Yesterday I went to “Amish Country” (as we call it) in Mid-Missouri with my Mom, Aunt, and a friend of the family. It was a hot day – whew I don’t how those Amish do it. Bravo to them. We picked up a quilt that had been dropped off awhile back that was gorgeous, wish I’d taken a picture to share…but I felt a little awkward pulling out my “fancy” phone in front of the Amish. Weird? Yes. We also dropped off my quilt from a few years ago to have them quilt it.
A few years back (okay, maybe 7) my family did a family quilting project. There were 12 of us total who wanted to take part, so we each started by making 2 squares for our own quilt. We then passed them along to the next person on the list who made 2 more, and on and on. In the end we each ended up with an entire quilt with 2 squares made by each different member of the family. We all also initialed our squares, so it’s pretty cool. One of my aunts even used a piece of my Granddaddy’s shirt that he always wore on Christmas, to my quilt. It’ll be awhile before I get it back, but I’ll have to share it when I do. It’s a bright one!
I gotta hand it to them, they’ve got a sense of humor!
I also bought this cute bracelet for $2. I’m not big into wearing “jewelry,” but it was too cute to pass up!
Well, tomorrow’s a big day of working on my 10-15 page paper – but I’ll have a new recipe that’s sure to cool you off soon 🙂
