Little sister and I did our Sunday visiting to day---seen these lovely lilies on the way--
and they are actually a deeper color--usually my camera gets the color right--but I know they were much darker red than they look here!!!!
this pot was in front of a business on main street and I thought the leaves looked huge!!!! (but in this picture they look small?????!!!!!!)
At the corner now--
Oh Boy--there is the sign to our two "favorite" shops on this street---( note see all those cars coming into town--this is at the main four corners here in Watkins Glen!!!!
First stop--the Quilt shop---
And on the work table in the classroom we seen this--
Is this not beautiful or what---the strips with the light colored background are somehow done in 3-D---I hope this is to be a class---I will take it for sure!!!!!

Then up the street to the Antique shop--
this place is called "Pigtail Alley" cause that is the name of their place in Bath, NY area!!!!  This is where I have gotten all my "new" furniture from--now they think we should stop by every week and see them and say "Hi' and that is OK with us--cause then we get to check out all the new stuff they bring in each week--and yes I am looking at one or two things!!!!!!

then we had pizza for lunch--
then went to our other favorite shop--the Country shop---I was looking for a couple more things there for accents ( doesn't that sound better than saying "nick nacks"??)
for some of my new decorating--couldn't get anything today---have to wait til the first of the month!!!!!!!!!!!!


And this is all I brought home with me today---
Two sale patterns and a spool of thread!!!!  the top pattern I got thinking it would work for the "I Spy" exchange I was in last year--but this one calls for a layer cake size---but I think I can still use the idea with my smaller blocks?????  The other pattern Little sister and I are looking at for our "bird" quilts---NO we haven't forgotten them--just been busy with other things--but maybe now that we got the pattern we can get them going?????

Only stitching I did was on "Brutus" and of course he insisted I stitch him in first--then the blanket under him--now he has me stitching in his chair---the flowers are last---
Seen these "beauties" on the way home---and this time the color came out good!!!

Well that was our little adventure for today--tomorrow it is back to work day---but I haven't decided on which project yet--probably the binding on State Fair and maybe work on Kelly's quilt along challenge???????
What are you going to work on????????
Hugs, Di


  1. I can see why they are your favorite shops....

  2. seems like you had a great weekend. I love your little stitchery. As always I am working on 10 things at once...wish I had te 10 arms to go with it all :)

  3. You have too much fun. I'm going to have to come visity sometime. And thanks for the daily Kitty fix!

  4. Oh I wish I lived near by so I could go out shopping and lunching with you and Little Sis.What fun.

    Oh you are so good getting your "Brutus" stitchery done I still have not finished three. Join to many things.

  5. Love the signs. They should add "danger ahead"--guard your wallet!!! Sounds like a fun day. I only did the antique shops today. That was fun too. L,A-

  6. Brutus looks so comfy! I haven't got round to starting on mine.
    Looks like you and little Sister had a nice day - would love to have joined you.

  7. What a fun day! Wish I could have been with you and Lil Sis!!
    Cute Brutus...I just print them out no idea when I will do them.
    Have a big stitching project I am getting ready to begin!

  8. You certainly have an eye what bloggers love to see and read;great blog!! What a lovely weekend you must have had,might even have joined you,if you just asked us :0) Wish I was as relaxed as Brutus seems. Happy Quilting to you!

  9. The last flower picture came out spectacular!! The flower looks 3D. Love it!

    One of the things I love about smaller towns is the ability to walk around town on Sundays. I loved doing that when we were in Upstate NY. It's very peaceful and calming.

  10. What a wonderful day you and your sis had. Those flowers are just gorgeous and so are the quilts. Glad you had a day together. It's hot and humid here & Granddaughter is keeping me busy. We've been working in the cabin trying to get things picked up an looking better so we can play in there again. How do things get so out of whack sometimes?

  11. Forgot to tell you that kitty stitchery is divine. He looks so comfortable there.

  12. Those shops look so wonderful! I would get into trouble there!


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
