The trip continues. We drove from Skaneateles down to Watkins Glen. We drove past around 25 vineyards. It reminded me of the Traverse City area in Michigan. Also known for producing great wine. We were kind of rushed to make all the stops we wanted to do so we didn't stop at any of the wineries. Bummer, I really want to do that the next time we go!! I took this out the car window as we were speeding along the lake on our way to WG.
I know, why all the fascination with Watkins Glen? There is an amazing state park there and in the parking lot you can see one of the waterfalls at the park. Unfortunately, the park was closed but at least we got to see this one!
In WG was a really nice quilt shop called Oh Susannah's. I managed to find a few things there. Like this amazing reindeer pattern. (both girls love the movie Prancer, so I may have to make 2 of these!) And the Pies and Tarts pattern that I am also in love with!! I found some ivory scales (for a future pond dragon quilt) and 2 clearenced quilt patterns and a bit of something for a Halloween quilt? Who knows! Anyone know where that panel for the 12 days of Christmas is still available??
Then we were on to Montour Falls. I had no idea what we were going there for except that it was amazing. DH was just driving through this historic subdivision and we pulled up (see our car) and there was the most amazing waterfall right in between 2 houses. Can you believe it? You could totally walk out in your back yard and sit down and watch the waterfall. It would be like, "hey want to hang out at my house, I have a waterfall in my back yard" AMAZING!!
Here it is up close!!
As you can see I am still a little bit behind in my posts. I am a little bit behind in my life too so I guess it is all good. I am having withdrawl from not being at the sewing machine for like 2 weeks!! I have to clean up the house, do laundry, grocery shop and clean up the sewing area too. All I really want to do is sew. DD1 and DH are headed to Grand Rapids to move DD's stuff to a storage facility closer to home (and cheaper) thank the sewing gods I don't have to go!! I am hoping for some quality sewing time tomorrow. I want to finish the borders on LTW's second lighhouse quilt and finish my Swanky quilt. I have a plan for the church ladies for the new year too so will keep you posted.
Hope you are all having a great weekend. I am so far behind in my blog reading I fear I will never catch up so if you haven't heard from me it's because I am a little behinder!!
