Fun in my fabric world....

Sunday, October 28, 2012

Yesterday Loz and I decided to investigate Amish country with a driver, as the public transport in the area is very poor and many shops are situated away from main tourist drag. We found a great shop, Hannah's Quilts, after a recommendation from some Dutch quilters. Well, I think Hannah was rubbing her hands together with glee as, after the arrival of two more friends, some Amish quilts were purchased. Beautifully hand quilted with the makers initials, date and place...lovely!


We also investigated Lancaster itself and an old graveyard....amazing to wander around.


Still amazed by squirrels...we saw this little chap!

The area around Lancaster is very beautiful. I hope you're going to be someplace safe and cozy when the storm get here.

What wonderful travels! I've been to Lancaster once, and bought more fabric than should be legally allowed.

If you find yourself near Chicago, stop by. We have lots of squirrels!
