|We made a short trip to the States|
We wanted to see the family in New York -
granddaughter had her 6th birthday.
But at first we visited the east coast and drove over and through
the Chesapeak Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
SharonB's class of the Studio Journal has great influence on my diary keeping.
I love my unprofessional coloured pages.
Right side: We reached Greenville, NC, and Roanoke
We took the Blue Ridge Parkway to the north
which was wonderful with the new green coming out and blooming trees
Next towns were Staunton (remakable because of its 33 churches),
and Winchester, a lovely little town
where somebody embellished the fence of a small street cafe
We liked to take our coffee at McDo's - senior coffee - at a very good price
We drove through Amish Farmlands and made a stop at Intercourse, PA.
Really everybody in this region dried the laundry on the line -
a very unusual sight in the States.
The Amish do not use electricity or modern devices.
We were in the most wonderful quilt shop: http://www.oldcountrystorefabrics.com/
and 4 yards of batiks are mine!
|I like those motives - but I had no colour to|
paint the pages - later on I bought water soluble wax pastels.
In New York - half of the young family is on the photo
