Eat. Sew. Laugh.
Such talent was present in the room!
Saturday evening seven of us had an interesting experience of attending a turkey dinner at the local firehouse. The meal was so-so, but watching the interactions of the Amish people who were present made the experience well worth the ten dollars we'd paid. I especially enjoyed a table of teen-age girls in their solid color dresses (some pinned and a few with buttons) with white prayer cap strings trailing over their shoulders; they were as giggly and silly as any group of "English" teens.
I didn't take a lot of photographs; I was focused on making my brown and pink baby quilt for friends of Andrew and Amy who are expecting a daughter in February.
I did take a picture of The Farmer's Whatever, however, and then gave her away. The whole time I'd been making this quilt, I knew it was for Turbo, who has made and given away more quilts, I think, that anyone I know. She liked it.
