Sewing again and vacation pics

Between cooking most of the day yesterday I managed to get some hsts cut and sewn together for the depression block quilts.....I have 50 trimmed in the baggie and a little more than 100 more to trim VBG....so if I do it in small spurts I should be able to finish the red ones tomorrow and tonight after the BBQ then onto the next color- I have green and orange ready to go Yippee!!!!




Here are a few pics from Eastern State - It's the oldest jail in the country that was closed in the late 80's. When the jail was closed ther were a bunch of ferral cats that took over the place. The ghost cats is an artist's diplay of them through out the jail.
When the jail first opened in the time of Ben Franklin each cell had one person in it- meaning everyone was in solitary confinment...creepy. Later as many as 4 people were in each cell originally built for one person. The have a great Haunted House type thing in October called Terror Behind the Walls- if you're in the Philley area at that time I HIGHLY recommend it. We may go back for it again this year- not decided yet. One never knows with my 2 teens......
