Back Again

Back again to finish off my last post.

On our way to Bennington we took the back road and crossed through this lovely red covered bridge. It the one Diana Keaton drives through in the film Baby Boom when shes on her way to her new life in Vermont. I love that film especially when she is dancing to Moonlight in Vermont. Oh I'm such an old romantic !!!
 So here we are at the Bennington Museum and after visiting VT 5 times I've finally timed it right  and at last I get to meet  Jane. She really is a work of art and in fabulous condition.

Very dark in the museum where she is displayed which is fair enough given her age and them wanting to protect her. 
Their was this other beauty in there too but the only information was that it was gifted. 
We saw so many pumpkins along the way and couldn't resist  having my photo done with this guy. 
Its time to say goodbye to The Inn at Manchester. We stayed in the red barn building at the back overlooking the pool. I love staying at this Inn. 

Heading back to Boston we passed this fab bridge in New Hampshire and pure by chance passed a quilt shop. After screeching to a halt my friend indulged me once again as we headed into Pickering Farm Quilt shop. Lots of nice treasure's in their for me too and I'm am holding on to my last precious purchases

We then headed for Concord for our last afternoon and payed a visit to Orchard House . Such a shame no photo's are allowed as their are a few small quilts in the bedrooms. 

So now it was finally time to say goodbye to New England once again.

As for 2016 I am going to try to do at least one post a month, I  find I spend most of my time hanging out on Facebook and Instagram these days, Its so quick and easy. 

Its  now time to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a marvellous 2016. 

Happy Stitching

  10. Hi Sue
    Looks like you had a very enjoyable and rewarding trip. Thanks for sharing.
    I was also wondering if you have an update on any progress for the pattern for the Jane Pizar quilt? I am very keen to make this quilt and hesitant to take on another major work if the pattern will be released in the near future.

  11. I'm your newest follower, number 248. I happened upon your blog while hopping through bloglists of other bloggers. Not a quilter, but find the quilting world very interesting. So glad I landed here and am able to travel with you a little.
