Friends Well Met

Dear Friends,
It was a beautiful day today in Pennsylvania. This morning was a fairly leisurely one. After picking up our friend Louise we headed into Quakertown to find an Art-o-mat machine that was listed on the company's website. Unfortunately it had been removed. So it was off for a quick tour around the farmer's market.



In our travels we also drove past this notification...



I didn't see any chickens...
Then it was on to the Schwenkfelder. Our afternoon was spent catching up with friends, a little shopping, a couple of wonderful lectures on samplers and early needlework pattern books, church lady lunch...



Shoo-fly pie. When in PA....
After finishing up there we went and had a quiet dinner in Quakertown. The building the restaurant was in has been a tavern forever.



then back to the hotel to rest and prepare for another full day tomorrow.
There may be a few more stitches in this tonight.



Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend!

Oh, it looks like you're having a great trip so far, Chris. I will never forget my first experience with Shoo-fly Pie! I was about six or seven and had been invited to a friend's house for dinner. When dessert time rolled around, my friend's German grandmother brought out some Shoo-fly Pie. I had never heard of such a thing and just couldn't bring myself to even take a single bite of something I imagined was made of flies :) Actually, I'm not sure I've ever tried it!!

Susan said...

Sounds like you're having a great time.

Catherine said...

Glad you are enjoying your time!! I had to laugh at Carol's comment, as I thought something similar when little ~ who would want to eat a pie made of "shoes" and flies!?! But once I found out what it really was, yummy!!!

Lovely stitching.

Anne said...

Lol! Love that chickens crossing sign! I wonder if it inspired the joke "chicken crossing a road"?! Great photos and lovely new stitching start!

You sure do get to do a lot of fun-sounding things :)

I'm liking your yellow rose, so far, too.

I've lived in PA all my life and never had shoo-fly pie! Once again, you've got one up on me.
