Our trip north almost didn't begin. Car was packed, house was locked, and car wouldn't start! Went in to call AAA, and our phone had been put on seasonal hold already! Got out our emergency cell phone and called AAA and got a boost to start the car, then headed to Walmart to get a new battery. We got on the road by noon instead of 8am! We decided to cancel our first night's hotel reservation, and our stop in Athens GA at the botanical garden - that will have to wait for fall. Managed to get to Orangeburg SC in time for bed!
Day two - the car was hard to start. Luckily, there was a Chev dealer about a mile from our motel. They found out that the new battery had a dead cell, and gave us directions to the nearest Walmart. We were back on the road in about 2 hours. The rest of the trip was fairly uneventful. We enjoyed the redbud trees and dogwoods in bloom along the way, and reached Winchester VA. Thank heavens for no more car problems the rest of the way!
Day three - we continued on the interstate until shortly after we reached Pennsylvania. We meandered along Hwy 30, and our first stop was at the Sew n Place in Fayetteville PA. I found some Hallowe'en fabric marked down, so picked up some for my grandkids future quilts. + 4 yards!
Then we meandered to Zook's Fabrics in Intercourse PA - I had an email saying that they had fat quarters on sale for 99 cents!
More Hallowe'en and neutral fat quarters.
+ 4.75 yards!
It started to rain, so we headed to our hotel in Lancaster. The rain had stopped by the time we headed out for our evening of dinner theatre. We had a lovely dinner, and were entertained with a performance of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat! The cast was great, and we really enjoyed the childrens chorus! DH booked a package at the Heritage Hotel, that included a full breakfast in the morning too! We are hoping to stop on our way south in the fall.
Day Four we headed out to Denver PA to visit Burkholders Fabrics. We enjoyed driving through the country, looking at all the lush green farms along the way. The forsythia and daffodils were adding their colour to the scenery too! I managed to choose 6 more yards of fabric to add to my collection! I love the diagonal stripe - it will make great binding! From there we headed north and finally got back on I-81. We made a quick stop in Watertown NY, and then headed home, with a stop and welcome home at the Canadian border. We were home in time to unload the van, and enjoyed a quick dinner before heading to bed.
