Shopping in Lancaster

I have returned from a much needed R&R with my DH. It was our anniversary so we ditched the kids and ran for Lancaster. Yep!! Lancaster Pa. DH and I have been going there since before we were married. We are never at a loss for things to do there.

Of course a trip to Lancaster wouldn't be complete without shopping. Fabric shopping that is. I love to shop there because their prices are at least $3.00 a yard cheaper than other shops.( I do frequent the local shops as well but what DH doesn't know won't hurt him.)

So be prepared this is a photo intensive fabric post. I am working on a Civil War reproduction quilt so it MUST be scrappy. So here goes...................

I have so much trouble with backgrounds for reproductions. These are called "shirt prints" and will work great. I always buy these up whenever I find them.

Always a need for creams

Patriotics.......great for placemats and napkins for our July Civil War dinner

Greens,browns,reds and purples..notice the "cheddar"????

Starting a collection of blues for an all blue and white quilt.

And lastly a shamrock piece for a new smock top and placemats for next St Patty's day.

So I'd better get off the computer for now and get this stuff put away.

Really disappointed that I found no wool anywhere though.

Had a wonderful time away but unfortunately it's back to reality.

Dishes meals kids......................

Happy Monday.
