KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!
Tuesday, July 5, 2011
My husband and I ventured out to the Kutztown Folk Festival on Sunday. We had not been there in about 30 years so I forgot what it was all about. There is Pennsylvania Dutch food (mostly very fattening), crafts, quilts and folk dancing to name a few things.
Here is a picture inside the qult barn. I have to say I only liked a few quilts. They were very traditional and I think a lot of them were made with polyester fabric and polyesters batting...a little too puffy for my taste.
This was one of the nicer ones. They were all for sale and I thought the prices seemed pretty reasonable and reflected the time put into them.
All those little black and white checks are pieced!
There were a lot of quilt inspired things to see...a hex sign.
A glass blower making glass items...
I loved this kid ride, made out of old barrels. On the side it says Nasbar, Pennsylvania Dutch for Nascar?
Vegetarians, you may want to skip this picture!
Everything is written in PA Dutch with English on the side. This was for Ox Roasted sandwiches.
Some projects got done as well this weekend. This is my porch furniture ready to be painted.
Isn't it great to have kids who can do useful things for you? This is my son Dylan, who is painting this for my mother's day gift. They gray is the primer, I am painting it black.
