Wordless Wednesday - Visiting The Mennonite Community


Good morning and a very lovely Wednesday to you. May I interest in a  Not So Wordless Wednesday post?🤗  

Last week Mr. Pinker and I took ride to the Mennonite community a couple of counties over. It is always a delight to visit this small community.  I hope you enjoy this ride out into the country. 


The first stop was the fabric store. 

 I came home with these lovely fabrics. 

Aren't these fabrics beautiful? 

The red and green fabrics area  Kaye England print. 








The homes are so beautiful. 










 Thank you for taking time to drop by for a visit. May your day be filled with peace and love. 

As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, y'all

Melisa

Thank you for the sweet visit.

    1. Oh how exciting, Pam! We love the greenhouses too; I always load up on plants come springtime and fall when the mums come out. We usually stop at several of the businesses. You will have to visit the quilt shop- lots of pretty fabrics there and gorgeous quilts as well. Thank you for the sweet Wednesday visit. Hugs and Blessings.

    1. Aaah those are sweet memories, Julierose. I bet you just loved being out and about on the farm especially it being a dairy farm. I know grandparents were busy. Did you help in the milking? Thank you for the sweet Wednesday visit. Hugs.

You are going to have to make a trip to the community. I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. Thank you for dropping by. Hugs.

    1. It was a lovely day to be out exploring. I have to admit I love the rolling hills too especially when there is farmland to see. I think I already have a project in mind for the fabrics - well at least for 2 of them. Lol. I hope you had a wonderful day, Carol and thank you for dropping in for a visit. Hugs.

    1. It was a nice day to be out and about. It started out rainy but soon the sun peeked out from the clouds and dried things up. The livestock is my favorite too. We saw more this trip than we have seen in the past. Thank you for taking time to visit me, Terry. I hope you have been having a great week. Hugs.

    1. Aaaah you made my day! I am so touched by you kindness ; thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just finished my strawberry quilt top and will be posting it on Friday. When I get back home from my camping trip , I will draw out the pattern and post it so you can make one of your own . It is so easy and has been a joy to work on. I used lots and lots of little scraps. Thank you again for the sweet visit. Hugs.

  11. Looks like a beautiful drive and such interesting sights, too! When we were in Kentucky a few weeks ago, we were on some country roads like that - so pretty. We even saw an Amish horse and buggy trotting along! I love the fabric you found - looking forward to seeing what you make with it!

  14. What a fun day in the country. The scenery is lovely. Love the look of weathered barnwood. Jersey cows are so pretty. Their coloration looks so soft. Makes me want to pet them. Your fabric choices are so bright and fun. Those 30's repros have such cute images on them. I'm sure you have something fun in mind already.

    1. We had a wonderful time, Ginny. The Jerseys were my favorite to see. They are so sweet but a little sassy too. Lol. We saw horses, sheep and ponies but no chickens this time. I already have an idea for the 30's fabrics. I wish I had bought more of those. Oh well maybe that means another trip. Lol. Happy Thursday , sweet friend. Hugs.

    1. Aaah thank you so much, Susie. It was a wonderful day to be out. We visited the greenhouses, the quilt shop and the general store. My favorite was just seeing the livestock and the farmers at work though. Oh yes, I am posting a Strawberry Mini Sampler on Saturday, my quilt top on Friday and a new Strawberry stamp on Sunday. I hope you drop back by for a visit. Have a beautiful day. Hugs.
