My friend in Amish Country

IMG_8874

Isn’t he cute?  Or she.  A little thick around the middle wouldn’t you say?  We had a nice trip through Amish Country.  Its refreshing and beautiful, and I’m pretty convinced I could fit right in.  Except I’d like a washer and dryer, and a hot water heater, and a microwave.   I bought some cute fabric, mostly restocking favorites I’d used up, but I forgot to take a pic so that will come later. 

   I jumped on the band-wagon late, but I’ve decided to join Amanda Jean’s 9 patch quilt along.

And of course another project, because I wouldn’t feel complete without multiple unfinished projects in the sewing space.

I love the blue and green strips. I can't wait to see what you make with them. The nine-patch quilt along sounds like fun.

I have been following your blog for a while and realized at some point that we are from the same state. I had to laugh when I saw the picture of your new friend. I agree with the previous post that she might be with child. I have lived about four miles from Charm for a couple of years now and Miller's is my all time favorite fabric store. I live in a predominately Amish neighborhood but I am 'English' with my washer and dryer, microwave, broadband INTERNET,and satelite TV. The neighbors are delightful. I am slowly getting used to not having a Target handy! Love your blog!
