Vacation at last

I had a few days of vacation that I needed to use before the end of the year. I decided this was a great week to take them. I got to go to a new quilt shop yesterday and a Harley shop with DH. What a beautiful day it was. The weather was just perfect for a drive. First stop was a store about one hour from us called Surplus City. It is just the neatest place. One half of it is mens stuff, tools, hardware, paint, stuff like that. The other half is fabric, crafts, decorative items. I got several yards of fabric, some rick rack and also some yardage of laces. Then it was on to the quilt shop I had seen advertised on Quilting Arts tv show on PBS. It was a cute shop with lots of goodies squeezed into a small shop. I bought some great batiks, and a new pattern. I also bought some more beading needles. Then we went to the State College Harley shop, OMG, if you ever are in that area, stop in and see that shop. It is huge and very nicely laid out. The people there were very nice too. I found a coat that I loved and told him to get me one for Christmas. There was only one there and in my size. He said if we don`t get it now, it will be gone. So we did!! Maybe tomorrow I will get him to take a picture of me with it on and post it.
Well when we got outside, we almost had a flat tire, there was a guy that worked out there got us and airhose and we pumped up the tire and headed home! It was a great day!
