Middlebury & Shipshewanna
|Sure did enjoy shopping at the Lolly's - upstairs and down. The boat!|
|One of the buildings at Das Essenhaus.|
|Found these around town. Hickory |
rocking chairs - the most comfortable chair!
We stayed at the Middlebury Hampton Inn which was brand-new and really nice. It was also pretty central for getting around to different places. There was way more than you could do in a couple days which is all we had this time. We took an Amish farm tour. I thought it was going to be more of a drive through the country but it ended up being about how a dairy farm works which was fun too. (and gross)... Our guide Clarence was a total character. The day we were headed home we stopped in Nappannee. We didn't have time to take the tour @ Amish Acres but we did some shopping and spent some time at a great museum in Nappanee.
|This was the first thing I saw when we pulled into town... I knew we were in the right place.|
|This was gorgeous. This was in the gift shop at Amish Acres.|
|This was the smallest of a trio. The squares are 3/8-1/2". |
At the museum in Nappannee.
|Really cool anniversary quilt... have often wondered if you could do something like this...|
|This is an antique church-fundraising quilt. The quilting on this was great.|
|Another great piece in the Nappannee museum.|
|One of the "Quilt Gardens"|
|What a great idea. Loved these - only saw about 6 or 7 of them...|
