is also along with the regulars in the Renninger's Antique Mall and Farmer's Market. That way, when you finish with the radios, you can buy some antiques, fresh meats and produce, and some fall mums, corn stalks and pumpkins too! So, fill the tank on your biggest vehicle and drive out for a fun day! :-)
I'll be talkin' with ya' soon! Have a great week!
