As you all know my sister has been here for the last week. We have had such a wonderful time. We decided since Yoder Heritage Day was going on on Saturday, that it would be a neat place to take her. We saw everything from Pony Pulls, Mutton Bustin, Antique Tractor Pull and a Quilt Auction. It is really a must to see. Their are lots of Amish, Mennonite and Englishers (Fancy, me). There is lots of food and interesting sights to see. Hands down though Demelia's Quilt Co. was the highlight of our day!
This is the owner Cindy and her daughter. We were having so much fun talking, that I didn't get her daughter's name or maybe I did and I don't always hold that in my brain real well. Sorry!!! My sister and I had so much fun in this quilt shop. They have worked so hard at making it look sooooo cute, so that when you walk in you feel right at home! The name of the shop is Demelia's Quilt Co. I love the name. It fits the store perfectly. I found some wonderful vintage pieces and my sister found some flannel. We truly had so much fun and the girls there are just an absolute delight. They will treat you like you have been friends forever.
This is the place to be!!!!

Cindy used antiques throughout the store to display all her quilt books, fabrics, patterns and notions.
The red section was a must stop for me!

We left the store and my Phil and I saw this precious little boy! I just had to take a picture! I didn't get the little boy's face to respect the Amish.

He was just looking around for something to play with. Look at those sweet little chubby hands.
They had lots and lots of horses. They were beautiful. We have 5 ourself so it was a treat to see some others.
The Mutton Bustin as they call it was fun to watch. They didn't stay on to well this year, but we still enjoyed watching. Last year our grandchildren did this. I laughed so hard.
I can't wait to start sewing with the new fabrics I got at Demelia's. I need to get some orders off first, then I will get busy. My sis and I had so much fun on the day we got to sew together. I wish she lived next door. We are truly so grateful for our friendship. I had to take her to the airport today. It is always hard, but the one thing we do know. We will spend eternity together and never have to say goodbye again!!!! Hope all of you are doing well. I think of you often. I am so grateful for everyone that comes by and leaves a note. It brightens my day. God Bless you all and Cindy and daughter just be looking for me. It won't be long I promise. Then I will get the name and won't have to call you daughter. smile You can leave a comment and invite everyone to your store!!! mmmmm.... that would be a fun thing to happen. Ladies if you go tell them I sent you.
