Sometimes I think we should write a book.... My girlfriend Dawn and I have had some pretty funny experiences and unique quilting adventures over the years. Since we no longer live close to each other we don't get to see each other nearly as much as we would like to.. so it takes some planning when we do get together. We decided to meet at a quilt shop about half way between our homes yesterday. We met at Ladyfingers Sewing Studio in Oley, PA owned by Gail Kessler. Gail is a designer for Andover fabrics. It is a beautiful shop (sorry I didn't take any photos) housed in a historic brick building which was a hotel and stagecoach stop in the 1800's. Lots of character and lots great fabrics. When we went upstairs to the second floor (and the sale fabrics!) we found Gail at her computer... and a brood of young chickens in a large refrigerator box on the floor. Not something you find in your typical quilt shop!! This group of young chicks were just about ready to fly to coop... or the upstairs classroom in this case!
After our shopping excursion, we decided to find a place for lunch. We happened to find a roadside diner, The Creekside Diner, and with not a lot of choices in the area, we decided to go in try it. When we walked into the modest one story building... this is what we saw.
