Other posts on this trip: Legoland Windsor

On the first leg of our UK trip, we were staying outside of London with one set of my in-laws. So we did Legoland, then the next day we went into London. Fish and chips for lunch! Savile Row!

spring break 2016 1

Hannah and I hit the road this week for three nights in Lancaster county. We did this two years ago, and then again that same summer with my mom, and it was great. Last year we were in Las Vegas for spring break, but this year we didn’t have any plans. And H is a little older, we don’t need the stroller. She was much more into it this trip. We did a lot of fabric shopping for Mommy, but we also saw tons of trains and animals for her.

liberty fabric

I’ve been stocking up on Liberty of London fabrics from a secret, cheap source in Manhattan. I’m not ready to share the source yet, because the members of my quilt guild who shared it will take back my crafter card if I spill the beans. The point is that now I have to figure out what to make.

I’ve had a slow start to January with my sewing, but I’m getting there! I bought myself this amazing new t-shirt, and I can’t get enough of it. Read more on January Quiltiness…

geeky sprinkles

Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.

stof dot dress

Stof is a Danish fabric company completely unfamiliar to me until last week. Hannah and I went out to Pennington Quilt Works to spend my birthday coupon, and there were these magnificent dots. Stof’s Twist Style. The shop had more than one colorway, but this is the one Hannah and I both loved (she tried to run off with the bolt). So I bought a yard.

destashing

I’ve been on a monthlong weeding and organizing binge all over the house. My studio especially has gotten a bit of an overhaul, and I’ve pulled a ton of fabric to sell.

cotton + steel

I bought a lot of great fabric this summer after a bit of a dry spell buying new fabrics. I’ve only cut into the Cotton + Steel bundles above, and even then I’ve only used two of the fat quarters. But I can’t wait to play with the rest.

We went back to Lancaster July 1-3, but this time it was three generations of women heading to Kitchen Kettle Village. I do love it there, although after our second stay in the Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village I’m a little grossed out by the infrequently-washed carpets. It was much worse this time, I may have to rethink things for our next visit.

This is what we got ourselves up to.

mommydaughtertrip1

After spending last weekend in DC, Hannah and I dropped Adam off at the train station so he could come back to NYC for work. But I’d decided a couple of months before that it would be really fun for Hannah and me to go away together for a few days during her spring break. A mommy/daughter trip.

So, we (I) decided to drive from Washington to Lancaster county in PA. After a morning running around DC together, we hopped in the car and set off.
