Welcome to my blog. This is not my cat, nor is it my quilt. But I couldn't figure out how to remove them and I liked the blog theme and layout, so, there you are!
A visit to Shipshewana, Indiana
My husband and I paid a visit to Shipshewana recently. We had never been there before, but quilters speak of it fondly. There is Lolly's - a lovely quilt shop and Yoder's Dept. Store and Amish buggies going to and fro on the roads. It is a pretty little place. At Lolly's, I bought a small ruler and a spool of thread. Antique fabrics have been my focus for a long time, so I passed up all the wonderful reproduction fabrics at the quilt store. I did find the stack of authentic 1930's fabrics, though not all at the same antique store. The piece of black draped over the cabinet is actually a black skirt that the tag said was "very old" - whatever that means. It is almost certainly Amish. We also went to an Amish bulk store. Their cheeses were delicious, by the way. It was a wonderful weekend trip and I highly recommend exploring that area if the opportunity ever presents itself to you.
Until next time..........
