Awesome little Getaway!

  I have been busy with working my two jobs, not much time for crafting or anything right now.
I was able to go on a quick trip with two of my sisters and my best friend to Lancaster, Pa. for
a day trip.
We just spent one night, but we sure didn't let any grass get green under our feet. We did a little
shopping, ate some wonderful comfort food, and did alot of laughing. It was therapy for all of us.
 We also went to see a wonderful play  "Half Stitched", based on the book by Wanda E. Brunstetter.
It was a comedy about all of these different people from many different walks of life taking a quilting class,
I laughed and I cried, it was a wonderful play. Now I have to read the book. I recommend the play highly!
I will share a few pictures. I didn't get any photo's of the amish, sorry.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
