Still rolling!!!!

I can hardly believe it !! I framed another piece!

I'm going to come clean and tell you that this Amish piece was done about 15+ years ago!!! It was in the stack of "to be framed or finished some day." I'm not working on any stitching for fear that I'll lose my motivation to finish the stack, but I haven't lost my mojo. I've got a whole binder full of patterns to ponder.
For years we rented a house on Keuka Lake which is one of the Finger Lakes in NY. The house was next to my sister's cottage. Now we vacation in her new lake home. There is a large population of Amish and Mennonites in the area and it isn't uncommon to see them at the supermarket or to see their carriage and horses sharing the roads.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! I love all your comments- thanks a million!
Hugs and Stitches!

Congrats on your framing! It's great that you're revisiting your older pieces and giving them some attention. I'v got to get my framing mojo on.

There is a very large Amish and Mennonite community in my part of Ohio. Lots of buggies on the roads here! It's not unusual to see vans full of the Amish going to Walmart. They even haul a trailer to carry all the purchases. There are people that earn a living by driving those vans.

I'm going to end up with a huge pile of to be finished someday pieces too. I love stitching but struggle to find someone to give everything I stitch a home.

Congrats on the framing x
