Three Quilts Came Home with Us...

Elsewhere (the Motorhome) didn't get much rest!  We just got home from a few days in the beautiful Shenandoah Mountains of Virginia.  One of the most beautiful areas of our country - and the Mennonite people are so very nice.  But...we may have to put a stop to going to their annual sale since we can't resist buying beautiful quilts!!!  Only three came home with us - we justify this extravagance by knowing that all the quilts, furniture and other items are made and donated by the Mennonite people and all proceeds go to charities.

Making Ice Cream by riding a bicycle

If you ever get a chance - you should go to one of these events - delicious food, all kinds of beautiful handmade things...and some great music.  Apple Butter, Pies, Cakes, Ice Cream. They churn the ice cream by riding a bicycle hooked up to the ice cream maker!

There are numerous sales all over the US and some in Canada.

We spent some time in Harrisonburg - beautiful town - home of James Madison University, Eastern Mennonite University --- and the Virginia Quilt Museum.  Yep we did go to the Quilt Museum - how in the world did they make those wonderful quilts back then without all our nice tools?  Guess it took a long time.

Ken went to the tractor pull Saturday night since it was conveniently located at the same location as the Auction Sale - and we were enjoying one of their campsites - even had wi-fi.

Apple Fest at some small town on the way home - bought several varieties - some I have not seen before.  I only took a short nap - accidentally fell asleep while reading on the sofa - what a way to travel!
