Road trip

We made a roadtrip up to New Hamshire to visit my sister (and to escape the heat!) Her new house is beautiful and sooo quiet.

I visited Keepsake Quilting and was careful to only buy what will fit in a small box that I am mailing to myself! If you ever go up there check out Hart's Turky Farm down the road. The turkey sandwich was better than homemade! Also Moulton's Farm stand has incrediable raspberry rubarb sugarless jam and amazing blueberry pies. We had to block the chocolate and pumpkin whoopie pies from my Mom's view or her sugar levels would have hit new highs!

Last saturday I went to an antique show in New London. It was great. Within the first few minutes I spoted a bundle of old fabric...photos to follow. It was even better when I had a chance to unwrap it! Some old turkey reds, indigos double pinks and even a few chinzes! I was on cloud nine!

Today I spent most of my internet time checking out possiable flats or houses to rent in England. It is tough not knowing the areas but the photos help me get ready to hit the ground running when we get there in only two weeks!!!

Wow, living in England. What an adventure that would be.

I imaigne it's hard to keep the limits when you have to think about where it's going to go for the time being!

Did you get the old fabric?

Siobhan - I can't promise to be a total expert on Cheltenham but if you email road names or districts of any you feel really keen on to me I can ask my friend with insider knowledge of the town to let you know which areas to go for and which to avoid :o)

Ooh! Can't wait to see your purchases, Sio!

Sounds like you had a great time in NH. Your family is sure to miss you!

A friend was just raving to me about the Turkey Farm and what fabulous food they have. Small world.

Two weeks!!!? Aiyee, that's coming up surprisingly fast. Fingers crossed, it all goes smooth.

Wow! Two weeks. I'm crying about my simple move to another state and here you are in transit for so long, moving to another country, and not even having a new place rented yet. Good luck.
